Football program takes a leap forward

Look for a stronger middle school football program this fall. Changes to strengthen the program were made after some members of the coaching staff criticized the direction the program was going.
The School District has doubled the number of coaches at the middle school level and added three games to its schedule, which will allow for better instruction and more playing time for middle school players. The moves were made while staying with the program’s budget, said middle school athletic director Sarah Marxhausen.
