We have some of the best high schools here in our area. They give us a lot to be proud of. We are about to start football season and I know there are a lot of us looking forward to heading out to the stadium.

Not only are our high school teams suited up and ready to play. We have a lot of other high school spirit just waiting. We have the cheerleaders giving it their all. Oh, and don't forget the band. It is not a game without the sounds of the band.

The band has been at it for a while now. We may have just started school but they have had camps and practice. Oh, and a few schools use this time in the early school year to start some fundraising.

One of the traditions that have been around for a while is the good ol' March-a-Thon. I remember growing up in Canyon and since it is a small town the whole community got involved.

Last weekend was the joy that was Canyon's March-a-Thon. Oh, and social media took notice. My favorite post was from someone who obviously just moved into Canyon.

It's just not Canyon without them showing their Eagle pride. It's always been a cool thing.

Now they are not the only schools that partake in this school spirit. Amarillo High has its own March-a-thon. The only problem is Amarillo of course is a bigger city so they only get around the school neighborhood. So that is a bummer.

New this year was Randall High taking part with their first ever March-a-thon. They figured they can't let Canyon and Amarillo High have all the fun.

Here is to another year of school spirit here in the Texas Panhandle.

Teeny Tiny Towns of the Texas Panhandle

Don't blink! You just might miss these TINY towns that are dotted around the Texas Panhandle.

Some of these are unincorporated communities and some of these are just plain ol' small!

Either way, these teensy weensy tiny towns and their populations will make you say "wow" (and maybe even squint and say "that's all!?"). Check them out:
