Football Season Underway


As falls rolls in, the students of PHS begin to look forward to more than pumpkins and trick-or-treating.

This, of course, is the football stadium jam-packed on a Friday night. This year, the Paoli football team is waiting to prove themselves after their three win season last year. They can be seen dotting the hallways with purple and white, and also on the field every day after school. In the upcoming months the team will play every week on Cook field, located just South of the high school.

The players are not the only ones preparing for the big show. Head coach, Brian Balsmeyer had some comments about his team’s chances this year.

“All I know is we better have some kids ready to play football. I love the sport and couldn’t be more excited for the season, but it’s up to our players how it turns out,” said Balsmeyer.

The games this season will be every Friday at 7, unless there is conflict with time zones. Athletic schedules can be found in the office.

Students are strongly encouraged to come out and support their school during the 2016 football season. The players would greatly appreciate your attendance, and a chance to show off all of their hard work.
