At the beginning of every school year, all the fall sports of Parkway Central showcase their talent and teams on Red and White night. On Aug. 17, the varsity level sports scrimmaged in front of family and fans to show off the new teams and the night ended with the annual football jamboree. The tradition has been going on for countless fall seasons and is always seen as an important part of year.

“I’ve been here for over 25 years and can’t ever remember not having it,” Athletic Director John Theobald said.

For the students, Red and White night is key part of student life. Many of the athletes see it as a night to work together and create goals for the team. Senior Camden Dunne is one of the captains of varsity soccer team and hopes to bring good leadership to the team this year.

“A lot of people are going to have nerves early on in the season and it’s just a matter of getting them back into things, just calming them down, and performing well,” Dunne said.
