Everyone began screaming with excitement when the music came on and athletes, teachers and other student leaders began dancing in the gym Sept. 27. Hands clapping all around with shouts and cheers when it became obvious, that this, was indeed a pep rally dance battle at the Western-themed pep rally.

Football players Jordan Murphy, Dillon Deere, Mason Swanson, Jerry Okonkwo, and more thrilled the audience as they moved their bodies to popular dance songs. They were up against cheerleaders, Sapphires and teachers. From old school classics like YMCA to the infamous Cha Cha Slide to the latest challenge, In My Feelings by Drake, aka Kiki, the students and staff showed up to show off their dancing talents.

“The experience was really fun and I loved being around all my peers,” said Murphy. “My favorite part of the pep rally dancing was Jerry. I would definitely do this again.”

Dance teacher Mrs. Stephanie Jackson and social studies teacher Mr. Levi Turner stole the show when their groups performed. Jackson’s group danced to the songs Shoot, In My Feelings and Hit the Quan.  

“It was fun and I enjoyed being around the students,” said Mrs. Jackson. “I would do it again and be prepared. I think it was a good idea to bring the teachers in.”

Mr. Turner was a member of the winning team. He scored lots of cheers from the student body when he and his team danced to Pretty Boy Swag.

“Winning is everything, but I ended up very sore,” Mr.Turner said. “Working with a team was great and I couldn’t have won without their talent.”

This was the second pep rally of the year, also the second Thursday night game of the year.

The varsity football team fell to West Mesquite 55-36.
