Football Game Cancellation

Good Morning Jefferson Families and Community,

We have some unfortunate news this morning regarding our football game against Santiam Christian tonight. Due to a sickness that has gone through the team and a few injuries that have come up over the past week, we are now below the minimum number of players to compete.

After consulting with the coaching staff, school administration, and the district office, we have decided to forfeit the game tonight due to our low numbers and for our athlete’s safety and health.

Deciding to forfeit a game is a difficult decision and we understand how disappointing and difficult that is for our team and our fans. But we look forward to seeing our Lions fully recovered and back on the field next Friday, October 7, as we take on Amity right here at home. For all of our players and parents of the players, we wish you the best as you recover from these illnesses and injuries, and please do not hesitate to reach out to Mr. Naugle, our Athletic Director, if you have any immediate concerns.

Thank you for your ongoing support of our athletes, Jefferson!
