History

In 1968, Pastor Lee Barry and the late Cecil Lewelling, Sr. joined forces to start a youth football program.  When the idea began, Cecil stated that he could get the kids but did not have the funds for the equipment.  Mr. Barry said that “if you get the kids, I’ll get the equipment.”  Mr Lewelling went door-to-door recruiting youths to play on the first football team.  Mr. Barry kept his word and supplied all new uniforms and equipment to suit up 25 kids.  So, in 1969, the Taneytown Tigers took the field as the first youth football team in Taneytown.  In 1970, the cheerleaders were introduced and coached by the late Jeannette Lewelling.  Mrs. Lewelling made all of the cheerleading outfits for the first few years.  Now, over the years, the league has expanded and changed from the Taneytown Tigers to the FSK Jr. Eagles Football, Inc.

Philosophy

Our goal is to develop well-rounded young men and women who learn not only the fundementals of football & cheer, but also the importance of education and teamwork in an atmosphere conductive to developing sound mind, body and character - all while enjoying their experience here.  We practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness.  Our program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond the playing days, such as self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership and good sportsmanship.
