Football Players Urge Teachers To Settle Contract Dispute

Coming off an 11 win season, hopes are high again for Ottawa High School football.  The growing question mark is will the team even take the field?

Over a dozen varsity players gathered outside the Ottawa Knights of Columbus Hall Tuesday as some of their teachers met inside to talk contract negotiations.  The teacher’s union could possibly vote to authorize a strike within a week or two.

The teacher’s strike in 2009 forced that year’s Pirate football team to forfeit its last four games of the season and miss out the playoffs.
