(CEDAR HILL) Wednesday on KJFF Sports Talk’s Jefferson County Athletic Director Summer Series, Northwest Athletic Director Jeff Taggart discussed particulars about the upcoming 2019-2020 sports season.

Of note for the fall is the Lions softball team returning to its newly renovated field for home games after playing all of them at the Jefferson County Sports Complex last year.

There is also excitement surrounding Homecoming Week when the football Lions host Lafayette on Friday, September 27th.
