Little Axe has never had homecoming this late into the season, but it also might be the best homecoming the team has experienced.

The Indians will play at their new stadium for the first time Friday against Prague.

“It’s definitely exciting for the kids,” coach Tony Smith said. “They’ve been through a lot this season.”

Little Axe has put itself right back in the playoff hunt, winning three consecutive games. Smith said the team has played better and that putting Robby Dryden in the quarterback spot of the Wildcat formation has led to success.

The Little Axe stadium was destroyed by the tornado that hit the Little Axe community in May. The Indians had played all their scheduled home games at Noble.

Should be a great scene Friday. We will have a photographer there, and then I’ll be following with coach Smith and his players about what it was like to finally be playing at home in a future article.
