NEW HALFTIME MUSIC — Please print!

We are pleased to announce our next halftime show:

AN AMERICAN TRIBUTE

  • THE OLYMPIC SPIRIT

    • We celebrate the unity, determination, and optimism of the Olympic Games!
  • A SALUTE TO AMERICA’S FINEST

    • We honor the men and women of the United States Military.  Veterans and currently enlisted members will be invited to stand as their branch is represented through music, and spelled out on the football field.
  • GOD BLESS THE USA

    • Written and recorded by country artist Lee Greenwood in 1984, this song has become one of America’s most well-known and beloved patriotic anthems.  The show will conclude with an uplifting surprise.
