Junior High football Pirates bring home a trophy and a good time was had by all

You’d have thought it was 1991. But the players in the bus weren’t even born then.

Thursday evening the Bluffton Junior High football team rode into town like the champions that they are – escorted by fire and police vehicles and followed by lots and lots of cars honking, probably all the way from Columbus Grove.


Yep, you'd have thought it was 1991.
