On Saturday, local parents and children were invited to sign up for football this fall.
The registration took place at the Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi in Meridian. Officials there say it is an opportunity for kids to get together and take part in something they enjoy.
"What we're trying to do is give every child living inside Lauderdale County the opportunity to play football, regardless of their economic status," executive director Ricky Hood says. "So, we feel good about what we're doing and the number of kids that participate in our program. This year, we're anticipating having about 16 teams of boys between the ages of 5 and 12."
For more information on registration, you may contact the Boys and Girls Club at 601-482-2544.
