The Week of May 22nd will be our last week for off season Weights and Conditioning. We will Lift Monday the 22nd, Tuesday the 23rd & Wednesday the 24th at 630 am like usual. We then have the rest of that week and the whole of the next week off.
With having that time off please enjoy a nice break but please what ever you do be safe!
We will begin Summer workouts June 6th at 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. We will have Summer workouts Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays, with 7 on 7 on Wednesday nights.
We encourage every one planning on playing Football for us this upcoming season to attend these workouts. As Coach Lewis stated in the parent meeting, we feel that kids need time to be kids and enjoy their summers. This is why the workouts are only 3 days a week and avoid any days close to the weekend. Also with 3 full weeks off with no workouts or practice we encourage those that have not already made plans for vacations to try to work with us on our dates so we can have your kids ready for Football.
These workouts are Important not just for getting in shape and getting stronger or bigger, it creates an opportunity for the players to begin to learn about each other and help each other, push each other to be better than they were the day before. It also gives us coaches time to get to know the players. We can evaluate them and help then in their weaknesses and it provides us time to get to know them personally. These workouts are also important because the HELP PREVENT INJURY!!! Football is a physical and violent sport and injuries can happen at any moment. Working out can help to mitigate the chances of certain common types of Joint and Muscle injuries.
Here are the forms for the bike-a-thon fundraiser this year. Please fill these out and return them to me or one of the other coaches NO LATER THAN April 20th 2017. The sooner you get the consent form to us the sooner we can get an idea of how many will be participating. The Pledge/Donor Sheet can be handed in at anytime up until the morning of the bike ride unless otherwise stated in the future. You can print and fill out or fill them out using the PDF fill in. You can get them to us by email or in person, which ever works best for you. Also we do have some helmets for those who don’t have one and also we try every year to borrow bikes for players who do not have access to bikes. We will reach out to those who can help with bikes when we have a better idea of how many we may need.
Players, Remember this is a good fundraiser for us to help get us the things we need like practice jerseys, practice bags and it also helps pay for all the great food we try to provide you throughout the season so please participate in this for your team!

ATTENTION SENIORS!! I know some of you have mentioned in the past about wanting to play Football after High School. If you want to try we need to act ASAP. There are many many avenues you can take to extend your Football career. This is not an easy task and requires a lot of hard work and dedication on your part. Also it will more than likely require you to be willing to move out of state. There are plenty of small colleges and Jr. Colleges that are in need of hard working athletes willing to relocate to their schools. Get a hold of me or Coach Lewis and let us know. We want to help and want to see you guys achieve your goals.
The 5th Annual Buff stampede (Bike-a-thon) will be April 29th, its a Saturday. We will have a start time and location information in the next couple of days. We will be handing out the participation forms and pledge sheets to the kids over the next couple of weeks.
