Kicking off the 2016 football season, the Cardington-Lincoln High School football team held its annual pie auction Saturday, Aug. 6.

The event began with an inter-squad scrimmage followed by a carry in dinner held in the high school cafeteria. Sharing the dinner were players, coaches, cheerleaders and their families.

The traditional pie auction followed with players and cheerleaders providing 55 homemade pies. Each was auctioned by Wes Wigton, who volunteers his time for this project. The top pie, an Oreo Cream, baked by Luke McCarrell, was purchased for $552 by his grandmother, Vera Valdez. McCarrell, a senior, is the team captain and starting quarterback.

Proceeds from the auction will purchase equipment and uniforms. The team and coaches thank all of the families, friends and businesses who attended the dinner and made the pie auction a success. A spokesperson added “The team hopes to see everyone in the stands and intends to play hard for Cardington.”
