The wrestling team looking fierce for a photo before the day gets started on their debut tournament of the 2023 season. Coach Medina states, “As a team we need to continue to foster the belief that we can and will make this happen. Wrestling is a grueling sport. It’s not for the faint of heart. But if we continue to push each other and believe in one another the sky’s the limit. We will look to learn and grow from our matches throughout the year and look to peak right for regionals and state. We will harp on technique, fill whatever holes we have in our game and WE WILL be ready. We are just getting started.”

Attendence really shouldn’t play such a huge role in education. College students are doing fine with the choice of attending class or not. Highschool students struggle already with time management, learning this skill earlier on will benefit their futures.

Five Nights gets Five Stars

The long awaited FNAF film has finally arrived and did not disappointed
After many years of anticipation FNAF was finally brought to the life on the big screen ad fans are loving it.

Ever since the game was first released in August 2014, fans have been asking and begging for this. The creators finally listened, and after only 9 years, it’s here! Five Nights at Freddy’s was released on October 27, 2023.

This film, has had a lot of controversy over whether it was a respectable part of the franchise or if it was a bad movie that should be tied to the franchise. But I believe most of the dislike for the movie is because of confusion and not knowing the fact that most of the games in the franchise are fan-made, so the movie is only based off of the first game.

From the point of view of a huge fan of the franchise, I loved it! The movie was not only super entertaining, but it also played on the story line very well and kept you on your toes the whole time. Not only did the storyline line up almost perfectly, The costume making was absolutely amazing; they made the animatronics look so real, and even the exoskeleton that you only see for like one scene looks so real that it feels like you are inside the actual game and gives you a very eerie feeling.

The only downside to the movie for me was the casting. I would have made a huge casting change and cast Markiplier as the aim character because, as a YouTuber, he has a lot of influence on the popularity of the games he plays, and after making over 240 videos over the course of the series and introducing them to a lot of young kids, it has brought the franchise so much success that it would have been great to see them give him the honor of playing in the movie.

For someone who is not as engaged and hasn’t played in the FNAF universe like my brother who watched this film with me, he still said that he found the movie was still a great movie, but to truly understand the whole thing, it’s best to play at least the first game. If not, play more or all the games in the series to truly immerse yourself in it.

All in all, whether you are a huge fan of the franchise or this is your introduction to it, many can agree that this is a great movie. This is a 10/10 for me, with everything from the costumes to the storyline being so good, I couldn’t make it better if I tried to.
