Deptford High School "Fight Song" was borrowed from
San Jose State University?

It is said that the Head of the DTHS Guidance Department in 1959, Mr. Roy Wager suggested that our mascot be the Spartans.  Mr. Wager also suggested that the fight song be "The Spartan Fight Song" from his alma mater San Jose State University.

Here is a clip of San Jose State
's Fight Song


Below are some photos of Deptfords 1st Marching Band
