Oswego High school students filled the stands of Ken Pickerill Stadium on Friday, Sept. 15, for the varsity football game. Oswego High School’s student section, Orange Crew, decided on whiteout for the designated theme, and students dressed up to show their school spirit and cheer on the team to a victory. 

Scroll down to see some of the standout outfits from the student section.
