The atmosphere is so electric you think you’re watching a postseason game.
Since the Brownstown Central-Seymour football rivalry was revived in 2007, nearly every year fans have been on the edge of their seats from the beginning. The outcome has been decided by seven or fewer points four of the past five years, so fans have been treated to an exciting game.
It has been brought up a few times, though, that people think the county rivalry is coming to an end. But after talking to Brownstown athletics director Mark DeHart and Seymour athletics director Brandon Harpe, the contract still has a few more years. The matchup will go on.
“There’s nothing that would tell me that we’re not interested in playing each other,” DeHart said. “I think it’s great for the community. It’s good for both schools. It’s a big game. It’s been a pretty good game recently, which adds to the interest.”
Harpe said, “It’s a good game because it’s a competitive game, it’s a good game for school spirit, it’s a good game for the communities, and it’s a good revenue game, too.”
