SB St. Joseph wins Friday Night Football Pep Rally

With 67 percent of the vote, St. Joseph High School in South Bend won our next Friday Night Football Pep Rally.

This means we'll be live at St. Joseph on 16 Morning News this Wednesday for a pep rally, since there will be no classes on Friday. At the pep rally, students can showcase all the great things about their school.

We'll also be back live Friday night right before the lights go on as we preview the Holy War matchup with Marian.

Riley hosting Adams came in second with 25 percent of the votes, and Wawasee finished third with seven percent.
