Game day traditions: We practice as a team prior to (football) games and after practice, our parents prepare a team dinner for us. Eating dinner together as a team and getting ready together in our studio is our FAVORITE part of Friday Night Lights. This year, we are looking forward to being more involved in the football games and doing some sideline dances in addition to our halftime routine. We love being part of the game and showing our Cougar Pride!
