Joliet Buccaneers 13th Season in Will County
Joliet- The most famous line in movie history was said by the late great Judy Garland, in her iconic role as Dorothy in the movie The Wizard of Oz. “There’s no place like home” she said as Dorothy, and it sure is what the Joliet Buccaneers Adult Amateur Football Organization is saying, as they make their way back to Joliet for the first time in nine years. The last time the Buccaneers played in Joliet was in 2007 when the team won the MSFL Eastern Conference Championship at Joliet Memorial Stadium. The Buccaneers beat the Northern Illinois Cowboys 33 to 14 and made their first trip to the MSFL Championship Game, “That was an exciting time said CEO/General Manager Sandra Geib-Ingram. We had been playing great football all year and it was the players that got us to that game said Geib-Ingram. Since that last game at Joliet Memorial Stadium the Buccaneers have had 3 other playoff appearances 2 of which from the MSFL and one with Midwest Football League.
Since 2008 the Buccaneers had been playing their Home games a various cities around the Joliet area (Romeoville, Downers Grove, Lisle and as recently Naperville) Now the Buccaneers have officially announced that they will be playing at Plainfield South High School Cougar Stadium, which is on the west side of Joliet. Just recently two of the local high schools (Plainfield Central and Plainfield South) had their varsity fields renovated by adding field turf and a newly state of the art scoreboard. “We are more than excited, it’s an honor and a privilege to call PSHS HOME”, said Team President and Coach Michael W. Ingram Jr. Majority of our players played at all the local area high schools (Plainfield, Romeoville, Minooka, Bolingbrook, Lockport, Oswego and Joliet) and this opportunity made sense for our organization and its players, said Ingram. The Buccaneers will be able to host 2 Home games this year July 15 and August 5; with hopes of more games the next season (2018) and the next season (2019).
We also want to get back to our roots of being Saturday night n summer attraction for our local community and getting back to supporting local area entertainment when we were playing at Joliet Memorial Stadium said Geib-Ingram. We would have local pre-game and half-time entertainment like Plainfield East Marching Band, Joliet West Marching Band, Gym quest, Rev Dance Studio, Local Boy Scouts Troop 0258 and 0098 and local youth football teams (Bolingbrook Trojans, Romeoville Spartans, Joliet Raiders. It’s important for our organization to be in the City of Champions, because that’s what we’re trying to build here a Championship football team and contender said Head Coach Andre Ward.
