CHESTER SMITH. Sports Editor

Every year hundreds of kids walk around the track at Poway High School and welcome the Poway Titans to the field prior to the football game. Poway’s annual Pop Warner Night is set to take place on Friday, September 12 when the Titans take on El Camino. On this night, young football players in the Poway Pop Warner program get to walk in front of a crowd of cheering fans and high five the Varsity football players as they run out onto the field before the game.

“This has been going on for longer than I’ve been here and has always been a great experience for these kids,” said athletic director and head football coach Damian Gonzalez.

Qualified seniors should contact Traci Barker-Ball in student services.

These scholarships cover two 5×7 and eight wallet photos that students will be able to share with their children in years to come.

The quarterback drops back looking for an open player, and just as the ball leaves the security of his hand, the quarterback is sacked.  The football spirals through the air and lands in the hands of the receiver as he crosses the line into the end zone.  The crowd goes wild and pool noodles wave violently through the air. Every team dreams to start off their season this way and Poway High Football team definitely left a lasting impression on Friday, August 29th marking a strong start to this year’s season.

“We were projected to lose this game and I’m really proud we hung on at the end to get the result,” senior starter, Jared Turnage explains.
