Payson High Football players help with "Dads and Doughnuts" event

On the morning of Wednesday, September 26th, some of our very own Payson High football players made a visit to Spring Lake Elementary school for their annual "Dads and Doughnuts" event. These players were able to substitute for the fathers that couldn't come, and spend time playing and eating donuts with the elementary students. The kids loved playing basketball and using the parachute with the football players.
