Auburn High Senior Pulls Double-Duty Under the Friday Night Lights

Most high school football players look at halftime as a reprieve. They catch their breath and strategize for the second half. For Eric Lier, a senior at Auburn High School, halftime is just another showcase.

Memorizing a football playbook and a marching band’s halftime program would seem like a tall task for any student, but for Lier, that is a typical Friday night. When his teammates hit the locker room at intermission, he jogs across the field to join his Auburn High bandmates.
