The Newcomerstown Cheerleaders are trying to encourage school spirit.

One way is by selling yard sales for $15 each.

"We want to encourage Trojan Pride in Newcomerstown by displaying yard signs," said Newcomerstown Cheerleader Advisor Donna Yoder. "There are four signs available for community members that do not have a student in school but would like to show their support for the Trojans. We can do customized signs for each sport. We can do the signs for the youth cheerleaders and football players as well."

Forms to place an order are located at the middle and high school. Orders are due Aug. 24.

Also, the cheerleaders are planning to have each home football game have a theme. The theme for the Caldwell game is "Go Big Orange!" and they are encouraging everyone to come to the game wearing orange.

For the week of Aug. 27, when the Trojans play the River Pilots, the them is "We Back The Men in Black!" and everyone is encouraged to wear black to the game.
