CHS Students Take Powder Puff Football Underground

Posted:

It's that time of year for homecoming.

One of the traditions for many schools is Powder Puff football.

A tradition that Century put an end to -- when the games got too violent...

But students at Century High School have their own game plan and have taken the activity underground.

Steve Madler, Principal at CHS sent out a letter to parents to make them aware of the fights and alcohol use going on at this unsupervised event.

He says it's not out of the question that the school would consider bringing back Powder Puff but it would need to take a lot of self regulation from the students.

"You know that somebody is going to do something and so you're waiting to deliver a punishment and I'd rather find a different school activity that we're not there to find out who's going to cross that line and who's going to receive a consequence. We're there to celebrate and have fun in the spirit of the school," says Steve Madler, Principal, Century High School.

Century High School lacks the jurisdiction to prevent or control students at a non-school sponsored event.

Madler says the school offered to bring back Powder Puff if students follow the rules and expectations.

Students said the school could do this but they would still have their underground game anyway.
