Community Spirit High for Playoffs

As the Covington High Lions went into Friday night’s semifinals football contest with Parkway, the entire community was behind them. Signs were put up throughout the city, a community pep rally was held Wednesday night, and football players, cheerleaders, band members, mascot and other students visited Pitcher Junior High, Covington Elementary and Folsom Elementary Friday.

The feeder schools hosted “Blue and Gold Day” to show their support for the Lions as they vie for the 2013 Class 5A title. To view photographs from the CHS Spirit Day Activities, click here. Local businesses painted good luck messages on their windows throughout the downtown area, and residents put signs in their yards.

Newspaper articles were plentiful about the match, especially with Lions Coach Greg Salter, the grandson of legendary coach Jack Salter, carrying on a family tradition to get the team into the playoffs.

Covington High had a lot of momentum coming into the game, with an entire year of celebrating the school’s Centennial , dedicating the new Bell Tower and memorial plaza bringing back memories for thousands of alumni in Covington and around the nation.

“Football is a deep-rooted tradition in the Covington community,” said Superintendent W. L. “Trey” Folse. “The playoff games have been a great way for the whole community to come together to support the team and school.”
