Football fever is coming!
The fall sports season will soon be upon us, and this year the Jesup Citizen Herald will again be celebrating the pigskin season with its annual Football Contest. This year’s contest will be slightly different, as it will have online only entries.

“Virtually all of our entries have been made online for the past few years,” said Citizen Herald publisher Kim Edward Adams, “so we decided to simplify the contest for the participants and for the newspaper this year by limiting entries to online only.”

Business sponsors will still get their logos published both online and in print, Adams said, but the actual contest game pairings each week will appear only online at

“We plan to promote the contest even more this year,” Adams concluded, “both online and in print. So whether you’re a veteran football contest participant, or completely new to the game, go online to the newspaper website and take part in the fun of picking the winners in a variety of football games each week throughout the high school football season.”

The Football Contest will begin August 28, prior to the first high school football games on Friday, August 30.
Weekly prizes are awarded courtesy of the local high school booster clubs; and the grand prize will again be a $50 gift certificate from the Dairy Kone in Jesup.
