Jersey for Jeziel

   The Senior squad of the Junior Bucs football team took a break from their practice to present their teammate Jeziel Marte with a special jersey. Mr. Marte who suffered a head injury in the spring will not be able to join his team this season.  Since he is headed into the 7th grade in September he will miss his first chance to play for the Senior Squad. Even with more surgery & then rehabilitation in his future Jeziel hopes to join his teammates next season, and will support the Sr. Bucs as much as possible this year. Along with the jersey he was presented with a weight-in t-shirt that the Senior team will also wear under their uniforms during the games. The t-shirts will read " Leave it on the Field" on the back. And on the front will be Bogota Football  along with a player wearing  Jeziel's  number 66. 
    The first game will be at Englewood on Friday-12 September starting with the Pee-Wee game at 6:00p. The Bucs first Home game will be on Saturday 20-Sept. at Feigel Field starting with the Pee-Wee at 11:00a.  The Night before on Friday 19- September there will be a Pep-Rally for the players at Olsen park starting at 7:00p.  There are still opening to join the Junior Bucs Football in any of the three divisions. They are 
- The Pee-Wee is for the youngest players which is for student from 2nd to 4th grade, and are under 11 years of age.
- The Junior division is for those players who are in 5th & 6st grade and are under the age of 13.
