Homecoming Livestream Huddle

Friday night lights has been a high school tradition since the late 19th century.  A lot has changed since it’s humble beginnings and there is perhaps no home crowd like a stadium full of East Texas families cheering for their home team.  This Friday, September 24, 2021, the Frankston Indians will take to the field to celebrate the districts Homecoming game.  This year spectators that would like to watch the game but are unable to attend will be able to see the game livestreamed through the Athletic Department’s HUDL camera on the Frankston ISDs YouTube channel.
