COMMUNITY KICK OFF RALLY
The community kickoff rally will take place on the first Friday of football practice. The 2015 kickoff rally will include a youth skills session involving all members of the high school football team. Also, the second annual Eleva vs Strum game will take place during the rally.
ANNUAL ELEVA VS STRUM GAME
During the pre game, the Cardinal Football team walks through the home side of Cardinal Stadium prior to storming the field, Enter Sandman style. At halftime, the Cardinal Football players once again walk through the home side of Cardinal Stadium prior to re-entering the stadium. Both the pre game and halftime walks allow parents and fans to provide up close and personal encouragement for the players.
The Cardinal Football team has a sacred ritual that they perform every week at the end of the pre game practice and after each game. This ritual, known as "JUICING," is believed to help bring the Cardinals a little good luck on the football field.
While visiting Cardinal Stadium for a game fans will see something a little odd at most home games. In the south end zone they will observe a Revolutionary War soldier and his cannon. The cannon is shot throughout the game to signal a CARDINAL TOUCHDOWN and VICTORY.
