Every year, homecoming royalty is chosen by PHS students and announced at a home football game about halfway through the season. Due to this special occasion, the football team wears a one-of-a-kind jersey during this game. Both fans and players enjoy this tradition of these unique jerseys.
“Players and people who attend the homecoming game love the jerseys. It’s almost another thing people can look forward to other than homecoming itself,” said athletic director Darek Newkirk.
Homecoming jersey color can vary from year to year, usually ranging from the colors purple, gold or charcoal. Not only does jersey color change yearly, jersey style can also vary widely. In years past, jerseys have been anywhere from throwback to camouflage. The homecoming game will be against West Washington on September 15. The game will begin at 7 p.m. Come out and cheer on the team and catch a glimpse of this year’s homecoming jerseys.
