We truly showed we were the best in Alabama and it paid off winning this challenge.”

“We, at Dothan High School, have a spirit that is born from our pride in being part of such a great school and community.  Our positive spirit not only comes from our students but also our staff. We are so proud of the efforts of our student body to show the entire state that being a part of the pack is a special feeling that fosters our school spirit.
