The Thomas Jefferson Youth Football Program was
established to provide the youth of the area with a positive and safe football
experience. The hope is for young
athletes to gain experience in individual skills, physical fitness, competitive
spirit, and the ability to contribute as apart of a team sport. It is important that parents demonstrate good
relations with their child, coach, and organization.
TJYFB considers competition healthy and instructive but
de-emphasizes the importance of winning and instead promotes the
importance of safe participation. We provide the development of young
athletes and the adults who guide them. Safety First, Learning and Fun!!!!
Week 1 - Thomas Jefferson Jaguars vs. Belle Vernon Leopards
The TJ little Jags for the JV level played a great game. It was a great learning experience for the newcomers and the "senior level" kids really stepped it up as leaders. All of the kids played their hearts our and left it all on the field. The final score was TJ 44 - BV 14. The JV squad starts the season off to a hot start with an explosive offensive show and a strong defensive stand; only allowing two TD's. The little Jags JV are 1 - 0 and will be facing a great Laurel Highlands team next Sunday, August 28th @ 12:30pm.
The TJ little Jags for the Varsity level played also played a great game. The BV team was much older, stronger and faster than our Jaguars; however, they boy never quit. The final score was TJ 6 - BV 38. The Varsity squad starts the season off to a bumpy start, but are back at it and ready for the next week. There were a lot of good and bad things that came from the film and the coaches are making the necessary adjustments and will be well prepared next week. The little Jags Varsity are 0 - 1 and will be facing a tough Laurel Highlands team next Sunday, August 28th @ 2:30pm.
Please come out and support our TJ Jaguars!!!
