Twelve Italy Gladiators receive All-District honors in football


Twelve Italy Gladiators received All-District honors for their efforts on the grid-iron this past season. The Gladiators finished with a 5-5 record, under third season head coach Craig Bales, and made an impact with the All-District selection committee during their return to 2A football.

With an emphasis on practicing hard, the Gladiators will return five Juniors that received All-District recognition to next season’s squad. With the defense having ten games under their belts with first year defensive coordinator Jeff Richters, and with a Junior Varsity squad moving up that received the same tutelage, sky’s the limit for next season’s Gladiators.
