One may think that when you show up to a football game you’re just going to be watching the game, however , however, for a Cherokee Trail football game, that’s just not the case. A typical football game at Cherokee Trail High School is a social evernt. Many of the students socialize until the chanting starts, which is a big part of the fun. Games usually turn out to be half about watching the athletes play and half about cheering as loud as you can. Ocassionally, CT’s own mini poms performs during half-time, practicing their dances on the sidelines before the performance. While mini poms is practicing, the croud is shouting, and encouraging our team and having a ton of fun. When cheer gives the crowd their “CTHS” signs, it is another way of supporting our team and getting the crowd to get rowdy. If you are a person who wants to watch the game rather than socialize, CT’s student section is not the place for you. Sudent’s chant and cheer at the top of their lungs all four quarters no matter the score of the game. So the next time you’re looking for something to do on a friday night, put on some CT gear and come cheer on your CT cougars.
