The Cowboys take on South Plantation tonight in the homecoming game where the team hopes to land a spot as a top three football team in Broward County.
“We’re trying to finish third in the district,” head coach Rod Williams said. “I think we’ll fair well tonight. We’re going to play hard and we’re going to get a good position.”
The entire student body cheered on the team and celebrated school spirit in a pep rally at the Billie R. Gill Stadium Friday morning, where they honored fall sports teams, danced along with the Sound of Pride band and Color Guard and participated in games such as the three-legged race.
“The pep rally was really sick,” sophomore Lucas Huenefeld said. “There was a lot of good energy.”
Freshman Kayla Spennato enjoyed mingling with all grade levels in the bleachers.
“I really liked the pep rally and all of the school spirit involved,” Spennato said.
As for tonight’s varsity football game, the players appeared pumped and ready to take on the Paladins.
“It’s going to be a blow out,” junior and Cowboys center Jesse Rojas said. “Cooper City on top.”
