AN ARREST, CALL CRIMESTOPPERS AT 1-800-SPEAK-UP. ? Rhonda: YOU KNOW, WE HAVE FRIDAY FOOTBALL FRENZY EVERY FRIDAY FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL SEASON. BUT THIS IS THE PEP RALLY OF ALL PEP RALLIES TO KICK THINGS OFF IN DEARBORN. Evrod: ASHLEE IS LIVE AT DEARBORN DIVINE CHILD. AND YOU HAVE A FRIEND WITH YOU THERE. Ashlee: I HAVE THE FALCON. THEY HAVE FALCON FEVER. IT'S THE FIRST FRIDAY FOOTBALL FRENZY OF THE SEASON AND THEY'RE GETTING READY TO TAKE ON DETROIT CONSORTIUM, AND IT'S ONE BIG DANCE PARTY. WE HAVE THE CUPID SHUFFLE GOING ON. AND TWEET US AND USE THE ASHTAG AND WE'LL USE SOME OF YOUR COMMENTS ON AIR. THESE KIDS GOT UP AT 4 A.M. THEY WERE WAITING OUTSIDE THE DOORS WHEN WE ARRIVED. ALL FOR FRIDAY FOOTBALL FRENZY. THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE SCHOOL TODAY. BUT THEY WANT YOU TO GET PUMPED, TOO. WE'LL BRING YOU MORE 4 FRENZY THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE SHOW. Rhonda: THAT'S SO AWESOME! DOESN'T IT MAKE YOU MISS HIGH SCHOOL? THINK ABOUT HOW EXCITED THEY ARE TO SEE ALL OF THEIR FRIENDS ? Rhonda: HIGH SCHOOL KICKS OFF TONIGHT AND IT'S OUR FRIDAY FOOTBALL FRENZY. TONIGHT, THE DETROIT CONSORTIUM COUGARS WILL TAKE ON THE DEARBORN DIVINE CHILD FALCONS. Evrod: IT'S OUR FIRST FRIDAY FOOTBALL FRENZY OF THE YEAR. ASHLEE, YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE THAT HAVE SCHOOL SPIRIT. Ashlee: THE KEY PLAYERS WHEN IT COMES TO HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL. FIRST, I NEED TO TALK TO COACH. WE HAVE AN IMPORTANT GAME TONIGHT AGAINST DETROIT CONSORTIUM. COACH ROB, TELL ME WHAT YOU'VE BEEN DOING TO PREPARE FOR THE GAME? OUR GUYS HAVE HAD A GREAT SUMMER, GREAT AUGUST, GREAT OFF-SEASON. WE PLAYED WELL. BUT YOU HAVE TO PROVE IT WHEN IT COUNTS, AND THAT'S TONIGHT. A VICTORY TONIGHT WOULD SET THE TONE FOR THE WHOLE SEASON. Ashlee: YOU BEAT THEM LAST YEAR AND YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN THIS YEAR. YOU HAVE A SPECIAL PLAYER, AND LET'S TALK TO YOU ABOUT WHAT MAKES HIM SO SPECIAL TO YOUR TEAM? GENE KNOW PLAYS WITH A LOT OF ENERGY AND ENTHUSIASM. TO US, HE'S JUST A FOOTBALL PLAYER. HE PLAYS HARD, A GREAT GUY TO HAVE ON THE TEAM AND A GREAT TEAMMATE. Ashlee: GENE KNOW HAS ONE ARM. AND DO YOU THINK THIS HAS BEEN MORE OF A DISABILITY OR DO YOU THINK IT'S BROUGHT YOU EXTRA EDGE TO YOUR GAME? EXTRA EDGE. I HAVE TO GO OUT AND COMPETE HARDER THAN EVERYONE ELSE. Ashlee: SO WHAT'S YOUR MESSAGE TO OTHERS WHO THINK THEY COULDN'T PLAY IN THAT SITUATION? FOLLOW THEIR DREAMS. DON'T LET ANYONE TELL YOU, YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING. Ashlee: DO YOU WANT TO GIVE A BIG CHEER FOR GENO? [CHEERING] Ashlee: AND BACK TO YOU IN THE STUDIO, AND A PEP RALLY IN LESS THEN TEN MINUTES. Rhonda: WE HAVE OUR THUNDER STICKS OUT. AND WE WANT TO WISH DEARBORN DIVINE CHILD GOOD LUCK AND DETROIT CONSORTIUM GOOD LUCK, AS WELL. Brandon: AND THEY'RE CARRYING ON THE CONVERSATIONS WITH THIS MORNING'S ASHTAG. Evrod: UH-OH! AND WE SAW THE GORILLA GOT THE BANANA. Rhonda: ASHLEE, IT'S BEEN A BLAST! THE KIDS CAME OUT IN FULL FORCE. IT HAS TO BE GREAT FOR THEM TO SEE THEIR FRIENDS FOR THE FIRST TIME AS WE GEAR UP FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR. Ashlee: ABSOLUTELY. THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE SCHOOL TODAY. THEY CAME OUT FROM 47 ZIP CODES! IT'S 47 ZIP CODES THAT COME TO THIS PRIVATE SCHOOL. AND THEY HELPED BRING IN 60,000-PLUS VOTES. AND SOMETHING TO SHOW YOU AT THE END OF THE SHOW. Rhonda: WE LOOK FORWARD TO IT. IT'S INCREDIBLE! AND WE'LL BE ANNOUNCING THE NEXT TEAMS THAT ARE NOMINATED FOR NEXT WEEK. SO STICK AROUND FOR THAT. AND JOIN US TONIGHT FOLLOWING ZOOMING BY, NO MAJOR DELAYS. GET YOUR MORNING DRIVE STARTED! BACK OUT TO DEARBORN FOR OUR FIRST FRIDAY FOOTBALL FRENZY HIGH SCHOOL GAME OF THE WEEK PEP RALLY. Evrod: THIS WILL BE A SERIOUS MATCH-UP. ASHLEE IS LIVE AT DEARBORN DIVINE CHILD WHERE THE FALCONS HAVE BROUGHT THE ENERGY EARLY. THEY WERE LINING UP BEFORE THE DOORS EVEN OPENED. Ashlee: I PULLED UP AT 4 A.M. AND KIDS WERE WAITING TO GET IN. I'M VOUPDED BY THE FOOTBALL PLAYERS, THE CHEERLEADERS, AND THE DANCERS. ROB WAS A SENIOR LAST YEAR, AND HE'S NOT A FIFTH YEAR SENIOR, BUT YOU CAME BACK BECAUSE YOU'RE A LEGACY HERE. YOU ONCE PLAYED FOOTBALL AND THEN TOLD THAT YOU COULDN'T. AND WHY WAS THAT? WHEN I WAS IN SEVENTH GRADE, I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH BONE CANCER. THEY DID A STORY ON IT LAST YEAR, SO AFTER BEING DIAGNOSED WITH BONE CANCER AND NOT BEING ABLE TO PLAY SPORTS, I HAD TO FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO FILL THE GAP. WITH THAT, I BECAME WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE RED MAN HERE AND THE LEADER OF THE STUDENT SECTION. BUT NOW THAT THAT'S GONE, I'VE DECIDED TO PASS MY TORCH ON TO SOMEBODY. Ashlee: AND YOU'RE A FIVE-YEAR SURVIVORS? YES. Ashlee: AND HE SAID HE PASSED THE TORCH. SO LET'S GO TO THE OTHER RED MAN WHO WILL KICK OFF THE PEP RALLY WITH THE ROLLER COASTER. SO TAKE IT AWAY, KIDS! [CHEERING] [CHEERING] [CHEERING] [CHANTING] Ashlee: DEARBORN DIVINE CHILD VERSUS DETROIT CONSORTIUM TONIGHT, IT'S FRIDAY FOOTBALL SEASON! [CHEERING] ? ? Rhonda: WE ARE INTO IT. Evrod: I THINK WE'RE LEARNING A NEW CHEER HERE. IS THAT THE ROLLER COASTER. HO, HO, HO. Rhonda: THANKS TO ALL WHO MADE IT A LOAD OF FUN. ASHLEE OUT THERE WITH THE CREW DOING AN AWESOME JOB. WE HAVE A NEW TOY THIS YEAR AND HOPEFULLY WE DIDN'T ANNOY YOU TOO MUCH. Evrod: SORRY ABOUT THAT! YOU'RE WIDE AWAKE NOW! Rhonda: WE HAVE TO GET READY FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL SEASON SOMEHOW. AFS HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADER AND I USED TO LOVE THIS STUFF. IF YOU'RE WONDERING WHO WILL BE THE NEXT WEEK PEP RALLY HOST, THE NOMINEES: Evrod: GO TO CLICKONDETROIT.COM AND CAST YOUR VOTES.
