Meet the tigers

Athletic Director encourages fans to celebrate all high school sports

Like every football game, the audience was electric. Stands were full from top to bottom with students and parents. Though it is still early in the year, there is already a lot of excitement from our fellow tigers.

The annual Friday Night Lights event was kicked off with the cheer team’s performance followed up by the Tiger Belles as they performed for the crowd. 

When the athletic teams ran out to introduce themselves, Coach Mitchell encouraged every fan to show support and school spirit throughout the entire year for every sports team. The success made by the athletic teams last year motivates the players to go up from where they were. Everyone participated by giving a proud tiger roar.

 “Today we performed Friday Night Lights at the football stadium for all of our kids to watch,” dance teacher and assistant director of the tiger belles, Ms. Sarah Barren said, “We prepared to dance over the summer. We perfected, cleaned it, and worked on it. We set our formations and had a tryout. The dancers came out and performed their routine and all of our team was in this performance.” 

 The cheerleaders and Tiger Belles are a perfect example of school spirit. They attend every game even if they are not performing and they come up with catchy chants to get their fellow tigers on their feet.

 “The process leading up to this was really exciting,” freshman Klhoe Guerra said. “There was a lot of enthusiasm for it. The experience was really fun and it was a fun time. I loved it!” 

 Last year’s Friday Night Lights event was nothing compared to this year’s noise at the field.

“This year there were a lot more people in the stands,” sophomore Jaxon Bailey said. “Last year there were a lot more parents and this year there were a lot more students. Also the build up to it was better. All around the energy was better.” 

The camaraderie among players creates a special bond. There are stories of players keeping in touch after high school to help out their colleagues when in need.

“The brotherhood,” Bailey said. “It’s just special. Just knowing that someone has your back and you have theirs. This is a winning school. When you’re used to winning, you’re used to winning.”
