The Prep cheering section regularly gathers at halftime to reenact a scene from Braveheart in which the assembled warriors are encouraged to overthrow tyranny.

The last time I witnessed a Prep football victory was against Roman Catholic High School in 1958! It was a close game not decided until the final seconds.
The opening game of the 2008 season provided similar excitement. The Prep team took on highly rated Parkland, a school near Allentown, PA famed for its Friday Night Lights. After Parkland went out to a 10-0 lead, the Prep scored two touchdowns and two field goals while holding its opponent to a field goal.
