5 Primary/Specialty Headline with Precis Secondary I barely remember shoving my way through the crowd to where my mom was waiting at the W for me. I just remember thinking that I couldnt look at her or I would start crying. She danced the dance with methat moment I will never ever forget, Jeremy Chastain said. F i r s t & 1 0 A feverish pitch resonated throughout the commons and infused the crowd as senior captain Jason Chastain nervously waited to make his debut center stage to perform the traditional hat dance at the state championship game pep rally, November 11. For the first time in history and with unprecedented school spirit, the varsity team advanced to state playoffs winning the championship over the Central High School Tigers, Trust me when I tell you I was no big football fan, but there was a spirit this year from the very first pep rally until the final seconds of the state playoff game. I even performed in our class skit as Underdog and wore red leotards and a Speedo; the crowd gave me a standing ovation. It will be my most remembered moment of the year, if not my high school life, freshman Jeremy Chisum said. An average of 925 out of 1050 students attended 16 pep rallies including a full five days of homecoming spirit week celebrations ranging from dress-up days to a record-setting, 23-float parade. It was nerve-wrecking being the very first person that everyone would see in the parade, band drum major Kendra Montoya said. Once we got about two blocks into the parade route, I was loving it. People were screaming and waving and I realized I was a part of something really important to the school and the community.
