WARREN — Students in the Warren Woods Public Schools Physically or Otherwise Health Impaired, or POHI, program recently experienced what it’s like to be star athletes.

On the afternoon of Oct. 19, the Warren Woods Tower High School football field belonged to them as they participated in the district’s annual Victory Day event.

During the afternoon, the POHI students played football with members of the high school’s varsity and junior varsity football teams. This year, the athletes played in the district’s new stadium. The yearly event is designed to give the POHI students a chance to be part of the team. Coaches, cheerleaders, band members and volunteers came out to cheer on the entire group.

“For one afternoon, our football players interact and take part in helping our district students experience the joy of football,” WWPS School Board Vice President Mike Schulte stated in an email. “Students test their skills at different football stations set up on our football field ranging from passing to scoring a touchdown.”

For their participation, every student received a medal and a Victory Day T-shirt.
