The Nordhoff High School (NHS) football program hosted the Friday Night Lights Family Festival July 13 on the school campus and according to head coach Lance Wiggins, the purpose of the event was to connect the Ojai Valley community to this year’s team and help fundraise for the upcoming season.
“We didn’t raise as much money as we’d hoped, but I thought the work we were able to do around building relationships with the community was well worth the effort,” said Wiggins. “There were a lot of families and lots of kids, which I thought was great. Also, a lot of the parents of our players got the opportunity to get up close while the kids were working out.”
