Recently, Matt Graeff, the middle linebacker for the team, was diagnosed with cancer and will miss the season while he fights and recovers.
Graeff is currently undergoing chemotherapy and acted as the guest barber Aug. 15 as the team came together to rally for him and shave their heads.
The coaches welcomed Graeff as a coach but wished he were on the field with his fellow teammates.
According to the coaching staff at Mammoth High School, this season will be dedicated to him.
Support the Mammoth Huskies and Graeff on Friday, Aug 24, at the Gault/McClure stadium.
The Mammoth High School Football team has been working hard in preparation for its first game Aug. 24 against the Whittier Christian Heralds. The game is at the Gault/McClure stadium and will be a great test for the Huskies to open the season.
Junior Varsity begins at 4:30 p.m. with Varsity at 7 p.m.
