The Herricks community showed its pride during the 2016 homecoming weekend, which featured an “Honoring America” theme.
As in past years, football players took homecoming as an opportunity to give back through charitable efforts. The team raised more than $1,800 in donations for the Stop Soldier Suicide organization by selling T-shirts during the week that led up to the festivities. Stop Soldier Suicide director Major Ian Fuller (US Army- Retired) visited from North Carolina to attend the game and participate in the opening coin flip. He was joined by Frank Wirth and Aaron Kim, Herricks High School alumni who have provided military service.
