High School Football Backs the Blue

A feeling of unity dominated a night of rivalry high school football on Wednesday at the Duchesne at Altamont football game. Both teams, cheerleaders, drill teams and Boy Scouts coordinated a special tribute night honoring the deputies of the Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office starting with dinner and followed by a halftime recognition show. “It was a sight to see at the beginning of halftime,” shares the Sheriff’s Office. “All of the players from both [teams], cheerleaders and students lined up forming a tunnel for deputies to run through. Leading the pack was Sheriff David Boren breaking through the poster dedicated to this night of law enforcement appreciation.” Students took turns sharing how they felt about the law enforcement protecting their communities. The Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office thanked all who were involved in putting the amazing tribute night together, especially the amazing young men and women of Duchesne and Altamont who know what it means to Back the Blue.
