School spirit can be contagious. Blount Today High School Pep Rallys on the Patio are proof of that.
The first pep rally was held Sept. 9 at Aubrey’s and featured Heritage High School. The second pep rally will be Thursday, Oct. 14, at Aubrey’s and features Maryville High School. Alcoa and William Blount will also have pep rallies before the season ends.
The school participation for Heritage included the marching band members, cheerleaders, students and teachers cheering on their football players and enjoying specials from the restaurant. Blount Today News and Sports on Knox ivi stream the pep rallies live. They are also archived on Knox ivi for viewing later.
Aubrey’s manager Jody Slimp had barbecue sandwich dinners complete with all the sides prepared for those celebrating outside with their team. Voices of Blount Today Sports Radio Marty Millsaps and Joe Lambert interviewed coaches and students for the Knox ivi webcast. Blount Today photographer Leslie Karnowski was on hand and captured these images.
