Schedules, scores and highlights of High School Football around the Valley
For a second year, Valley Children's Hospital is making sure school nurses throughout the Valley are prepared for anything.
Friday morning was all about the "Highlander Hype" as Friday Morning Football took us to McLane High School in Central Fresno.
Students, at McCardle Elementary, sitting on bean bags, bouncing on yoga balls, and even balancing on stability mats--all while staying focused on the lesson plan.
