The smell of an anticipated victory was looming in the commons at John Glenn during a tailgate party held for the John Glenn Bobcat's Jr. Football team Monday evening! Monday was the "eve" of the BIG GAME Tuesday against rival Garber and was this team ever ready to rumble!

The John Glenn Bobcat's Jr. Football team is new to the league this season. Participating in this league as "Jr." to John Glenn will surely prepare these young players for the rigors of High School Football and better prepared to experience 9th grade athletics.

This team has shown perseverance and dedication to the game throughout the entire season. Their following has been one that most would not expect for a middle school league. There are forty five players on this team and their support has not only been consistent, but an enormous source of strength for them!

The team has also gained a ton of support from John Glenn Varsity Football Head Coach Mark Miller and his coaching team. Current and previous J.V. and Varsity John Glenn players have shown up in droves to offer their assistance to this team as well as many area businesses (sponsors listed below).

The coaching staff, players and parents voiced their gratitude Monday evening for the many area businesses that have contributed to the success of this team. Recently, the team was able to raise enough money to fund desperately needed new helmets. They are still in need of equipment and already setting their sights on the 2009 season!

This team was definitely prepared for Tuesday's game against Garber!

Players Josh Grimmer, Logan Pijaszek and Thomas Thelen take time to chat with the cheerleaders!
