It was time to “Meet the Chiefs” as NCHS got the fast approaching football season off to a rousing start Thursday, August 22. A packed gym full of students, families and Chief supporters were introduced to the cheerleaders, chiefettes, maroon line, trainers, coaches and the football team. There was no shortage of school spirit as the NCHS marching band played the fight song and the Chief’s signature “Chop.”
The Chiefs were also selling season passes and VIP parking passes. Interested fans could also bid on a range of items such as jerseys, windbreakers and helmets. All funds raised by the auction and ticket sales go to help fund the NCHS football program. Everything from transportation to away games to feeding the team on gameday and on the way home on away games comes from this fund.
The 2019 NCHS football season promises to be quite exciting. For a very modest ticket price, you can see some hard hitting football action. You can also see young men and women achieving excellence on a number of levels. From the marching band’s superb shows and constant support of the players to the cheerleaders, chiefettes and maroon line’s well done cheers, stunting and wonderful dancing, to the trainers who spend hours in training and watching over their players, the young men and women of NCHS are a joy to watch.
The Chief’s first home game will be against North Desoto on Friday, Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. Come out, bring the family, have a wonderful time and support our young people. Go Chiefs!
