Get all Friday Night Lights on us. Get your community even more hyped up about your teams. Show how they “Protect This House.” The more passion, the more pride, the better chance your school has of moving to the next round. So give it all you've got—and then give some more.

This is what we're going to do FRIDAY,  Nov 30:
Meet in the Pit Friday at 6 PM.  We will film our march up the strip towards the gym with the drum-line! We are showing community support for our school so EVERYONE - parents, friends, siblings come help us film a CROWD marching to the game!
