The 1st annual student-staff football game was held recently pitting student athletes and cheer team members against teachers from San Diego High School. This was not a regular football game due to the possibility of injury. The contest was flag football in a passing league format where scoring was done more by passing than running and defense was more in blocking passes than rushing to sack the quarterback or stopping a running back. And absolutely no tackling was allowed.

In the end the staff beat the students 21-7.  According to George Harris, graduating senior and defensive lineman on the Caver football team, “The teachers were able to practice for a month and (students) just had one practice.” Maybe the students will have a chance for a comeback with a student vs. staff basketball game.
