Salute to military at Clippers game
A special salute to service members is set for the home opener for the Columbiana Clippers football team Thursday against Western Reserve.
Football players from both teams will wear special jerseys. Words such as duty, honor and country will replace names traditionally on the back of team jerseys. One hundred twenty football players will stand in a special formation and welcome military members, who will be escorted onto the field by the color guard and Youngstown State University President Jim Tressel.
