Athletes mimic coaches at kickoff pep rally PDF Print E-mail



Part of last Thursday’s Longhorn pep rally kicking off the fall sports season included comments from the “coaches.” Most years, the actual head coaches offer their comments at the pep rally, but this year, students provided comedic portrayals as they were interviewed by the cheerleaders. At left, Paula Leibbrandt as Coach Jodie Schuller gives cheerleaders Jenna Schilke and Michaela Ketter an insight into this year’s volleyball team. Below, left, Tyler Talbott in a red wig discusses the cross country opener as Coach Carl Zuege, and at right, Grant Lenners impersonates his dad, Head Football Coach Dan Lenners, talking about the opener last Friday. All three “real” coaches enjoyed the moment in the bleachers. (Republican photos)
