Fort Scott to Terminate Football Program


A Kansas Jayhawk Conference member has made the decision to terminate their football program. Fort Scott Community College has confirmed the 2021 season will be their last. Board of Trustees President Alysia Johnston says they do not have the resources to maintain a football team that would be competitive in the Jayhawk Conference.

 

Since 2016, the Greyhounds are a combined 14-39. In 2019 FSCC had to vacate wins and in the spring 2021 season they had to cancel the season after just three games. Despite the lack of recent success, this is a program with history. The Greyhounds have seen former players make it in the NFL, including Jason Pierre-Paul and Levonta David, who were both on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl team last year. While most of the current players have already begun trying to find new teams, the college will honor scholarships for all football student-athletes who choose to stay and continue their education.
