The 2009 Oregon state championship in front of a packed arena was a day I will never forget. Holding ornate posters, all the teams marched in and were introduced. Gazing at the Stars and Stripes while hearing the powerful voice of Whitney Houston sing our national anthem truly inspired me with a sense of national pride.
