For the Drummonds, Fridays are about family and soccer.
Ree Drummond shared a sweet photo on Instagram of her daughter Alex, son-in-law Mauricio Scott and nephew Stuart Smith at the Food Network star’s son Todd’s soccer game.
In the photo, Stu is sandwiched between Alex and Mauricio and the three of them look excited to be standing on the football field at Pawhuska High School, where Todd plays quarterback for the Pawhuska Huskies varsity team.
Ree, her husband Ladd, and Todd are the only members of the family still living on their ranch in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, so the famous cook acknowledges the sacrifices her other children (and her nephew!) make to reach their goals. Friday night games.
“They have their friends and their jobs and their college classes and their lives… but on Friday nights in the fall, they’re Huskie fans. They traveled home and showed up! 🧡🖤😭 Thank God for football,” wrote.
Several Drummond kids have played for the Pawhuska Huskies, including Bryce, 19, and his adopted son Jamar, 18. (Bryce now plays college football at the University of North Texas, Jamar at the University of Central Oklahoma and Todd will play at the University of South Dakota next year.)
As always with family photos of Drummond, the comments section was filled with loving messages from friends, family and fans. But several followers also noticed a change in Stuart’s appearance.
“I’m so glad he shaved off that mustache,” one follower wrote, also adding several smiley face emojis. Drummond responded to the comment: “So does Aunt Ree!!!”
Drummond has had soccer in mind and even dedicated the most recent cover of the Pioneer Woman Magazine to Todd. In the fall issue, out now, the mother-son duo are all smiles on the cover: Todd in his orange soccer uniform and Ree in festive orange earrings.
“There is nothing more exciting and exciting than Friday night football games in a small town,” he said in the Pioneer Woman Magazine drop problem. On the other hand, he joked that there’s also “nothing more stressful for a quarterback’s mom than Friday night football games.”
During Friday night games, the local chef often cheers in the stands for his son, who rates his excitement levels as he plays. “On a scale of one to 10, she comes in at an 11,” Todd told the magazine.
