“Our program is not only about football and cheerleading,” Union said “We also want the youngsters to do well in school.

“While there is a $20 non-refundable equipment co-pay for all participants, it can be taken care of by donating items for the concession stand.”

The league is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions, which are needed and appreciated, are tax-deductible.

Checks should be made payable to “Decatur County Warriors League, Inc.,” and mailed to Union at “114 Black Jack Road, Bainbridge, GA 39817.”
