If you only go to one high-school football game this season … this Friday night is the one. It’s the annual crosstown contest between West Seattle High School and Chief Sealth International High School, known as the Huling Bowl (the trophy above will be held by the winning team till the following year), an event long supported by the Huling family, including a free barbecue before the game (get there early! barbecue at 5, football at 7, Southwest Athletic Complex). Sealth athletic director Sam Reed says there’ll also be face-painting stations in both schools’ colors, and since this is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you’ll see some pink – including pink socks for both teams and their cheer squads, and pink paint/hairspray for fans. SW Athletic Complex is at 2801 SW Thistle.
