Attention! Students of PHS, we have the ability to bring others to victory. Students at Payson High School have been victorious in many sports for several years, and every time there is always a picture perfect crowd of students whooping, cheering, and supporting our teams. We need to understand that we play a part in every event when we, as classmates, support one another. In the end we create something beautiful: we become one.

Payson High has numerous sports that are not supported as much as they should be. We need to fix it, and we can. As a student body, we should make a goal this new year of 2018 to go to our less supported sports games, matches, and events. Sometimes we aren’t in the mood or have bad days, but everyone does. The students who participate in sports have sad, unhappy, and bad days, which sometimes lineup with there game days, but they still have to bring their absolute best when they have to play.

 

So go out of your way to create a fantastic foundation to start supporting a great game. You can help influence our schools worth. If you think we're going to lose or not succeed you’re feeding that bad energy. Everyone can change and this is the year to do it. All of the students who are new and don’t know what to do, come to the games and learn how to become a Payson lion by following in the footsteps of those who have complete school spirit. Forget about all the worries of how you look or how others think you look, for if you do, you will be showing school spirit and make Payson High School such a positive place. Become the change that payson needs and go out and support our students for good.
