The Union Springs Recreation Department would like to thank all the players, parents, community members, volunteers, law enforcement, and friends for coming out to celebrate with the RRYFL Union Springs Baby Hornets for Homecoming 2019 on Saturday, September 28, 2019.
A special thanks to Union Springs Mayor Saint T. Thomas, Jr. and the City Council for their continued support for the Union Springs Recreation Department.
Homecoming day consisted of football games and many other activities. A jersey dedication ceremony was held in honor of Mr. Brandon Thomas. He was one of the Termites coaches that passed away earlier in the season.
There was a performance by the Bullock County Unified Cheering Squad, which consisted of cheerleaders from Bullock County High School, South Highland Middle School, and our very own Union Springs Baby Hornets.
Homecoming was also senior night for the Baby Hornets’ Junior team players who will be moving on to middle school football next year.
They were given trophies as a token of appreciation for all the hard work they put in this year. Raffle tickets were sold over the past few weeks leading up to Homecoming and the prizes were given away at various times throughout the day.
Coach Spears of Bullock County High School was on hand to select the lucky ticket holders and offer his support to the youth football program.
The entire day was a success and we hope you all continue to support our Union Springs Baby Hornets. There are two more regular season (away) games and then they will begin the playoffs. We hope to see you all at every game.
