Jupiter Christian football to play 2011 home games at John I. Leonard High 

By Matt Porter

The latest home for Jupiter Christian football is in the middle of Palm Beach County.

The small Jupiter private school, which lacks an on-campus football field, will play its three home games at John I. Leonard High in Greenacres. Jupiter Christian Athletic Director Scott Loud said his school reached a one-year agreement with John I. Leonard after failing to come to agreements with several schools closer to home.

The first game will be against district rival Glades Day at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24. The two schools have faced each other in the playoffs in each of the last two seasons and met at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter for last year’s Class 1B regional final.

Loud said his school considered a rematch at Roger Dean Stadium, but uncertainty in forecasting ticket sales forced it to look elsewhere.

The other two home games will be Friday, Oct. 14 against Pompano Beach-Highlands Christian and Friday, Nov. 4 against Coral Springs Christian. Both will start at 7 p.m.

John I. Leonard’s location may help overall attendance for the three games. John I. Leonard is approximately a 40-minute drive from Jupiter Christian, Pompano Beach-Highlands Christian, Coral Springs Christian and a little more than 50 minutes from Glades Day.

Since forming a program in 2002, Jupiter Christian also has played home games at Dwyer in Palm Beach Gardens, Benjamin’s upper school in Palm Beach Gardens and lower school in North Palm Beach, King’s Academy in West Palm Beach and most recently, South Fork High in Stuart.
