When Libertyville's football team opens its season at home Friday night against Barrington, the Wildcats will wear camouflage jerseys in tribute to former Wildcat football players who have served or are currently serving in the military.

These members will be introduced before kickoff and will serve as honorary captains for the game. Donations will be collected for the Wounded Warrior Project. Camo T-shirts that are replicas of the jerseys and camo 'do rags are being sold during lunch hours at the high school. The proceeds will also be sent to the Wounded Warrior Project.
