Hudson High School will be hosting a Senior vs. Staff football game on Wednesday, May 9, at 6 p.m. in the new HHS Raider Stadium. Seniors from the class of 2018 are invited to play against the faculty and the public is invited to join the festivities.

Activities include contests for prizes, staff pep band and cheer team, and a live concert by the band Yam Haus following the football game. Concessions, food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Cost is $5 per person with the proceeds from admission and the concessions funding a scholarship for a senior student. The scholarship recipient will be chosen by the HHS faculty.

Yam Haus is a band that was formed after years of making music in high school. The Minneapolis-based pop band will release their debut album this summer. Produced by Mark Heimermann at Sevens-Gate Studio in Hudson, the band's love for punchy pop, old school rock and roll, sensitive folk, and the beat of hip-hop inspired their first album. HHS alumni, lead vocalist, Lars Pruitt, and Zach Beinlich collaborate with Heimermann to write songs that reflect on the frontman's past and tell the story of finding meaning in the midst of pain.
