Among the many changes made by new Greene County head football coach Mitch Moore is to hold some practices away from Jefferson. Practice was in Grand Junction last night. It’s in Churdan from 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 15, and in Scranton on Thursday, Aug. 17 from 5-6:15 p.m.
Hauling equipment and players to other towns isn’t as easy as staying in Jefferson, and it’s not even necessary. Coach Moore told Raccoon Valley Radio why he does it. “The number one thing is community involvement. The motto we adopted when I got here is One Team, One County, One Vision. So to do that I think it’s necessary that we get out and in Grand Junction, Churdan, and Scranton, and have some practices there so people in those communities can see what’s going on. After work, come on out and watch the football team practice a little bit and see what we’re doing.”
The coach added that by the time this weekend is finished, the Rams will have put in more than 250 hours of community service around Greene County. He added, “I’m really proud of them for that!”
The Rams open the regular season on Aug. 25 in Jefferson at Linduska Field vs. the Knights of Kuemper Catholic. Coach Moore’s vision for opening night is to have the west stands completely full of fans of the Rams.
