This year for homecoming week the Travelers Rest Devildogs will be taking on the Greer Yellow Jackets. This matchup will take place on Sept. 29th at 7:30 p.m. at Dean “Chico” Bolin Stadium in Travelers Rest, South Carolina. Some would say the homecoming game can be the most exciting and most unpredictable game of the year.

The Greer Yellow Jackets were the AAAA Region II conference champions in 2015 and will go into the game against Travelers Rest holding a 4-1 record. Their only loss was to Byrnes who is ranked as the No. 2 team in the state. Greer is currently ranked as the No. 11 team in South Carolina. The Devildogs struggled early in the season but recently got a win against Carolina High School and have put a lot of work into getting ready for the rest of the season.

Some fans have stayed supportive of the team through thick and thin; but unfortunately, the support has not been as strong lately. To say the least, a tough game is approaching and many have questioned the decision to play the Yellow Jackets for homecoming week. Josh Gibson, junior and member of the Varsity football team, said, “I think we will do a lot better against Greer than people expect.”

No matter who wins on Sept. 29th, it is expected to be a hard-fought battle between two hungry teams. Be sure to come out and support your Travelers Rest Devildogs. The entire 2017 Varsity schedule is below. All games start 7:30p.m.
