Frisco, Texas– A lot goes into a Centennial High School football game, on and off the field. However, there is one often overlooked yet integral piece to these games: the Red Riots.


The Red Riots are Centennial High School’s very own spirit squad. Their vibrant presence can be seen at a football game, running across the field with a colossal flag, or on campus, extending their warmth to Titans everywhere in their extravagant spirited overalls.

Mrs. Gillespy, Red Riots sponsor shared “The Red Riots bring the fun and school spirit to pep rallies, football games, send-offs, and other sporting events. They run the flags at football games, toss out spirit items at pep rallies and games, and encourage the students to stand at pep rallies and have school spirit.”


Beyond serving the school and community around them, the Red Riots foster an atmosphere of positivity among their own ranks between not only each other but also the teacher sponsors of the program.


Red Riots captain and Centennial High School junior Ava Winters says, “We are a very happy, joyful bunch! Everyone supports each other and is in the group because they love our school.”


The Red Riots are looking forward to a bright year. Captains Elyse and Ava have been working tirelessly to ensure that the program succeeds with flying colors, leaving a permanent mark on the people and culture of Centennial High School.


In preparation for the school year, Ava also shared “Elyse and I have updated our red riot uniforms to jerseys as opposed to our tie-dye shirts for a new look this year!”


At the first game of the year, the power of school spirit was seen in full force, leading the Titans to victory. The student section roared, chanting for every point scored while the Red Riots dashed, waving their flags in perfect unison.


Ava shared her hopes for the year: “My hope is that red riots inspire our student body to be spirited and supportive of Centennial! Having Titan Pride is fun, and Red Riots’ main goal is to show everyone just how fun it can be!”


If you would like to be a part of this spirited and optimistic crew, you can! At the end of each year, there is an interest meeting for all Red Riot hopefuls. As long as you’re an upstanding member of the Centennial High School community, you can expect to be a part of the team. Being a part of the Red Riots is an extremely rewarding experience that brings spirit to Titans all throughout campus, and their impact is immeasurable.
