As of Friday, September 23, all four of the Bo Manor junior football squads - the A, B, C, and D teams - were undefeated after the first four games of the season. That's a 16 game winning streak and in as much as anyone knows, a rare occurrence.
Joel Harris is the new president of the league. "We just changed hands. We're under new leadership," said Dannon Wilson, the mother of the player.
Wilson is more than just a football mom. She is also a teacher at Bo Manor Middle School. She said the winning ways have had a positive impact. "The teams encourage each other and the kids are building each other up. There is league unity and support," said Wilson.
That has also happened off the field, with the players encouraging each other in class. She said they support each other on and off the field.
Cecil County Junior Football League has six teams across the county - Rising Sun Tigers, North East Indians, Perryville Panthers, Cherry Hill Cougars, Elkton Elks, and the Eagles.
One of the missions of the league is "fostering teamwork, compassion and charity within our communities for the betterment of our members, future members, and collective program."
