CONGRATULATIONS FOR A TERRIFIC SEASON: Win-6 Loss-2
A few words from your Team Mom Kristin Kfox
We may not have walked off the field with the state saying we were number one but those boys are #1. They had an incredible season.
They beat an undefeated team.
They made a team who thought this was going to be no problem and who mercy ruled us work damn hard for their score and surprised and upset them.
Don't hang your heads in defeat. Hold your heads up high because you all made this possible. Your hard work, your perserverance, your effort, your will to win was brought to this game and left out on the field.
Out of 15 teams, YOU were #4. #4 DO YOU EVEN REALIZE HOW HUGE THAT IS? That was all you 9U GSE! YOU all did that! Not anyone else YOU. That's something to be proud of.
So don't you dare hang your heads, don't you dare dwell on what could have been done differently. You use this to fuel your soul with a desire to win. To make sure the next time you hit that field it will be with more passion and fire than anyone has ever seen.
What an incredible football family we have. Coaches, thank you for taking the time to get to know each and everyone one of these boys and motivating them with what worked for them as an individual. Parents, you're commitment to be a part of this team, win, lose or draw has made this season even more fantastic. Without you, we couldn't do what we love to do. Thank you each and every one of you
