What used to be a Friday night tradition for many students has become a thing of the past. If it weren’t for homecoming, many students there wouldn't be so much extra support to cheer on the football team.

They say all that school spirit is showing up in some illegal activities. Students say their peers are getting hooked on alcohol and partying, not school activities.

East High School parents say the worry that there's not enough for teenagers to do. So they've been trying to bring even more activities to football games hoping to bring back the school spirit.
