April Florie roaming sidelines for High School East

'Overwhelmed and honored' by the attention

Nov. 20, 2023-- High School East's April Florie (above, center, white shirt) has been on the football team's sidelines throughout the 2023 season. As a woman on/in the field, this has garnered a lot of attention in recent weeks, particularly after being endorsed by tennis great Billie Jean King. The subsequent coverage has been fun, positive, and inspiring. We're attempting to consolidate some of that attention, including the Toms River Patch story linked here, CBS News coverage embedded to the right, and more below. May we also add: Way to go, April!
