We worked on upgrading the fields in the Jim Barnett Park (Preston Fields) to create both an A Team Field and a B Team field. We're in the process of upgrading our scoreboard and our next project will be to upgrade the concession stand and create a new press box. We rely on the money we receive from our registrations and donations from local businesses to make all this happen. We have so many people on board that donate time and/or funds to help us continue to thrive.
1 Cheer Director
11 Board members
11 Cheerleading coaches

We introduced 7 year old football players to our league 5 years ago and 2 years ago we opened it up for 6 year olds. We've rearranged our age groups and added a Competitive Team for our older players.
Most of our board members have been part of the league whether it be as a player, cheerleader, parent or coach.
