The inaugural season of Union County football is over and we congratulate all who participated in this transition from a dream to a team.
The issue going forward will be to come up with the money and booster support to advance the program each year. That is the task for the Union County School Board, which already faces major state budget cuts, and Union County school supporters who need to push private fundraising efforts.
Thanks also are in order for the New Albany School District, which cooperated with the county program to allow the use of Kitchens’ Field for two games. We hope that cooperation can continue.
We look forward to the day when both the city and county have strongly competitive football teams as our area continues to improve its academic and extracurricular activities in the public schools.
