The beautiful Saturday morning on August 28, 2010, was perfect playing weather for youth football players and cheerleaders participating in this year’s Peewee Football League.
Kicking off the 2010 upcoming fall games, Westmoreland hosted a Jamboree packed with six action packed games, spanning from 10:30 a.m. through 2:15 p.m.
The first youth football battle was between the Westmoreland Raiders and the Macon County Spartans.
Each game held two fifteen minute quarters, including a new rule change, which stated the two-point conversion would only count for one point, and the extra-point kick would count for two points. League coaches stated this change would hopefully encourage teams to attempt more extra-point kicks while in the Peewee league, which would give players much needed experience in the kicking game for the higher levels.
