Pep Rally Friday: G.A.R Memorial High School

WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)- Today's Pep Rally Friday paid a visit to Luzerne County.

Eyewitness News caught up with the G.A.R. Grenadiers to learn how they're preparing for the big game.

It's a cross-town rivalry as G.A.R. High School is getting ready to take on Myers. Bragging rights are on the line!

"It's my last year and we beat Myers and that's always been a tradition," says senior Diamond Currie.

The band is pumped too. Their numbers may be small, but their sound mighty.

"I love music. Music everyday, every night," says sophomore Tim Wielgopolski. "Love playing the drums, that's what I do and it's fun for me."

And off the field, the school is using the month of October to give back.

"We've been doing it since my seventh grade, so that's about five years," says Key Club President Mikayla Andrzejski. "We have a Pink Out and make shirts and all the money we sell from the shirts go to a breast cancer organization."

Raising money, while still taking the time to get down before the big game. And for some, even a sweet victory on the field isn't as sweet at throwing pie at a teachers face.

"Since seventh grade, ever since I've met Mr. Evanko," says junior Peter Genao. "It felt so good, I got everything out right there."
