During the last school year, students indicated an interest for more promotions and prizes as an incentive to bring more attendants to our home sports games. As a result, The Kick for Cash event was created. Collinsville students in grades 7-12 may enter the contest by signing in at The Panther Shop tent or the PTO concession stand before home varsity football games. From those that sign up, one female and one male student will be selected to go out on the football field during halftime to kick a field goal. The distance of the kick depends upon the age and size of the kicker. The amount of the prize money, this time, was $50 dollars.
Last Friday, October 27th, the Kick for Cash sponsor was Dekalb Masonic Lodge. Of the all participants who signed up, Shyanne George and Jacob Niles were the lucky names drawn. The two took their turns kicking from the goal line. Jacob Niles was the lucky winner of the Kick for Cash at the game against North Sand Mountain.
