Fallon is becoming a hot spot for youth football.
After the city hosted several Sierra Youth Football League jamborees at the high school, Fallon turns to Pop Warner to hold the league’s second straight annual jamboree event. The Al Barbieri Jamboree visits the Lahontan Valley on Saturday as the official weigh-ins for the Sagebrush Empire League at the Churchill County Regional Park.
About 60 teams from Northern Nevada and California will converge this weekend as programs get their season started with the weigh-ins while also participating in three scrimmages before the regular season begins next month.
Fallon will be fielding teams in several divisions this year from Tiny Mite to Unlimited. Fallon will have teams compete in Mitey Mite, Jr. PeeWee, PeeWee, Jr. Midget and Midget this season.
Games start on Sept. 6.
