Andover Football Cancelled for Season

The Oakland Press reported this morning that Andover Barron Football Season had been cancelled the day before when only eleven players could dress for Tuesday's practice. Mike Cowdry Director of Athletics reported that 28 kids reported for the program initially but as of last Friday's game 16 where able to dress or play in the game. By Tuesday September 11th  the number had winded to 11. It is difficult to practice with  such a small number and with the the physical  demands of the game, with such numbers one  risks injury. Friday night's game with Ferndale is cancelled and Cowdry citing circumstances beyond control said, "My heart  goes to them (Ferndale).

The Andover program has been touch and go since last October. 2011 was valorous season. The 2012 team continued the Barron's long tradition of football excellence and spirit to three games including the Battle of the Sword before  it became hopeless.

Next year all the Lahser and Andover football players will be playing for the New Bloomfield High School Black Hawks. In anticipation of that event two School Board candidates have adopted the Black Hawks Colors of  Purple, White, and Black Blue for their campaign.
