But there’s no rule that says they have to.
Last year the Kimbrough family went all out, purchasing four preseason shout-outs to their favorite player, Muskegon Catholic’s Jake Kimbrough, in the 2014 Local Sports Journal high school football preview section.
“Go Jake #88,” said one ad from Mom, Ted and Lauren. “Go Jakey – #88. I love you,” wrote GG, “your littlest, biggest fan.”
“We’re proud of you #88 Jake Kimbrough!” wrote Grandpa and Grandma Keiser. Another ad, from several proud uncles and aunts, said “Go Green and Gold! Go Jake #88!”
Jake Kimbrough may have blushed a little at first, but you can bet he loved seeing all the support from family and friends as his team embarked on what turned out to be a state championship season.
Make sure your favorite high school football player gets a personalized shout out in the 2015 edition of the football preview section, which will be published in less than a month.
Player shout-outs cost $25 per ad, and can be a maximum of 25 words. Proceeds from the ads will help Local Sports Journal maintain its coverage of high school football, and a host of other prep sports, during the upcoming school year.
