Football schedules not being sold by high school
Steamboat Springs Athletics Director Bruce Crowhurst wants residents to know that neither the high school nor the Steamboat Springs Booster Club has authorized football schedules reportedly being sold around town.
Any fund-raising event that benefits prep sports goes through Crowhurst's office or through Ernie Jenkins and the Booster Club. Neither has authorized the sale of the schedules, meaning the money from their sale does not directly go to help the Sailors, Crowhurst said.
Crowhurst received some calls from people regarding the schedules, prompting him to look into their sales and who is doing the selling. Fund-raising for the football team is scheduled to start later this summer, preceding the 2003 season, Crowhurst said.
