Paradise Turns To Football To Heal After Camp Fire

PARADISE, Calif. (AP) – The Paradise High School football team is set to play its fist game since the Camp Fire destroyed much of the Town of Paradise. The Paradise High School Bobcats are scheduled to play Williams High School on Friday. It’s their first time back since the fire destroyed nearly 19,000 buildings and killed 86 people in November 2018. Head Coach Rick Prinz said the team has 35 players, down from 56 last year as the school has lost nearly half of its students who were forced to move away. School officials said they expect about 5,000 people to attend the game. The team will enter the field through the home stands, led by last year’s seniors who never got to play in their final game.
