The decision to end football was not easy. The decision was made based on review of the potential for a viable schedule within the constraints of a responsible budget. It’s estimated that the football cost the school nearly $500,000 per year to maintain. While there are possible teams for EAC to play, there is also a possibility of added cost to the program. Would football fans be willing to keep the program if it cost them more in taxes? Please respond to the poll below:
