Whether you are a boy or a girl, as long as you are Jaguar with the desire to play football, PPCHS has the opportunity for you, next week there will be informational meetings for both the boys tackle football team and the girls flag football team. The boys’ tackle football meeting will be held Tuesday, November 22nd right after school at 2:10 PM, and the girls’ flag football meeting will be on Monday, November 21st right after school at 2:10 PM. Both of these meetings will be held inside the weight room. For those boys who will be on the tackle football team, there will be conditioning for the team after school Monday-Thursday from 2:15 to 3:15.
Junior Ashlyn Correa, who has been on the girls flag football team her entire high school career said, “I plan to play girls flag football for ppchs for my third year in a row. I’ve been captain since freshman year, and play multiple positions. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and continuing to play with some of my close friends. We have had a very talented and young team over the past two years, and I’m looking forward to see how much we’ve improved over the last year. One of our coaches passed away just a week ago. I know Coach V passing away will definitely push me, and hopefully a lot of the other players to play even harder than we’ve ever played. Many may think girls flag football is a joke and a sport just to play around with your friends, but it’s not. I, as well as most of the other players on the team, take this sport very seriously. I would recommend any girl to try out for flag football because it’s a great way to meet new friends and play a sport that is fun and competitive. We usually make it to the district finals, but come up short and end up with the 2nd place trophy, but not this year. I have no doubt this year’s team can get us the 1st place trophy and take us even further than we’ve ever been!”
These meetings will provide a good insight for many PPCHS boys and girls looking to get out there on the football field and compete for their school!
