Students celebrate touchdowns with purple powder, white shirts
Powder up: As part of the Friday night’s home football game, students in the cheer block celebrate each touchdown with a purple powder explosion. The Warriors won the game 23-14 against the Charlestown Pirates. The win marked the first win this season for the team.
When the game neared the end, Cole Atha (12) and Treyton Owens (12) made use of the leftover powder with one big pour.
“I wanted it dumped on me because I wanted to be purple,” Owens said. “I was planning it the whole night.”
Color powders have become popular after running events, festivals, and other celebrations have used the product.
After having a good portion of the 25 pound box of purple powder poured on his head, Owens turned purple.
“It took a few showers to get it out,” he said.
Last year, the cheer block used a pink color powder during the Pink Out game.
