LFHS Students Show Off Singing of School Songs

by Ronnie Zamora/LFCISD

A tradition has been brought back to Los Fresnos High School – students singing the Alma Mater and the Fight Song.

Students have been encouraged to show their school spirit by memorizing the words of both songs. The result has been impromptu singing in school halls.

LFHS head football coach and athletic director Patrick Brown also changed the post-game routine for the Falcons after varsity football games.

The routine was evident after Los Fresnos’ come-from-behind 28-27 victory over El Paso Montwood Aug. 30 at Leo Aguilar Memorial Stadium.

Victories and singing go hand-in-hand, and the Falcons showed off their talents.

After shaking hands with opposing players on the 50-yard line immediately after the conclusion of games, Falcon football players ran to the track in front of the LFHS band. They were joined by cheerleaders and other students on the track.

The Falcons will sing the Alma Mater after each game in front of the band. If the Falcons win the game, the Fight Song will follow. Video of the singing of the Fight Song can be found at this link.

The singing is reminiscent of a scene in the 1989 movie “Lean on Me” where principal Joe Clark played by actor Morgan Freeman encourages students to learn the Alma Mater.
