This past Friday night the a Homer Trojans hosted the Chttenango Bears at Butts Field for their third game of the year.
Last week Homer beat the Lakers from Skaneatelas for their 300th school win.

Chittenango travel south to Homer fresh off a big win over Phoenix, last week, and looking to steal a win on the road from the Trojans. The Bears started out fast with two quick TD’s to put the home team in a early hole to start the game.

Homer stayed with their game plan and ran the ball and played some tough Defense.

Alec Bush put the Defense back on their heals with 220 yards rushing and two touchdowns to help his team come back to tie the game. Bush has a great season so far this year making some key runs for the Trojans from the back field.

As the days are getting shorter and the nights a little cooler, it must be time for some High School Football.

Homer High School Football is a timely tradition in our small town of Homer, NY. Coach Gary Podsiedlik will travel north with his 2013 varsity football team to the Syracuse Carrier Dome for their season opener. The Trojans will take on the Phoenix Firebirds on the big stage at the Dome. Playing in the Carrier Dome seems to be a bid deal for all of the players that are involved, so it’s pretty neat that this years team gets to open their season in SU.
