Trinity High School star Trinees Hill, who recently made her debut with the Westlake High School squad, was one of the first athletes to arrive at Trinity’s football stadium for a team meeting.
Hill has become a regular visitor to the school and is known to be one of its most passionate and active fans.
She told the school newspaper last month that she has “been to many, many football games” in the area and has always been passionate about the sport.
“I’m a big believer in the game of football,” Hill said.
“There’s no doubt about it.”
Hill said she would also be joining the school’s football team if they were granted a bid for the state’s high school football championship next year.
The school has made it clear it will not be taking any bids for the football championship unless they meet the schools standards.
In October, Trinity’s athletics department announced a bid would not be accepted for the upcoming season.
Trinity’s new president, Roberta Tisdale, said the school has always supported the sport, and had “always had an open and positive relationship” with the school.
“Our priority has always and will always be to build on the legacy of Trinity High,” Tisdal said.
Hill said the prospect of playing in the state of Texas was “really exciting”.
“It’s not just a place to play but a place where I can go to school,” she said.
“I feel really at home here.
It’s going to be really fun.”
The Westlake team includes six players from Trinity and three from Hillcrest High School.
“We’ll have a very strong squad and a very good group of players,” Tedd said.
“I think it’s really important that the football community, Trinity High and the surrounding area, have confidence in the school.”
The Trinity High team will play at Trinity Park on Saturday (local time) to open the season.
