PHS Receives Golden Football As Part of NFL’s Super Bowl High School Honor Roll
Paris High School received a golden football from the NFL this month to commemorate the 50th year of the Super Bowl.
In an “initiative recognizing schools and communities that contributed to Super Bowl history and positively impacted the game of football,” as stated in an NFL press release, the NFL sent a golden Wilson football to the nearly 2,000 high schools around the country. They were sent to an athlete or head coach who has competed in a Super Bowl.
The NFL recognized nearly 3,000 players and head coaches as part of the newly formed Super Bowl High School Honor Roll. Paris High School’s own, Raymond Berry (Class of 1950), holds membership in this elite fraternity. Berry was the head coach of the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XX played on January 26, 1986, and that qualified the school for the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll.
Photographed with the golden football awarded to PHS, commemorating the 50th Super Bowl, are Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Steven Hohenberger, Principal Chris Vaughn, PHS senior football player Quez Allen, and Superintendent Paul Jones.
Due to weather conditions, all JV baseball games will be moved to Paris on the Hill on Saturday (Feb 27). The times will be 11:00 and 1:00
