Week 2 Recap

Good Morning Everyone!

Saturday provided us with some great weather and some great football. Even though we were on the road, it was good to see our cheerleaders encourage our boys and our fans trying to rally behind them. We struggled this week as a program but our determination will keep us going. Our 100 Pound stayed undefeated while our Anklebiters, 80 Pound, and 115 Pound teams look to rebound after tough losses. Each year, we would like our program to win 70% of their games they participate in. After 2 weeks, our program record is 3-5. This puts our percentage as a program at 38% but that percentage will get better. Here are a few notes...

*Our Krispy Kreme fundraiser has kicked off. You have about a week and a half left to sell. We need everyone to try their best to help raise funds for our program. 

*Please remember that we must conduct ourselves appropriately at games. We are here for the kids and more importantly the kids are always watching how we behave. If any issues arise, please inform a board member. We will not tolerate any behavior that will bring negativity to our program.

*Our cheerleaders are a critical part of our program. As much as we want to pay attention to the football game, they are working hard to provide an exciting environment. When you get a chance at games, show them some love and participate in the cheers when asked to!!!
