The North Kansas City Schools played against each other in the Annual Football Jamboree on Aug. 12 at the DAC [District Activities Center].

Although the games were practice and scores were not recorded, Winnetonka’s varsity beat Staley 7-0 and JV tied Oak Park and North Kansas City.

The team and coaches are working on new techniques but still getting used to them.

“We put in a new type of offense and there are still some kinks we need to get straightened out,” football coach Jared Buckman said. “Those problems will get solved with great practices and focus amongst players and staff.

Head football coach Jared Barge believes that the rest of the season looks good but still has room for improvement.

“After the jamboree, we felt really good about the direction we are headed,” Barge said.

Overall, everyone was satisfied with how the players’ performanced.

“We played very well and the coaches and players were pleased with the progress we made over the summer,” Buckman said. “Based on the jamboree, we will be ready for the start of the season and the season to come.”
