The Grant Pacers are getting a lot of attention prior to the CIF Championship Bowl, bringing a lot of notoriety to the Del Paso Heights neighborhood.
Marcos Breton of the Sacramento Bee wrote the community’s pride fueled the aggressive style of the Pacers, and even as the neighborhood’s demographics changed since the school’s founding in 1935, the connection between Grant and Del Paso Heights remained firm [Community pride fuels Grant’s title game – Sacbee.com].
There is also talk of shops in the Del Paso Heights area closing prior to the game’s 8pm start [Community Support runs deep for Grant football – Sacbee.com].
The Pacers have the opportunity to help Sacramento-area football gain statewide attention [Pacers aim to put area on the map – Sacbee.com].
