The first four games of the season have the looks of something special for the SM East Lancers football team. And the Lancer Gridiron Club wants former players to get in on the spirit.

The Lancer Gridiron Club is inviting all SM East football alumni to return to the hallowed grounds of SM South Stadium for the first-ever Football Alumni Tailgate this Friday.

Starting at 5:30 p.m. Friday — an hour and a half before kickoff of the Lancers’ homecoming game against Olathe East — the Gridiron Club will start the tailgate party under a tent on the west side stadium parking lot. There will be a food truck as part of the SM East Student Council’s tailgate party, and the Gridiron Club will have dessert and drinks for former Lancer football players.

Football alumni who plan to attend are encouraged to RSVP to Ann Spivak at 913-484-2240 or
