JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Atlantic Coast Stingrays host the Creekside Knights in the "Game of the Week" for Week 8 of Football Friday. 

Atlantic Coast High sure does have school spirit. Students showed News4Jax how they "Rays" up on game day.

"School spirit is everything here. We're all about Rays up. Tonight, we're having our senior tailgate. It's also going to be a pink out game tonight to support breast cancer awareness," said Student Government Association sponsor Soraya Lakatos. "And all of our seniors, our freshmen, sophomores, juniors -- we're going to be rocking the senior section and all the student sections tonight at the game."
