There is an annual phenomenon that occurs in Davis each year during the week preceding the homecoming football game. Davis High female athletes and cheerleaders prank football players with toilet paper and numerous other pranks.
“I heard they once stole a player’s car keys out of the locker room during practice and filled his car with balloons,” former DHS football player Kevin Sorenson said.
Front yards of the homes of football players can be found with long strands of toilet paper hanging from the trees and strewn across yards.
“I remember a lot of pranks during homecoming at DHS […] My house was teepeed too,” Grant Dickerson said, another former DHS football player.
Teepeeing is considered a form of vandalism in Davis and can lead to a fine, but that does not seem to stop some people.
“My senior year everyone [teepeed] I know that the cheerleaders and football players tend to make a group and go together,” Dickerson said.
DHS football players should be prepared; they could be the victim of the next teepee attack.
“You never know what they’re going to do or when they’re going to get you,” Sorenson said.
