There’s a full day of activities on the schedule today for fans of the Breckenridge High School Buckaroos, all leading up to tonight’s football playoff game against the Brock Eagles.

The first thing on the agenda is the ongoing drumming in downtown Breckenridge. The spirit drummers temporarily moved to a spot in front of the courthouse so they didn’t disturb the residents who live across the street from Foundation Park, but they expect to be back at the corner of Walker Street and Breckenridge Avenue by 8 a.m. this morning.

The fans, led by the MOB — Mothers of Buckaroos — have been drumming since noon Wednesday in one-hour shifts. They plan to continue drumming up until the Buckaroo Send-off at 1:15 p.m. today, Thursday, Nov. 15.

A pep rally will be held in the Breckenridge ISD Athletic Facility and Fine Arts Center (the big gym) at 10:05 a.m., following the Veterans Day Program, which is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. in the gym.

At 1:15 p.m., the community will have a send-off the varsity football team as they travel to Abilene for the game. Fans can gather in downtown Breckenridge to cheer on the Buckaroos as the buses leave town. The MOB and spirit drummers will gather in Foundation Park for the send-off.

The Bi-District playoff game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. today 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 against the Brock High School Eagles. The winner of this game will go on to play the winner of the Brownfield-Slaton game in the Area round.
