PORTLAND, Ore. (November 11, 2013) Hooters' waitresses in orange shorts and tight tops lined up in two rows to cheer 15 Corbett Middle School football players who arrived for an after-season party at the Jantzen Beach restaurant in Portland, Ore.
The 15 of the team's 23 members attended Saturday's party, which went on even after the school district withdrew its support for the gathering and fired the coach for refusing to move the celebration to another site.
Coach Randy Burbach thought Hooters was appropriate and refused to back down.
The Oregonian reported that most of the players kept their heads down and their hands in their lettermen jackets as their arrival was recorded on video cameras.
Hooters paid for the party and made a donation to the Corbett Middle School sports program.
The official awards party is Monday.
Pizza will be served.
