There will be a new football team in the area when the 2011 high school football season kicks off.
The St. Jude Fighting Christians will begin play this fall as an independent varsity team. The team was formed primarily for home-schooled and private-school students in Mecklenburg and Union counties, although the organization also welcomes public-school athletes who don’t have a chance to play for their school teams for various reasons. The cost for athletes will be $299.
