Flag, Mighty and Pee Wee football teams started practice this week at the high school. Flag is anywhere from 5-7, Mighty is 7-9 depending on the weight of the children and Pee Wee is 9-12.

According to LeeAnn Dooley “We’re just trying to grow numbers and get kids involved and participating. It’s been difficult. I don’t know if it’s video games that are a part of it, or what.”

“We’ve had more volunteers this year than in the past, so that’s good,” said Dooley.

Scrimmaging starts at the end of August and full games start the first week of September and run until the end of October. All the home games are at Veteran’s Memorial Field and they are usually held Saturday night under the lights.
