Jyllian Harris – November 5, 2018 – Lone Star High School
Jyllian has taken leadership of our student section and has turned it into a force to be reckoned with. No one appoints a student section leader, it’s up to them to take the reins and Jyllian has taken over with great spirit and enthusiasm. Her goal is to make it a great season for everyone who attends a football game. She coordinates theme nights for the students, leads student section cheers and makes sure everyone is on point and stands throughout each game. While she is a Ranger football fan, she is a Ranger spirit supporter of all. Her dream is to go to Texas A & M where she can continue the legacy of spirit and support.
