We've Always Been Football Crazy Here
Driving west of Highway 114 one Friday night I came into the small town of Lorenzo for a stretch break before the final drive into Lubbock. With the exception of the new Stripes mini-mart and an old Alsups, the town was more closed down than even usual. Friday night lights just to the north of the highway told me all I had to know. Lorenzo High School was hosting a football game and the town of about 1,400 people was out in force to cheer on their Hornets.
