As far as the team growing, the Spring season has drawn interest from many Mustangs.

“I have received many emails about the Spring season, showing a continued growing interest,” said Marron.

There is a chance that Play VS, the organization that LRHS plays in, will offer games popular games like “Madden” and “FIFA” next year. Marron believes the addition of big-name gaming titles such as these would greatly boost interest.
