Varsity Football Game

We have another home game on Friday, September 27, against Grace Preparatory Academy. Kickoff is a 7:30 p.m. Help us kickoff Breast Cancer Awareness Month and honor our outstanding Technology, Social Studies, and Theology teachers during our pre-game show.


Additionally, we will be kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness Month at this game. At the end of our pre-game show, we would like to recognize all the courageous people who have survived the disease, currently have it, or are battling along side with a loved one. Everyone impacted by cancer will be invited to join us on the sideline to walk with the captains onto the field for the coin toss.

Everyone attending the game is encouraged to wear the "In this Family no one Fights Alone" t-shirt, a pink colored t-shirt, or their "Annette's Angels" t-shirt.
