Pius X football community featured by USA Football

A new promotional website featuring the football program at Pius X High School is live on the USA Football website.

The website features videos and photos taken during Homecoming week, leading up to, during and after the football game.

Pius X was one of two selected Nebraska schools – Grand Island High School is the other – nominated by the Nebraska State Coaches Association. Other schools from across the nation will be featured as well.

Players, coaches, parents, fans and alumni are encouraged to share their story on social media using the hashtag #poweroffootball.


Original Story

The tradition of the football program and community at Pius X High School will be featured in an upcoming promotion by USA Football.

Videographers have been interviewing coaches, students, a broadcaster, alumni and parents for its promotion, "The Power of Football."

Pius X was one of two selected Nebraska schools – Grand Island High School is the other – nominated by the Nebraska State Coaches Association. Other schools from across the nation will be featured as well.

The final result will be an assortment of photos and videos centered around tradition, brotherhood, community and individual moments. The website with the stories is scheduled to be launched in October.

"I didn’t realize there’s such a strong tradition," USA Football's Taylor Goff said about Pius X.

He and Jayy McClain have been able to see the program up-close through interviews and watching final preparations for tonight's Homecoming football game.

McClain said he's witnessed the student-athlete leadership on the team, citing the post-practice team prayer that was led by players.

"The team unity is crazy; we haven’t seen that (in other places)," he said. "Even in my football days, I’ve never seen a group of kids come together to pray, chant, the camaraderie."

USA Football, according to its website: "... believes in the passion, intensity, joy, confidence and sense of community football brings to those who play, coach and love it. From practice to playoffs, we work to make the game better and safer, ensuring that nothing stands in the way of a player’s excitement for the sport."
