Chandler High Wolf Bytes
School of Champions
The CHS students, staff and community honored America’s armed forces and paid tribute to the lives lost on 9/11 by donning red, white and blue and waving hundreds of flags during Thursday’s varsity football game vs. Desert Ridge. CHS’s AFJROTC presented the colors pre-game, and Colonel Jones and MSgt Goodson flipped the game coin. The Varsity Wolves, helmeted with a flag-themed C-Wolf, went on to defeat Desert Ridge 60-39.
