The Limestone JFL is a football organization based in Bartonville, Illinois. Established in 1969 with two teams, we have grown to 5 tackle football divisions, 3 flag football age groups and also cheerleading. Nicknamed the Rockets, approximately 185 tackle and 60 flag football players sign up yearly for the tackle and flag programs.
