LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Foothill Falcons took to the field at Allegiant Stadium Friday -- the first Las Vegas valley high school team to do so.
For seniors, this is their only chance to play, but it’s certainly a memorable one.
First high school football team to take the field at @AllegiantStadm is the Foothill Falcons. @Raiders inviting teams to get the chance to play. For these seniors it is an abrupt season to say the least but it’s a memorable one. @KTNV pic.twitter.com/CB0inwo6vp— Todd Quinones (@ToddQuinones) April 23, 2021
On Friday and Saturday, a handful of schools chosen by the Clark County School District get to play team scrimmages on Raiders' field.
The high schools are Foothill, Centennial, Liberty, Del Sol Academy, Sierra Vista, Arbor View, Basic, Rancho and Chaparral.
Each team gets two hours to play. They can't play other teams, rather they are playing intrasquad scrimmages.
Friends and family are not allowed in the stands, but still, players are no doubt experiencing the chance of a lifetime.
