The dictionary defines a hero, as being “admired for achievement and noble quality” is the definition of a hero and on Friday, September 16, 2016 the Washington High School Demon Football team will recognize and honor the heroes of our community. On Thursday, September 15, 2016 the team will gather at the Washington High School to share a fellowship meal before Friday night’s game. We would like to invite anyone who is a veteran, current military, reserves, law enforcement, medical and rescue services and any other people who serve our community in the area of being a public servant to dinner on that evening. The meal is by RSVP only and reservations must be made by Friday, September 9th. Friday night activities will start with a Heroes Caravan beginning at Washington High School at 4:30. All local heroes are encouraged to join this caravan either by personal vehicle or by service vehicle. The evening at Case Field welcomes any heroes who are physically able to join the football players on the field for warm-up. If you are not able, we encourage you to watch and cheer on your fellow heroes and the players as they prepare for an exciting evening of football. Following warm-ups all heroes are invited to the Demon locker room for the pre-game talk with head coach Garrison Carter. Next, all heroes will line up on the five yard line to prepare for the Demon Football team to take the field and for the band to play the National Anthem.
