PREP FOOTBALL: Kamiakin stages 9/11 tribute tonight at Lampson

Football fans heading to Lampson Stadium tonight should arrive early -- and not just to get good seats for the Kamiakin-Moses Lake game.

The game will be preceded by a special 9/11 tribute.

Students from Kamiakin High have organized a pregame show to commemorate the attacks 10 years ago.

Students will carry a 50-by-30-foot American flag into the stadium, give a brief speech, welcome back a local veteran who returned this week from Afghanistan and ring a bell 10 times, said Kayla McCormick, vice president of Kamiakin's student government.

Kamiakin student representatives have asked their counterparts at Moses Lake High School to carry the flag with them.

All spectators are encouraged to wear red, white and blue shirts.

The pregame show starts shortly after 4:30 p.m. The game kicks off at 5 p.m.
