Win or lose, Page High School’s student section stays with the football team.
One of the smaller schools in the Williamson County Schools system, Page’s Patriots have created a tight knit group in the bleachers on Friday nights. Between the decorated overalls and myriad of cheers, Page students always find a way to cheer its team on in either a nail-biting victory or blowout.
The student section started growing in 2014 when the seniors made a Twitter account to keep everyone updated and involved.
“We like to stick to tradition; for example, our first home game is always a Patriot out,” senior Vincent Ha said. “We like to tie in our themes to any holiday or special event. We could do like ‘red out’ for Moses to split the Red Sea or ‘costume out’ for Halloween. We practice cheers with our freshman class early in the year so they have an idea of what’s going down.”
Ha said it’s not a club – more of a whole school extracurricular activity that anyone and everyone can participate in.
He became the student section leader by the previous section leader, the same way he will hand it down to next year’s senior class.
“We like to lead by example by being dressed out in that week’s theme at school and doing the ‘I Believe’ chant at school and just being hype guy the whole day,” Ha said. “Furthermore, we like to have a good time, and if the section is having a good time, they will tell their friends to come.”
