Football prepared for likely final home game

Caden Miller

Derby football is likely playing in its last home game when it hosts to Gardner-Edgerton in the second round of the Class 6A playoffs.

This year the Panthers haven’t had their normal number of home games. 

Two home games were canceled in the regular season because of Covid-19.

And because they have two losses, they are not the top seed like usual. The top seed hosts games through the semifinals. 

To senior Luke Stewart, this final home game means much more. .

“The final home means a lot,” he said. “I have played here since I was a kid, so it means a lot to me.”
