All school staff and students who present a valid form of identification (student ID card, employee badge/ID, business card and corresponding ID) will be admitted to the game free of charge.

General admission tickets are $5. Children 10 and under are free.

“We would like to show our appreciation for the tremendous amount of fan support we receive each season by inviting the community to come out and experience Cougar football,” head football coach Ted Iacenda said.

Last weekend, the Cougars defeated conference opponent Pasadena City College 28-24 in a thrilling come-from-behind road victory.

In addition, sophomore linebacker Paul Puebla was named the Southern California Football Association Northern League Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against Pasadena in week four. Puebla finished the contest with nine tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and an interception — a pick-six touchdown with 3:35 to play in the fourth quarter to give Canyons the win.
