Hound Football Backers launch #FlyTheFlagFriday

MARYVILLE, Mo.— The Spoofhound Football Backers recently announced the launch of #FlyTheFlagFriday.

#FlyTheFlagFriday is a community flag program that will directly support the Maryville High School football team with monetary funds and school spirit.

“Seeing all those green flags flying on game days will be such a special thing for our players and for our community,” said Matt Webb, R-II head football coach. “It’s a great way to show support for Maryville and will be a nice way to bring us all together after a really tough year.”

Maryville residents and businesses can support the football team on #FlyTheFlagFridays with a one-time investment of $60. According to a news release, the cost includes a limited edition Spoofhound football flag and a flagpole, for those who need one.

The group encourages all community members to participate, especially those with businesses and homes on the way to the high school football stadium. The press release noted this includes those who live and work on the routes past Maryville Middle School and the South Munn high school entrance.

“When visitors drive into Maryville for a Friday night football game or a Saturday playoff game at the Hound Pound we want to line the streets with Spoofhound flags,” Webb said. “We want people to see and to recognize that we’re proud of our Spoofhounds, that we’re proud of their commitment, their hard work and their positive role in our community. We are calling each game day a #FlyTheFlagFriday.”
