Many people in the tri-school community have been wondering about what Serra is doing about their football season. With both college and professional football starting up, what does that mean for high school football?

The Catalyst talked to Dominic Barsi, a senior on the Serra varsity football team and Katie Spencer, a junior on the NDB Spirit Squad.

“Due to COVID-19 and the wildfires in California, a lot of our practice time has been cut off,” said Barsi. “As a team, we have used as many opportunities as possible to get ready for our season mentally and physically. We’ve utilized Zoom calls for meetings, watching film, and chapel [a private bonding event for the team].”

He seems very hopeful looking at the upcoming season and wanted to shout out the NDB cheerleaders for always supporting them. The cheerleaders here at NDB are a big part of the Serra football program.

“I’m hoping that we will be able to cheer the football players on and be there to see them play,” said Spencer. “Our team is very prepared and has trained the new incoming freshman so that they will be prepared for games, whenever they start.”

The cheerleaders and fans are ready to cheer on the Padres when the time comes that they are able to.
