NHS Athletics: Rockets Review

This week is "ThinkTaylor" Concussion Awareness Week in Massachusetts.  This is a movement started by former New England Revolution star, Taylor Twellman. This MIAA sponsored initiative aims to have players and coaches take the #TTPledge to "accept the fact that brain injuries are not something to be taken lightly - that they are not something to simply ignore, "shake off" or play through"  The ThinkTaylor campaign hopes to have players, coaches, administrators and fans to  wear orange this week in support of the cause.  "ThinkTaylor" is coming to this Saturday's  Bay State Conference / Catholic Conference Soccer Challenge at DeFazio Park with giveaways, prizes and more information!

Saturday was the annual NHS Booster Sticker Drive.  Rocket athletes from all seasons went all about town selling new stickers to help support the Booster Club! Below 93 members of the Boys and Girls Cross Country Team got ready to sell!
