Our “old school” football program no longer has “old school” lockers thanks to the hard work of several supporters. PBS parent, Brad Joffrion, helped design the concept. Head Coach Jay Mayet, PBS Alum Eric Callendar and Brad Joffrion precut all of the wood. With those men in place, the additional help of PBS Alums Patrick Spikes and Kim Reid, and a few key parents helped make the installation possible. The before and after photos showcase the undertaking of this project that could not have been possible without the help of many.
