Booneville, Miss. – Fans attending Northeast Mississippi Community College home football games this fall may want to watch the stands and field for ‘Bleacher Kreatchers.’

The popular program for young Tiger football fans that are enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade returns for a second straight season.

Boys and girls who sign up to be a Bleacher Kreatcher will be admitted to all five home football games free with a paying adult and will lead the Tigers onto the field just prior to kickoff.

Unlike last year, there will be no cost to participate in the program. Simply fill out the form available online at or at the Northeast Development Foundation office in Patterson Hall on the Booneville campus.

The first 100 participants at the first game on Thursday, September 5 when Northeast faces Jones County Junior College will receive a free t-shirt and a Wendy’s restaurant free meal coupon.

Wendy’s will also provide every participating child with a coupon for each of the remaining four home contests.

All Bleacher Kreatchers must report to the tiger head tunnel located at the north end zone of Tiger Stadium by 6 p.m. each game.
