But there was a different type of uniformed kid in action as well.
High school football players kicked off the Missouri playoffs around the Show-Me State.
The unbeaten Strafford Indians hosted Houston in Class 2 District 3.
Strafford is 9-0, Houston is 1-8.
And it was a muddy track for the Indians.
Jacob Wade had all kinds of time, here he hooks up with Dallas Hester on a 25 yard touchdown pass it's 7-nothing Strafford.
Houston would fumble the kickoff, and Strafford takes advantage, next play Wade and Hester hook up again, this time from 19 yards out it's 14-nothing.
Next Strafford possession, Wade goes up top again, this time a 49-yard touchdown bomb to Kyle Foley, 20-nothing.
At that point wade was 3-4 for 93 yards and three touchdowns.
And the Indians shut out Houston 54-nothing.
