About the Jr Spartans

Francis Howell Central Jr Spartan Football is a community based football program for young athletes who reside in the Francis Howell Central High School attendance zone.

FHC Jr Spartan Football is part of the Jr GAC Youth Football League.

It is important to understand that the Jr GAC feeds the GAC (Gateway Athletic Conference), which is one of the largest high school athletic conferences in MO, and it is a member of the MSHSAA (Missouri State High School Athletic Association. You can learn about the GAC by clicking here.

Attendance zone rules are very important and are strictly enforced by the Jr GAC, and thus the Jr Spartans. 

The Jr Spartans are affiliated with the FHC High School Football Program.  We share an Executive Board.

The Jr program employs FHC high school language, playbook, and intent whenever and wherever applicable and possible. 

Furthermore, the high school conducts an important first few days of the two-week Jr Spartan Summer Training Camp every July. High school players are also assigned to mentor each Jr Spartan team.
