The PORTA-AC Bluejays lost their season opener at the Blacktop Braggin’ Rights game to the Athens Warriors 42-0.

With several Bluejay linemen out due to injury, the Jays had a tough time against Athens big line.

PORTA did show signs of promise as only a handful of penalties were made, and some exciting plays were made by many players, including an interception by Brandon Allison and some great catches by Colton Crain and Caleb Flanders.

The Bluejays are in action next Friday night at New Berlin.

We would like to welcome Coach Nate Herkert to the PORTA Football program. Nate graduated from PORTA in 2008 and was a part of the 2007 team that went 9-0 and won the West Prairie Trail Conference. Nate comes to us after teaching at Central A&M. He will be coaching Running Backs and Outside Linebackers.
