School’s out for summer but being a Gladiator is year-round, especially when giving back to the local community.

On Friday, June 30, varsity football players took a break from practice to help set up for Great American Weekend being held in the village of Goshen July 1 and 2. Nearly all players on the varsity team were in attendance.

“We’ve been practicing really hard the past few weeks and some of our guys are tired and sore, but it is nice to that they are as committed to giving back to the community as they are to the Athletics Department,” said Head Coach Ed Killenberger.

Matt O’Brien, began his duties as Athletic Director/Assistant Principal at Goshen High School on July 1, was in attendance as well. “I can’t describe how proud I am that these young men understand the importance of servicing the community that they are lucky to call home,” he said.

Moving forward, O’Brien plans a big push for community service among Goshen’s student-athletes. “We need to make sure that we give back to the community that has continually supported our students throughout the years,” he said.
