The league is right in the middle of our 2nd fundraiser for the year. This is the Under Armor fundraiser where the brochures have been handed out to each player and cheerleader. I ask everyone who has tried to help our league with this fundraiser to get these turned in to the pressbox this coming Saturday, October 8 at your game. Also our friend Tony “Cheesy” Gregory has made it through open heart surgery this past week and will be having some more this week. He will be out of work for several months so our league will be collecting donations at the front gate during the remainder of the season to try and help with some of his bills. Please help and contribute what you can but most importantly – keep him in your prayers that he will return to his normal self soon.
Our day started off with all four of our flag teams playing as we have close to 40 flag players this year. It seems like that we had a pretty good crowd to come out and watch these young men and even some young ladies play their game. It seems that everyone enjoyed themselves.
