The Lima Senior High School Spartan football program is featured in a preseason hype video for Wilson Sporting Goods that will be shown at high school football stadiums and social media outlets around the country.
A camera crew from Chicago spent nearly a week in the area, including two days at Lima Senior football practices. The video includes video of practice and a pregame pep talk from Coach Mike Fell.
“This is just great for our guys, this school and the entire Lima community,” Fell said in a new release. “It shows that Lima Senior football is back on the map, and this video is just one more way to pump up an already psyched and ready-to-go team and Spartan community. “
The Spartans kick off the season against Middletown at 7 p.m. Saturday in Barnitz Stadium in Middletown. The first home game is against Marion Harding Friday, Sept. 4, at Spartan Stadium.
Spartan Stadium will unveil a new video scoreboard at its Sept. 18 game. Plans are to show the Wilson video that night.
