RRL Jr. Indians Football

RRL Jr. Indians Football is a member of the Northern Illinois Football Conference (NIFC). We have four divisions of football; heavyweight, middleweight, lightweight and flyweight. These divisions of football have a major emphasis on playing time, so all eligible athletes will play; however, players will earn positions and slightly more playing time.

Junior Indians Football

The Roscoe Rockton Junior Indians are  a proud member of the Stateline Junior High Football Conference (SJHFC). We are the feeder program for District 207 Hononegah High School. For this reason, we prepare our 7th and 8th graders for high school earlier and call them,  "The Junior Indians." This level of football plays all eligible athletes; however, players will earn a position and more playing time based on skill, attitude, effort, teamwork and sportsmanship. Substitution and cross training are encouraged to develop non-starting players.
