The halftime show at the regional playoff game between the Prairie Buffalos and the Parsons Vikings featured a patriotic salute to members of the United States Armed Forces. Members of American Legion Hewitt New Post No. 248 from Mound City participated in the show, which included a musical tribute to the Marines, Army, Coast Guard, Air Force and Navy.
