A couple of years ago the tradition of a “student march” from Darby to Davidson High School started before the two rivals met on the football field. Last Friday the tradition continued with hundreds of students showing their school spirit and Darby Pride when they marched over to Davidson. Hopefully this is a tradition that continues to grow every other year! #PantherNation
