Friday, November 9, 2012
Nearly 100 middle school musicians experienced the thrill of playing under the Friday night lights when they joined the Centennial High School Marching Knights for 8th Grade Night recently.

But Friday night, Justin Sanderson and his gritty Roswell Hornet football squad managed to effectively tear down the demons of a seasons past with a 42-13 rout of their Roswell rivals, the Centennial Knights. After a nightmarish 0-10 2011 season, the Hornets set a very different tone early in the 2012 campaign. A complete domination of a region rival has Hornets players and fans rejuvenated in the historic franchise. Despite a few offensive miscues in the beginning of the game, the Hornets offense rallied behind the performance …
