PORTLAND, Ore. >> Hooters’ waitresses in orange shorts and tight tops lined up in two rows to cheer Corbett Middle School football players who arrived for their after-season party at the Jantzen Beach restaurant in Portland.

Fifteen of the team’s 23 members attended Saturday’s party which went on after the school district withdrew its support and fired the coach for refusing to move the celebration to another location.

Coach Randy Burbach thought Hooters was appropriate and refused to back down.

The Oregonian reports (http://bit.ly/1budLv6 ) 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, with pizza.
