After ending their season after just two games in 2020 due to low numbers. Paden City’s first-year head coach Robert Price said it was important to bring the program back this year.
It’s just such a big thing for not only our football families and our football boys and our players but also our band our community our cheerleaders are all apart of this on Friday night and they deserve any opportunity to get out here and showcase their things as well.Robert Price
