Benjamin's Blog: Cape Central home opener

Vashon touchdown against Cape Central

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Hello, I'm Benjamin Broeckling and I'm a student at Blanchard Elementary in Cape Girardeau.

I'm a huge high school football fan and with the help of my dad, I'm going to start a high school football blog.

My dad works at KFVS and he will help tell my story each week. I'm just 7 years old, but I love attending football games.

This won't be a blog about which team is the best or who's the best player in the area.

This will be more about my experience as I travel from stadium to stadium.

Last week, I attended the home opener for Cape Central. The Tigers lost, but I had a great time.

The stadium is super cool. It's almost like a small college football stadium. The players play on real turf!

Cape Central lost in overtime to Vashon. I'm not a fan of teams from St. Louis coming down and beating our teams from southeast Missouri.

Check out the attached video of a Vashon touchdown.

Friday August 28, I plan to attend a game in Jackson. I hope you enjoy reading about my experience!
