From youth football to the National Football League, athletes around the country have shown their support for people who have been affected by breast cancer by wearing pink on the field. This year, the varsity football team took their support to another level. They sold pink breast cancer shirts to include the fans in on the support. The team started selling the shirts on September 25 and donated the profits to the American Cancer Society. They encouraged students who bought a shirt to wear them to their game against Horace Greeley on October 11.

Senior Matt Reynolds was the curator behind the shirt idea. He said, “I thought it would be a fun way to get the community to come together for a good cause.”

The team sold the shirts for fifteen dollars each outside of the auditorium. They sold 200 shirts in total and accumulated 500 dollars in profits, which they donated to the American Cancer Society.
