“I just wanted to let the rest of the readers know just how much the parents of the Westville High School varsity football team appreciate what the Oakwood team did for us.

“I am a parent of one of the senior football players who got to have their night on their home field recently. (Editor’s note: The game had been scheduled to be played at Oakwood High, but Westville had no more home games due to forfeits of opponents. Oakwood agreed to switch the game to Westville.)

“So we wanted to be sure that they know that we want to tell them thank you very much and we will forever remember the night that the Oakwood Comets gave us our night for our seniors to shine.

“Again, thank you, Oakwood.”
