Dear Pope Family,
We would like to sincerely thank all the Varsity, Junior, Youth football and cheer families that came out to support their kids during the 2019 Blue & White Spring Game & Dinner on the Green fundraiser. As you know this was a Pope Touchdown Club event, not an official school function, so cleaning up after ourselves was so important and as always the #PopeFamily came through! We enjoyed a record crowd and look forward to carrying that excitement into the 2019 Varsity-Youth programs this season. We have some new and exciting elements that we will be adding to the game day experience that includes a tailgating zone, more involvement with band, cheer and the crowd, a new team intro, new culinary options, and the ability to take credit cards for your convenience! We look forward to seeing your support at our first home game against Lassiter Friday August 30th, 2019. GO POPE!
Friday May 17th, 2019 @ Pope Greyhound Stadium
