During the 2014-15 school year, Apex High School athletics achieved statewide victory on multiple occasions. On September 3rd, during halftime of the Varsity football game vs. Sanderson High, our Cougars were recognized and received their State-Champ rings. Congratulations all, and go Cougars!

On the evening of August 28th, 2015 a star was born at the Apex High School Varsity football game vs. Wake Forest.
Luckily, I caught the star pre-fame, and he showed me a few of his tricks. Not only is Chase Graves an exceptional dancer, but he also seemingly defies Newton’s First Law with his football- balancing skills. I was thoroughly impressed.
Halftime rolled around and Chase prepared to conquer the Massage Envy Apex Beaver Creek “Envy of the Game” dance-off. Max Laing, a senior at Apex High School, proved a worthy opponent. With DJ Snake’s Get Low blasting, the crowd went wild for Chase’s moves. In a later interview with our winner, Chase credits his success to his mother’s advice to, “..move, and then just start dancing along!”
Our champion received a Massage Envy Apex Beaver Creek Gift Card. The Cougar Club offers a huge thank you to Massage Envy for their support of Apex High School athletics and giving our school the opportunity to be a part of their Envy of the Game dance-off!
In our interview following the big win, Chase mentioned that he is “gonna be a star one day”. There you have it folks; a high-school football game with an appearance by a future dance-star.
