“Black-out is by far my favorite pep rally,” junior and spirit leader Landon Bownds said. “There is so much more prep and equipment that goes into it than the others, and that simply makes it better.”

“I love being a spirit leader because of all the hype moments, like black-out pep rally or rushing the field after beating Allen,” junior and spirit leader Landon Bownds said. “I feel like we as a PHS student body have gotten a little more school pride this year, so to see that is honestly my favorite part of it.”

“I am definitely going to miss pep rallies now that they are over,” senior Talonette Paige Hursman said. “I love being able to get the student body together and hyped up before games because it brings another level of energy, and it’s so fun.”

“Black-out is definitely my favorite type of pep rally,” senior Talonette Paige Hursman said. “The lights are so cool, and it just makes everything 10 times better.”

“My favorite part about pep rallies are when the students all stand and cheer,” senior Talonette Paige Hursman said. “It gives me the motivation to go and perform, and it makes the atmosphere so much more lively.”
