Sorry for the short notice, but we have a short turnaround from state football championships to getting this released over the weekend of December 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Also, as you will see below this is to remain confidential and OFF of social media until we release it. I need an email address from you ASAP (email all of the following to: [email protected]) so we can send over an advertising packet for your parents for your capsule/bio and information upon arrival in Emporia.
