  In celebration of community service rendered and platoon points earned through other various activities ranging from academic grades to increases in weight room performances, the winning platoons and highest point-getters enjoyed steak, potatoes, chips, and watermelon at coach Grebin's house. A very large, team-engineered bonfire was ignited for roasting marshmallows. The entire varsity football team joined later for some s'mores and a few games in the backyard. There were still enough coals to roast marshmallows Sunday afternoon and a few fun memories that will last.
