The team provided a t-shirt from Arab High School present for all of the coaches and boys to autograph to show how much Hardee’s support them. The employees were decked out and in blue and white visors and the managers wore shirts representing the KNIGHTS logo. This was a great day for Hardee’s and the Arab High School Wrestling team!
