SPARTA, NJ – The football season started late for Sparta High School.  The seniors were honored at the first game on Friday night under the lights at Cassels Field.

"The seniors this year have done such an amazing job staying positive and team-oriented in the face of so much uncertainty," Coach Kandace Pollison said. "They have taken every change in stride and kept a smile on their face while doing it.  They have worked tirelessly to make this season a great one, and Coach Quinn and I are so grateful for the example they set for their younger teammates."

The cheerleaders and football players were met midfield by their parents for a hug as their names were announced.
