Powderpuff Football

Every year the 7th grade girls play the 8th grade girls in a game of Powder Puff Football while the boys are cheerleaders.  This tradition was started several years ago in memory of 13-year-old Torrell Holley who on October 19, 2001 was playing basketball at Liberty when he suddenly collapsed while running down the court — dying moments later from cardiac arrest. He had a previously undiagnosed heart condition known as ARVD (arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia) for which there had been no warning. The powderpuff game serves to raise funds for the Torrell Holley Scholarship Award and “shares the tremendous characteristics of Torrell with Liberty students. Those characteristics are sportsmanship, great team spirit and a genuine love for all".
