Underclassmen
A STUDENT is a learner or someone who attends an educational institution . In the United Kingdom , those attending university are termed "students" while "pupil" refers to an attendee of a lower educational institute; the same was typically true in the United States previously where student was considered a more lofty and ambitious title, one who was actively seeking knowledge, not just learning it because they were required to. In the United States, and more recently also in the UK, the term "student" is applied to both categories: school and university students. In its widest use, student is used for anyone who is learning , including mid-career adults who are taking vocational education or returning to university. When speaking about learning outside an institution, "student" is also used to refer to someone who is learning a topic or who is "a student of" a certain topic or person

Canada
, POWDERPUFF football games are flag football or touch football games between girls from junior and senior classes or cross-town school rivals.

The term originates from the powder puff , the soft material used for the application of cosmetic face powder. The games usually occur before homecoming . Many schools that participate in powderpuff games have created their own traditions. Some examples of traditions that make the event more entertaining for students are the creation of team uniform T-shirts for each of the classes, pre-game pep talks to get everyone "pumped", and special half-time performances from the class's male members, sometimes with them dressing up in female clothing

American football
played by high schools that are too small to field teams for the usual 11-man game. In the United States, the Minnesota State High School League , North Dakota High School Activities Association , and South Dakota High School Activities Association hold high-school state tournaments in nine-man football. The size of the playing field is often smaller in nine-man football than in 11-man. Some states opt for a smaller, 80-yard -long by 40-yard-wide field (which is also used in eight-man and six-man ); other states keep the field of play at 100 yards long while reducing the width to 40 yards, some even play on a full-sized playing field. In games played on 80-yard fields, kickoffs take place from the 20-yard line rather than from the 30-yard line
