Fantasy Football

Typically when we think of football we visualize a crowded stadium filled with screaming fans supporting their favorite team.  We think of high school football games and crazy student sections cheering for their school.  But rarely do we think of virtual football games where the stakes are just as high.

According to Poway High School Quarterback Coach Robert Sevier, “Fantasy Football has become and up and coming trend on the Poway high campus.”

Lately I have been walking around campus and rather than hearing kids rant about Charger results, they are deep into the results of their fantasy games.  Even kids that don’t play football have latched on the found fantasy trend,” Sevier explains.

The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is an association that comes to all schools to evaluate the way students are taught. They came six years ago, and now it is Poway High’s turn again. From Oct. 26 to Oct. 29, the visiting committee will be coming to school, evaluating classes and talking to staff, students, and parents.

WASC will not be here only on school days, but also on the weekend. They will have a meeting with the teachers to talk to them about what they saw during the days that they were at Poway High visiting the classrooms. They will also be giving recommendations to make school better.
