Dalton High School is excited to host its third annual D-Day Football Event at Harmon Field on May 13, starting with the Dalton High School Catamounts scrimmage at 9 a.m.
This event is the perfect opportunity to kick off the spring football training season and bring the community together for a day of fun and football.
D-Day will feature inter-squad scrimmages, including the Hammond Creek Middle School Tigers at 10:30 a.m. and the Dalton Junior High School Cougars at 12 p.m.
The event, sponsored by the Quarterback Club, is open to the entire community, and admission is free.
Director of Athletic Development and Facilities George Woods said D-Day promises to be a fun-filled day for families and football enthusiasts alike.
"It's important for the community to come support this so they can see the body of work that is going into our program," Woods said. "They get to see the whole landscape of the program."
In addition to the football scrimmages, there will be a free cookout with hot dogs, chips, and water.
There will also be Quarterback Club sign-ups, little-league football sign-ups, face painting, and spirit-wear for sale.
Dalton High School is proud to have a robust athletic program that not only enhances the physical and mental well-being of the students but also provides a sense of community and pride.
Dalton Catamounts Head Football Coach Kit Carpenter said this event is an opportunity for students, parents, and the community to come together to support their local school and foster a sense of unity.
"It's really a great time to fellowship, and to give the community opportunities to learn about our programs," Carpenter said. "It's an exciting time. Come on out, and celebrate the kids and the work they are doing."
