TRIMBLE COUNTY, Ky. (WDRB) -- More time has been put on the clock for the Trimble County High School football team.

The district canceled the season this week because there weren't enough players to form a team, but there could now be enough interest to save the season.

Students showed up to Trimble County High School on Friday night wanting to join the team. The district said it needs to see who's serious enough to reverse its decision.

"We are searching for the commitment from the people that are going to be on the team," Superintendent Steve Miracle said. "It's not just showing up for this meeting. It's not just showing up for practice on Monday."

Twenty-three students showed up to the meeting, including nine original players.

"We expected people to be here," said Cody Johnson, who wants to be on the team. "Some of them couldn't due to other things, but we also had people that we didn't even think, didn't even know, show up and say they wanna play."

The district will make the final call on Monday but says player's skill levels will factor into its decision.
