Texas High School Football

In 2005 our grandson, Matt, was heavy into football. He’d hear the horns and bells that fans brought to the college games. Being a resourceful person, he rushed out and bought PVC and an armload of automatic transmission fluid funnels. Heat from the kitchen range made it possible to bend the pipe in the desired shape. The funnels served as bells. The length and diameter of the components amplified the sound. During the finals the Allen Eagles traveled five hours to Huntsville for one of the final games. It was broadcast over the Allen TV station ans his mother heard the blast of one of Matt’s horns during the broadcast of the game.

The horn

His enterprise was so successful he sold every horn he could make before the season finished. You can see Sarah, the sales person moving in from behind.

Excitement ran high that year

Equal credit is Sarah, Matt’s Sister. She sold nearly all the horns. You can see she has a firm grip on that horn while her customer digs deep for the cash. The two of them make a great team.

This is the crew that converged on Huntsville that game night. Matt is number 80.
