Getting in the Zone

Everyone can agree that it’s important to get in the zone before any big event. Whether it’s a math test or a big game, we all have different things that get us ready. For the senior football players, it’s music. If you’ve ever been to a game at Gordon Straley Field, you know that when you pass by the locker room, you can hear the booming bass coming from the multiple speakers. The boys are in there jumping around, hyping each other up for the competition that’s about to go down. “I think it’s really important to get focused before the game,” said Gabriel Klinker, 12. “Music helps me get focused because it blocks out anything else that could be distracting me.”

I constructed a senior football playlist, putting together some of their favorite songs to listen to before games. Every senior chose one.
