By: Cadence Peel and Alyssa Parker

Do you play football? Well at LMS we are big fans of football. With 8th and 7th grade boys and girls playing football we need a lot of school spirit. As a student at LMS we have showed a lot of spirit by pep rallies, signs, and more.

We interviewed a few of the eight grade football players and recorded their answers.

Fun football fact, On November 6, 1869, Rutgers and Princeton played what was billed as the first college football game. Also, Walter camp was the person who created football.
