Junior Comets Kick Off Season Saturday

The Junior Comets in action last season

The Junior Comets program, made up of fifth through eighth grade players and cheerleaders from throughout Bond County, will open their season Saturday, August 9 at 10:00 a.m.

“It’s a fun family experience,” said Dave Clark, head of the program this year. “We have cheerleaders that do a good job rooting on our athletes. We have a full concession stand, run by the parents, that is the main avenue to support the Junior Comets.

“It’s a great opportunity for the youth in our county to get a feel for football and get a good basic knowledge of how to run, block, and tackle, and get some of that competitive spirit.”

The Junior Comets have a nine-week season this year. Home games are played at Don Stout Field at Greenville High School.
