Both Wilson and Bingham serve on the nine member Logan County Youth Football Advisory Board, which was organized to help grow a Jr. Pro Football league.
Last year, there were 106 kids participating in the program and organizers hope to double that by next season.
Wilson and Bingham told the court they would be coming back in June to ask for financial support, hoping the county would join forces with the intuitive.
A few items mentioned to help with included: touching up the football field in the Auburn Park, which is where the league currently plays, uniform and equipment costs, a scoreboard, and possibly helping to get Russellville’s new park up and running.
Judge/Executive Logan Chick said he understood youth sports was growing, and it was a good thing, but was a little hesitant about helping one and not all.
Magistrate Thomas Bouldin mentioned former magistrate Dickie Carter’s idea last year of setting aside funds to help out Logan County’s youth. Bouldin said this might just be an idea the funds could be used on.
Bouldin liked the idea of purchasing a scoreboard because it could help all sports and not just one.
