The undefeated Largo Packers host the St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the first semifinal high school football game in Pinellas County in 10 years. Here's a fan's guide:
What's at stake?
Winner goes to the state championship game.
How do I get a ticket?
Get in line. (Sorry, no advance tickets.) The ticket booth, at 410 Missouri Ave., will open at 6 p.m. on game day. Tickets are $7.
How many will be available?
2,500. St. Thomas Aquinas gets another 1,000.
Are there enough seats?
Packer Stadium holds about 2,700. The school is looking for temporary bleachers.
Can I watch on television?
Yes, on Bright House Networks Channel 47.
How good is St. Thomas Aquinas?
Very. The Fort Lauderdale team is a traditional powerhouse with 10 state championship appearances, including the past three seasons (all losses to Lakeland).
Will there be any action off the field?
Don't miss "The Gigolo," a fourth-quarter tradition where Largo's band forces the crowd to show spirit by dancing when their class or organization is called.
