Denham Springs football returns to field, bright lights after historic flooding

“Normal” isn’t a word that’s being tossed around Denham Springs lately.

Ever since historic flooding hit the southern portion of Louisiana in mid-August, the entire region has been working to get back to some semblance of normalcy.

Although life has been anything but.

A small piece of that will change Friday though, as one of the area’s strongest uniting factors returns to the city: high school football.

It may not seem like much of a big deal, but anyone from the city or surrounding area knows what the Yellow Jackets mean to the community.

“When you talk about Friday night lights and high school football across the country, the communities that have the one high school that’s based in their city, there’s a lot of pride like that everywhere,” said head coach Dru Nettles. “Denham Springs is no exception. It’s a special place.”

When the clock strikes 7 p.m. and the ball is teed up for the opening kickoff, it’s not only going to signify the start of a new football season for Denham Springs.

No, it’s so much more than that.
