Two West Virginia Boys Use Tree Stand by Football Field to Watch Games From

Written by Nate

In most states in this country, there will be either limited or no fans in attendance to watch high school sports events from based on restrictions from Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. However, two boys in Richwood, West Virginia had a creative way to watch games for themselves.

A Facebook post by Summer Miller-Beck shows the two boys using a tree stand to watch their school’s football games from—and in my opinion, they appear to be the best seats in the house.

As you can see the photos above, the tree stand is just nearby the fence line in which the football field lies.

The idea may have sparked from the two boys after the West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission (WVSSAC) sent a memo out to all parents in the state that along with athletes, only family members and coaches are allowed to enter and participate in high school games.

From the MetroNews in West Virginia, each county in the state is solely based on the ‘color’ status of either green or yellow. The ‘Green’ status stands for only immediate household members, while the ‘Yellow’ represents parents of athletes and spouses of coaches only.

Along with status restrictions listed, masks are also required for entry and to watch games in the stands, if they cannot maintain social distancing guidelines.
