The senior women and the class of 2017 hosted the 14th annual Powder Puff game on April 5 to raise money for prom and give back to our local community program, Reach Unlimited.

To prep for the game, both senior and junior ladies recruited varsity football players to coach them on winning game techniques and getting them into shape.

English teacher Alicia Vedder and Meredith Owen were the sponsors along with the 2018 junior class sponsor Alexandra McKinnon.

“It’s a fun activity to get the girls involved, and I always like that the girls at the end of the game kinda realize how difficult it is or how much of a challenge football can be,” Vedder said.

Senior Sabrina Saravia joined powder puff for the fun senior year activity. After learning about it her junior year, she knew she wanted to participate during her final year of high school.

“I watch football and stuff, and [powder puff is] something at least to do out of my senior school year,” Saravia said.

Both junior and senior girls began practice at the beginning of March. Junior girls practiced after school from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays while senior girls practiced on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Senior football varsity player Chavous Gwyn helped coach the girls after school along with his football peers. Although he is use to listening to his coach on the football field, coaching others brought on new experiences for Gwyn.

“Coaching has really got me to appreciate my coaches a lot more because it teaches how you have to break it down for some people sometimes, and yet you have to keep it to a speed where you’re not babying them, so it takes a lot more than I thought, but it’s a really fun experience,” Gwyn said.

Since many of the senior girls and varsity football players are friends, the hour long practice became a fun bonding moment.

“Most of us are seniors and we get along with them and we know them as friends. I feel friends can coach each other,” Saravia said. “It makes memories and we learn something about football.”
