Even that seems new considering the current clubhouse is more than 60 years old.

“Our job is not only to win football games but to build young men and future leaders for our city and for our province and we need a better facility to do that,” said Jeff Yausie, the Hilltops defensive coordinator.

The team hopes to have the clubhouse completed by August of next year.
