As their season is coming to an end, the football team has began to fundraise for a new scoreboard. On Friday, Nov.6 the Saegertown Football Boosters will hold a fundraiser for a new scoreboard. Starting at 6 p.m. the coaching staff will be duct taped to the goalpost. For $3.00 for 1 ½ feet or $5.00 for a yard, students can tape the coaches.
“We actually got this idea from Ethan Hayes. He’s a junior high player and when he saw that the elementary school did a fundraiser taping their principal, he thought it would be a great idea to do for a new scoreboard,” said Treasurer Margo Kralj.
Students and staff are looking forward to the fundraiser. “It’ll be hilarious, and I think it will bring in a lot of money,” football manager Daynna English said.
Varsity coach Adam Horne is nervous for the event, but is willing to participate. Everyone involved in the football program is looking forward to this event and hopes that there will be a good turn out. A new scoreboard costs about $8,000-25,000, so fundraising will be the most important step.
“All the money raised will be going towards the scoreboard,” said Kralj.
