’Jackets join field
for Pioneer jamboree
Greenfield will part of the Gibson County football jamboree on Friday night, an event that will host prep and junior high action at Yates Field.
Play begins at 6 p.m. for the jamboree, sponsored by the Pioneer Football QB Club, GCHS and Sports Orthopedics and Spine.
Joining Greenfield’s prep team will be Three Oaks Middle School, Fulton City High School and both the middle school and high school teams from Gibson County.
The format will be different from most of the area jamborees as each session will have the teams staying on either offense or defense with a 12-minute running clock.
The teams will be able to work on one phase of their game for an extended period of time.
The three high school teams will rotate play. Each offense will compete against the other two defenses, and each defense will compete against the other two offenses.
There will be breaks in the action that will include some punt, pass and kick competition; and fastest back, lineman, and cheerleader 40-yard races.
Advance tickets will be on sale at the schools participating and at the gate that night.
