The Chatham-Kent Cougars Football Club is reflecting how much the club has grow in eight years.

President Sel Jordan started the club in 2006 because there was no minor football in the municipality.

“I think we have, right now, about 23 players that have left our program and have gone to university,” says Jordan. “Half of them, or more, have got scholarships. It’s becoming big money for students who are looking to go to university and play.”

Jordan says they started with about 65 players on a travel peewee team, and now they have around 750 at any time playing or attending their numerous football clinics. They’ve had over 3,000 make their way through the program in eight years.
