There’s something special cooking at Friday Harbor High School this Friday, Sept. 21. As the FHHS Wolverines’ offense serves up a steady dose of “ground and pound” rushing attack, the Purple and Gold Boosters Club will serve up a half pound of beef ala In & Out’s Animal burger.
The Wolverines defense has been handing out “nothing burgers” for the past nine-plus quarters of football. They put that streak on the line Friday night in a home, nonleague game against the Sultan Turks beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Playing in just their second home crowd, the athletes are looking forward to competing for the community, says head football coach Brock Hauck. He says that the team is ready to play in front of the home crowd.
Purple and Gold Tailgate Party starts an hour before kickoff at 5:30 p.m. This week’s featured burger is the Animal burger, similar to the In & Out burger, with American cheese, grilled onions, secret sauce on a potato bun, with chips and a drink for $12.
Burger master extraordinaire Koshi Herko-Holt says that she hopes that fans come for the burger and stay for the ball game. Koshi says that there’s nothing better on a Friday night than a little bit of ground and pound football and a grilled half-pound of beef. She warned fans to get there early so that don’t get shut out.
