Hundreds of Memorial High students rallied in the school Dining Hall Friday morning to show their support for the Mavericks football team, which plays at Deer Park tonight in a key District 22-5A contest.
With football players cheering them on, students and faculty wore their "Mistakes Happen" T-shirts. The shirts were Memorial's response to shirts sold at Deek Park that warned of the "mistakes" awaiting any team thinking it could win at the Deer's home stadium.
