Medina will field a 13U team in the Western New York Boys of Summer Fall League which will run from this Saturday until October 25.

Medina will open the season with a doubleheader Saturday at the Barre Town Park with games at 12:30 and 3 p.m.

“We will be playing 10 games most of which will be at Barre Town Park.  Our 12u team will be moving up to 13U rules for fall in preparation for next spring tournament and league season,” said John Dieter who is coaching the team along with Mike Gray, Shaun Smith and Adam Papaj.

“We go from 70/50 to 90/60 fields and feel it is good experience for the boys to get a taste of what next year will bring,” added Dieter.  “With no organized football this fall many of our players were looking to continue playing to keep active.  Most of our players are returning with the addition of a few new players added after we held tryouts a few weeks back.”

The Medina team roster includes Tyler Kroening, Brody Fry, Carter Woodworth,  Preston Woodworth, Jimmy Dieter, Vinny Gray, Colton Smith, Bady Christaansen, Lukas Grimes, Luke Duffina, Aidan Papaj, Ryleigh Culver and  Ryan Pegelow.
