By Brett Voss
Meridian Tribune

When the University Interscholastic League’s biennial realignment came out last February, Bosque County high school football fans were excited to see six-man football get an all-county district for the first time since 2000. So fittingly, when the dog days of summer arrived, the Bosque County 11-man football teams got together to form a league of their own as well. Beginning this Thursday at Jacket Stadium in Meridian, the Clifton Cubs, Valley Mills Eagles and Meridian Yellowjackets will assemble for the Bosque County Summer 7-on-7 League. Over the last several years, both Clifton and Meridian participated in the Hico 7-on-7 League.
