On Oct. 21, 1978, the Evergreen High School Cougars varsity football team became the little team that could. Against long odds, it beat Columbine 29-22 in Evergreen’s homecoming game.
That was the last varsity football game to be played in Evergreen … until now.
Travel forward 31 years to Oct. 2, 2009, and the football team will once again play a homecoming game on its own turf, against the Conifer Lobos. The big game, dubbed the Mountain Bowl, is set for 7 p.m.
