Mt. Pleasant football thanks contributors
The Mt. Pleasant Lions Football and Cheer Organization was formed in March of 2006 and was under the umbrella of the Mississippi Football League Program (parent organization, American Youth Football).
In January 2007, the Mt. Pleasant Lions Football and Cheer Organization was reorganized and is now under the direction of the Mississippi Football and Cheer League (parent organization, American Youth Football) to include our cheerleading component and restructured to where the league is governed by representatives from each team organization. Our program is a non-profit organization, and is dedicated to serving over 192 (in its two-year inception) youth in the surrounding areas of Mt. Pleasant, Byhalia, Slayden, Lamar, Red Banks, Holly Springs and Ashland in Mississippi as well as Collierville and Rossville in Tennessee.
The mission of our organization is to provide a healthy, safe and goal-oriented environment for both at-risk as well as academically-inclined youth within one community. With this in mind, it is our hope to build a stronger community by helping children today for a brighter tomorrow.

Byers Attendance Center for the 2008-09 school year; responsible for kickstarting a major renovation project at H.W.
