Highland Park High School Varsity Football Game
On September 10, 2021 Naval Sea Cadet Division Unit 911 color guard team attended their very first event - Football Varsity game between Highland Park High School and Hoffman Estates High School.
Being very new to the team, SN Elise Burkut, SA Joseph Orloff, SA-T Cody Van Dermier, and League PO Eugene Burkut were able to practice before the game opening but were visibly nervous as they got ready to enter the field.
Meanwhile cadets Joseph and Daniel Proa held the post outside of the field ready to answer any questions about the unit and Naval Sea Cadet Corps..
"This will be the longest five minutes of their lives, but they will be incredibly proud of their achievement once they are finished," DIVO Brian Proa commented.
Despite being new, the team did a fantastic job and was complimented but the number of attendees.
Thank you to American Legion Highland Park Post 145, Lake County Navy League, and Highland Park High School for inviting out color guard to be a part of this incredible event.
