Let's see your support for both our Chieftains AND our military! ALL students will be admitted into the game FREE if you are decked out for the student section - it's red, white and blue and/or other military attire. See Mrs. Jury if you would like to be one of the presidents.
All veterans or active military soldiers will also be admitted to the game FREE. Please share the word with family and friends - we would like to honor these American heroes! Go CHIEFTAINS! #OhioStrong2018
