HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Saint Jo plays host to Tioga



The Saint Jo High School football team will open the 2017 season with three straight home games.
And that’s much to new head coach Derek Schlieve’s liking.
“With a young team, you want to be in a familiar environment,” Schlieve said. “We have a lot of new kids starting out.”
Many of the boys from the undefeated junior high school team will be ninth-graders – joining a group including Blake Anderson, Preston Lyons, Ethan Wagner and others.
Saint Jo will take on Tioga on Sept. 1, followed by McKinney’s Cornerstone Christian Sept. 8 and the Chillicothe on Sept. 15. All three games will take place at venerable Harley Sewell Field with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
Then the Panthers travel to games at Vernon Northside (Sept. 22) and Savoy (Sept. 29). Read more in the June 17 Bowie News.
