2022 SEASON OUTLOOK

This is the first season for College Heights football, and they will be led by head coach Travis Burk. “I love College Heights,” Burk says, “One of my daughters graduated from here, so I’m very excited to continue to be a part of such a great community by starting the football program.” College Heights will be playing 8-player football this fall, and will play their home games at Joplin High School. Since the announcement of the start of the program in December, Burk has had a chance to be around some of his new players. “These athletes are great kids with amazing character,” he says of his team, “We will have some speed and the athletes are working hard in the weight room. They are quick learners, which we need, being a first-year program.” Burk says the team will run a spread offense – with sophomore Logan Decker at quarterback – and a 3-2 defense. I know some of these guys from watching them play other sports. There are some real athletes here. It will take a little time for them to get in the groove, but I look for the Cougars to figure it out and be competitive this fall. “We expect the addition of football to be a blessing, not only to our players and school, but for our community as well,” coach Burk finishes, “We expect to play hard every down and our goal is to improve every week. A lot of our guys have never played football before. For some of them, it will be their first time putting on pads. This will be an exciting first year for College Heights football.”
