At last, the days of remote learning and switched-up sports seasons are finally gone! And what better way to get back to the swing of normal high school and rally our DGN pride than a classic Friday night football game? 

Friday night lights are just around the corner, with the Trojans kicking off the season in a home game against Hoffman Estates Aug. 27. To celebrate their return to Carstens Field and fundraise for the programs, the cheerleading and football teams will be selling “Friday Night Lights” shirts for $14. 

These shirts can be purchased online on the D99 Webstore through Aug. 11 and will be available for pickup the week of Aug. 22. Pickup dates and times will be emailed to those who purchase a shirt. 

School spirit never takes a vacation, so put on your purple and get ready to show some DGN pride! Purchase your shirt online and get ready to pack the stands this football season.
