Powder Puff Revived

After rumors of the cancellation of the annual junior-senior Powder Puff football game have circulated through the halls of Cedar Park, clarity has finally been reached. According to Student Council President Bailey Todd, Powder Puff is returning this year with a few changes.

In the past, Powder Puff has been a chance for juniors and seniors to take a break from the stress of school to engage in a fun, and always competitive, game of touch football. The game is normally coached by upperclassmen football players and played by upperclassmen girls, making the event somewhat of a comedy. The two classes are pitted against each other and each year the same question arises: Who will come out on top- the juniors or seniors?

After a very competitive game last year, the school has made some changes to the 2013 game. This year there will be a set of teacher coaches for each team, referees, and everyone participating will sign a behavioral contract. The upperclassmen football players will also be performing at halftime, a new addition to the Powder Puff festivities.

“We are trying to make it into a big family event,” Todd said.

The date and location of the 2013 Powder Puff game has not been verified, but one thing is for sure: it will be a night of hilarity and carefree football.
