Fans of the Breckenridge Buckaroos started drumming up support for the varsity football team with a 24-hour drumming session in Foundation Park on the corner of Walker Street and Breckenridge Avenue beginning today at noon. The Buckaroos will face the Brock High School Eagles in Abilene on Thursday in the Bi-District playoff game.

Organized by the MOB — Mothers of Buckaroos — and other supporters, the drummers will work in 1-hour shifts in downtown Breckenridge until the send-off for the team at 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15.

This is the second year in a row for the spirit drumming event.

Fans also can offer their support of the team at the pep rally Thursday morning. The pep rally is scheduled to start at 10:05 a.m., following the Veterans Day program in the Breckenridge ISD Athletic Facility and Fine Arts Center (the big gym).

The game will kick off at 7 p.m. in Abilene’s Shotwell Stadium, 1525 East South 11th St. Adult tickets to the game will cost $7 each, and student tickets will cost $5. Parking will cost $5. Breckenridge will be the “home team” in the game.
