As the homecoming parade came to an end, a large crowd gathered on the practice football field north of De Soto High School for the school's fifth-annual Spirit Rally for Homecoming on Thursday, Sept. 22. To the pep music of the DHS band and the leadership of the cheerleading squad and dance team, DHS students, athletes and community members set the mood for Friday's Homecoming game against Eudora.

After promising to bring energy to the field during Friday's game against Eudora, Byers asked that everyone in the crowd come out and "be loud and proud to be a Wildcat."

In addition to Byers taking the stage, the coaches for every fall sport and the dance team, cheerleading and band directors all spoke to the crowd as well, all sharing the message that everyone on the field was a Wildcat and all should support each other.

The night ended with the lighting of the Victory V by the Northwest Consolidated Fire District.
