(FOUNTAIN, Co., SHOT 10/2/2004) Lake County Panthers football players walk around the locker room without their shoes on as they suit up for a game against the Salida Spartans during Lake County's Homecoming Game at Lake County High School in Leadville, Co. The team has made a tradition of and show of respect by not wearing cleats in the locker room and waiting to put their shoes on until they are outside of the locker room. Lake County plays 2A football on a field that is nearly 2 miles above sea level, the highest football field in the world. The elevation hasn't really been a home field advantage for the Panthers though as they are off to an 0-5 start on the season and first year coach Harrison Chisum admits he is trying to build some semblence of a football tradition at the school. The team only had 12 kids come out for the football team the previous year and the team was forced to play a junior varsity schedule. Lake County was down 42-0 and ended up losing the game 42-28. Coach Chisum was happy with the team's second half performance because they hadn't scored a touchdown on offense in four games. (Photo by MARC PISCOTTY / ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
