The Salt River High School Eagles football team opened the new football season by hosting a tailgate party on Friday, August 28. Parents, students and guests helped the team by exhibiting their school spirit prior to the teamís first game that evening. The football players were introduced, and they greeted fans and served the barbecue dinner that they helped to cook, along with the Salt River Fire Department and the East Valley Firefighter Charities.

After the celebration, Eagles fans filled the bleachers to watch the seasonís first game, against the New Way Academy Bulldogs.

No. 02, Junior Alex Hill-Jimenez, made the first touchdown for the Eagles during the home opener. Later on, sophomore Damon Marez caught a touchdown pass from Hill-Jimenez for a score. By the fourth quarter, the Eagles were ahead as they scored one more touchdown by Hill-Jimenez. Unfortunately, they ran out of time, and the Bulldogs were able to outscore the Eagles. The game ended with a score of 20-24.
