PORTLAND, Ore. — Friday nights in the Metro League are not only a battle on the field between football teams, but off the field, as well, between student sections.
But this Friday night was different.
What started as a social media push for Sunset students to wear purple, or “purple out,” at the Apollos game Friday night at Beaverton, launched into a calling for the community to come together to honor Nathalie.
Twitter accounts associated with all eight schools in the Metro League (Sunset, Jesuit, Beaverton, Westview, Southridge, Aloha, Glencoe, Century) asked students to wear purple Friday night in Nathalie’s memory.
And for one night, all the schools in the Metro League were on one team. For Nathalie.
