Week 5 Recap- The Best Weekend Yet

Good Morning Everyone!

We had a great weekend of football.The weather was amazing and the fans showed a lot of passion. Our players played with their hearts and our cheerleaders could be heard all the way to Richmond Highway! There is nothing like playing at home and hearing the sound of good football. We had a clean sweep at home this weekend. Our 100 Pound lived up to the "game of the week" and won against Vienna, our 115 Pound pulled out another close win against Vienna, and our Anklebiters won their first game of the year with a shutout win against Gainesville. Our 80 pound lost another tough one to Manassas. Each year, we would like our program to win 70% of their games they participate in. After 4 weeks, our program record is 9-11. This puts our percentage as a program at 45% but the season is still not over. Here are a few notes...

*This week is our Homecoming week!! We need you to wear your spirit gear!!! Our cheerleaders will be doing a halftime show and there will be plenty of fish!! We will be selling more T-shirts for parents who would like to purchase some fan gear. They will be on sale so hurry and get yours. We have a limited amount so make sure you get one before it sells out!!!

*Picture Day will be on Friday evening. Please get with your coach for more information!!!

*I want to extend a huge shout out to our Thumbs Up program which helps our program with fundraising, but they do more than that. These ladies do an amazing job providing our kids with small gifts and snacks to keep our kids excited and rewarding them for their hard work!!!! Also, our concession stand staff gives their time consistently! When you get a chance, please stop past the concession stand table and thank them!!!
