Drones could enhance Southeast Texas football practices
A hushed crowd gazed at the night sky in wonder. A gentle whirring was the only sound to interrupt the temporary silence that fell over Kirbyville’s excited homecoming crowd.
Hovering 30 feet above the 50-yard line was a strange object, complete with eerie blue and red flashing lights. The teams moved to the sidelines as coach Greg Neece radioed up to the press box.
An announcement came over the public address system:
“No drones are permitted in the stadium during UIL contests.”
Neece admitted later his first thought was a UFO.
