Manila holds first Powder Puff football game
Manila High School students held their first Powder Puff football game Friday afternoon with the odds and evens going against each other shoulder pad to shoulder pad.
The senior and sophomore girls teamed up for the home team and the junior and freshman girls made up the guest team.
Volunteering to coach the girls were Assistant Superintendent Chris Ferrell (former football coach) and Greg Wheeler (softball coach). Other volunteers joined the fund-raising fun as the girls ran for the touchdowns and the football players cheered them on.
Football players enjoyed a few stunt cheers and realized "cheering" can be work. They also performed a half-time routine.
The Manila High School Marching Band joined in on the day.
Student body, teachers, staff and guests gathered at the football field for the Powder Puff debut.
It was all for a good cause. Half of the proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation and half will go to the senior class to help with senior activities.
The powder puff teams did very well with only a few days of practice. The senior and sophomore team won the game.
