Thanks for checking into the website for another exciting season of UnioNCounty Football!

Over this past Spring I discovered a number of technical glitches in my website. Aside from changing lines of code, it appears that website will need to be upgraded after this season for a number of reasons.

Due to the technical issues I had to forego publishing UC Pick'em this season. It was not an easy decision as I know many of you enjoyed it and I did as well. Thank you all for understanding and supporting the website- I look forward to providing a better-equipped website in the near future.
