The Jags are ready to kick off a new season and get back to the winning tradition that Falls Church football has established over the last couple of seasons. The Jags success over the last few years is a direct reflection of the hard work that is put into the offseason conditioning program and the 7-on-7 passing league that provides extra practice in the spring. The Jags have put in the work and now it is time to do something with it as expectations are at an all-time high. The senior class of 2016 looks to lead the Jags to victory and continue the winning tradition and pride that is being established at Falls Church.

This spring season for sports kicked off with a pretty fresh start for many teams as they began their first game of 2015 in March. As time quickly sped up, teams, along with their coaches, continued to practice as much as they could before they went head-to-head with their opponents. Through many excitements of winning, struggles of losing, their teams still stuck together through thick and thin throughout the season until the end of the school year.
