Trivia: The Little Devils made me do it

The Little Devils exercised their brains not their brawn at their February “couch potato” trivia night.

The youth sports organization, founded in 1958, provides children ages 5 to 14 a chance to learn how to play football as well as chearleading and wrestling.

"We are a nonprofit organization, so every penny we raise goes toward equipment, uniforms, grounds keeping and other expenses involved in running a program of this size," said Justin Royer, assistant coach and board member.

He was a Little Devil when he was 12 and 13. Now, he’s the proud father of two Devils football players and wrestlers, Tyler and Riley, students at Union Elementary in Belleville.

“We have anywhere from 150 to 250 football players every year with almost 100 cheerleaders,” said Justin. “Both boys and girls are welcome to wrestle.”

To make a donation to the club, go to the Little Devils website at

Early registration for the upcoming football/cheerleading season will be May 2 at the all-purpose building in Citizens Park. Early registration fees are $110 for football and $75 for cheerleaders. We are also hosting a golf tournament fundraiser on June 6. All details can be found at
