The Christian Brothers Falcons Football team geared up for the annual Holy Bowl two Saturdays ago. With roaring fans cheering their hearts out for our boys, the sea of blue in the student section came alive.

As seen all over campus, the seniors got in touch with their inner painter. But what do the multi-colored overalls mean? In fact they don’t mean anything. The senior class, with the help of Falcon Force leaders Hailey Green (’18)  and Alex Silva (’18) wanted to get the class involved as a whole. The word was spread out and soon enough, the fun, vibrant white and blue overalls filled the student section.

“We came up with the idea of overalls at the Lasallian Student Leaders conference when we were brainstorming for new spirit ideas to unite our class as one cohesive whole,”  JR Aguirre (‘18) said.

The overalls were a way to get the seniors to match but in a way where they could express themselves through their own decorations. Each student was able to purchase their own style of overalls and decorate with any spirit decor they insisted upon. From shorts to long pants decorated with paint or just left plain, the senior class showed their spirit with artistic ability.

“I decorated my white overalls with red and blue ribbon, paint and bandannas, I put my name on my leg and added a few patches to personalize my overalls,” Emily Shepard (‘18) said as she showed off her fun overalls.

Vanessa Avila (’18) and Camilla Patterson (’18) took a different approach on the white overall trend.

“We wanted to still go with the white theme but with a twist. We choose to decorate old thrifted white jeans,” Camilla said. “I decided to decorate mine with checkerboard and flames to add some flare. I think our class is so spirited and supportive of each other so i’m glad that  we are able to come together with something fun like this. ”

Our last Holy Bowl was an overall success in that our students were able to support our boys passionately, while showing off their falcon pride for all of Sacramento to see.
