DENVER — Christmas in August? Why not!?
9NEWS Prep Sports Reporter Scotty Gange is that excited for the upcoming football season!
Gange stopped by Grandview High School this week, where the Wolves' football squad is gearing up for the 2021 season. Fresh off two state track relay titles and an all-around Class 5A championship this past spring, the Wolves are feeling good... And fast.
Grandview also welcomed a new student from Alaska this year who's bringing a unique tradition to the team. Khan Shaw, who is proud of his Hawaiian heritage, has brought his Haka hype to Aurora. The Haka is a posture dance from the Māori culture.
"It means a lot to be accepted like that out here," Shaw said after leading his team in the dance on Monday.
Grandview will open the season on Thursday night, Aug. 26, at Pomona.
