Calling all Vikings… Today I invite you to participate in the Mt. Hebron High School - Fight Song Project. The goal of this project is to bring the Mt. Hebron community closer together during a time when we are encouraged (required) to be apart. The Mt. Hebron Fight Song, based on “Mr. Touchdown, USA” has been a tradition for as long as anyone can remember. Written by Percy Faith and originally released in 1958, the school fight song serves as a rallying call at sporting events and other activities when the community gathers.
This project is open to all current, former, and future members of the Mt. Hebron Band and Marching Unit, as well as anyone interested in supporting the efforts of the larger Mt. Hebron Community. Basically... anyone and everyone that is part of our community. Here is how it works.
Mr. Touchdown, USA (Percy Faith)
Dust off your instrument, find a good reed, oil those valves, or borrow an instrument. Let’s make this an epic display of our community (past, present and future) coming together. We want everyone to record themselves playing the fight song. The goal is to get a recording of as many people as possible playing our fight song in support of the amazing Mt. Hebron Community,
STEP #1 - Download / print music HERE!
Dress up in your Mt. Hebron gear (It does not matter how old it is!) and take a selfie or group shot of you holding a message of hope and/or thanks for our Mt. Hebron staff and students. We all need a bit of a pick me up right now and it would be great to see everyone… even if we are separated by a computer screen. Let’s move from Mope and Desperation to Hope and Inspiration!
STEP #1 - Dress up in your Mt. Hebron gear.
STEP #2 - Save your picture to the Fight Song Project folder HERE!
It’s time that we added our own words to the fight song to truly make it Mt. Hebron. Let’s create something lasting out of this time apart. A committee of Mt. Hebron teachers and students will review all submissions and work to create and adopt the “official” words to the Mt. Hebron Fight Song.
STEP #1 - Listen to the recording of the fight song below. Follow the melody and consider the words that will lead us on to victory!
It's time to fight for our Mt. Hebron
Stand up and cheer the Black and Gold
Standing tall we will not fall
This is our team we are VIKING STRONG!
So keep on fighting for our vikings
honest and loyal we'll be
for when you're Viking Strong
you know it won't be long
til we march to ViCTORY!
