Youth football players from Gordon-Rushville, Valentine and Chadron gathered in Gordon Sunday, Sept. 25 for several games. The G-R 3rd and 4th graders played Chadron, and the 5th and 6th graders played Chadron and Valentine.

The team has also played Hay Springs and Crawford this year,  and will host Lusk, Wyo. this Sunday in Rushville at 1:30 p.m. and play at Morrill next weekend.

“This program was started 9 years ago when this year’s Juniors were 3rd graders,” said Randy Hurlburt. “I have noticed a great improvement in our football program.  Kids learn the game before they are in 7th grade.  This is a huge help for the Middle School football program and the High School.”
