On August 31, the school came together to show their support for the Maverick football team in a familiar fashion, a pep-rally. Students began to fill the Gillmore Amphitheater Friday morning in anticipation for the game that night.
“It was a truly mouthwatering experience,” junior band member Austin Lee said. “I was flabbergasted by the immersive pep-rally.”
The entire school body incorporated a joint effort to make the pep-rally a very lively event. The band, dancers, teachers and baseball team did their best to make this occasion energizing.
“The pep-rally gets the whole school riled up and gives a chance for the football players to not just play for themselves but for the whole school,” junior football player Scott Ferguson said.
The school campus eagerly awaits to see the Mavericks finally in action as they play against Steele.
“We know every year is a new year and every team’s a new team,” Maverick’s football coach Jim Streety said. “It’s the time to find out the identity of this team and go from there.”
