Preliminary numbers for Football

Good afternoon-just a quick update on number of students signed up for football for the fall of 2018. As of 1:05 PM today (March 9th) there are 58 students signed up for football!

These numbers include 39 from North Butler (39% of HS boys), and 19 from Clarksville (17 boys and 2 girls 47% of HS boys). What a great number! When you consider that both schools have decent numbers in Cross Country that is a very good sign. I am elated that our student athletes are willing to participate in the activities that we provide.

I am so looking forward to football season and the great experience that our kids will all have because both boards have been able to provide an experience that will benefit all of the students! Experience that is appropriate to the development level of the players is vital to the development of a good program! Great pride Indians and Bearcats!
