Military Appreciation Night
Friday, September 30
Prior to the football game, from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM, Creekside will host a community tailgate and festival event. This event will be held on campus (south of the portables) and will include music, food, and games with activities featuring the Armed Forces and area businesses. Additionally, both schools will be collecting donations for the USO in order to prepare care packages for our deployed military.
Following the tailgate event, fans will move into the stadium where there will be a special recognition of our military guests, including our official game honoree, WWII veteran, Mr. Jim Snellen. In addition, Mr. Brennan Asplen, Deputy Superintendent of St. Johns County School District, will participate in the coin toss ceremony. The “Power of Creekside Band” combined with the “Spirit of Bartram Band” will perform the National Anthem while the BTHS Air Force JROTC presents the flag and colors. The two bands feature nearly 500 members and will put on a show you will not want to miss! During the game, concessions will be available with hamburgers, hotdogs, nachos, Chick-fil-A sandwiches, and more.
Creekside will host a Military VIP area in the east end-zone where refreshments will be served, compliments of our local Chick-fil-A. All Military guests and their families are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating closest to the action!
Attending and participating in the tailgate festivities is FREE. Tickets to the game are $7.00/under 6 are free. Active military and veterans with military ID will be admitted FREE into the game and into the VIP area.
Tailgate festivities are from 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM and kickoff is 7:00 PM. All District rules and policies apply. No alcohol, weapons, or tobacco will be permitted on campus.
Eric Frank Named Coach of the Year
Eric Frank has been named the 2015-16 Creekside High School Coach of the Year. Coach Frank is the Head Boys Cross Country Coach and Director of Creekside’s Track Program. Last year he coached the 2015 Boys Cross Country Team to win the 3A State Championship. In fact, they were the first Boys Cross Country Team to capture a state title in St. Johns County history.
