August 26, 2016 is a date that will forever be etched into the minds of the 100 students who braved a 4 AM wake up call to put on a show for Channel 2 News.

In order to get the entire community ready and willing to show up in force for the opening varsity football game against Kinkaid, the Eagle Guard led the earliest pep rally known to mankind on Friday. The rally served many purposes, one of which was to broadcast to the world what we have all known for years: that no one on earth possesses more school spirit than an Eagle.

Joined by cheerleaders from St. Agnes, IWA, and Duchesne, the loudest high school cheering section south of the Mason-Dixon line was rowdy as ever on Friday morning, making quite the impression on Chip Brewster, who commented on the Eagles’ level of commitment to show up in force so early in the morning during just the second week of school.

This pep rally is a good sign for both St. Thomas and our football program. It shows that the school spirit and deep sense of pride in our fellow Eagles has not faded with time, but, in fact, burns brighter than ever.
