Thanks to every parent that helped with the team meals, especially Desi McLaughlin, every fan that traveled to a home or away game, all volunteers for the fresh/soph games, and all the efforts to make UNION FOOTBALL an organization that sets the bar for our school participating in class 3A. We may not be the biggest but there is no reason we cannot be the best.
