 LTI vs Nooksack 14-12

Congratulations LTI players on a very physical game played last Saturday at Civic field. We knew this would be a tough game.  On Offense the William to Crew combo was very successful 2 Huge TD scores then the EP’s one to Crew and to Ryan proved to be the difference in the score of today game. We did have some big 1st down receptions To Kole and also Will, Taivin, Jamison,  Gavin and others fighting hard for every yard,  we seemed to have a difficult time with the big’s from Nooksack. Both teams played a great game. Kole was recognized as the BIG Hitter as he came out and made some great tackles on the Noosack Runners. With a few bumps and bruises LTI comes out on top. Yes We have many things to work on from the start of a football season to the end. Many times throughout the season we have stressed the importance of good tackling technique, Staying low, keeping your head up, items that will help reduce chance of injury.Your safety is important. This is a great game it requires extra work, we ask ourselves are we doing all we can? If so That’s all you can do. We truly enjoy the moments we have shared with each player on our Team. Let’s Play Hard and Have Fun

Thank You

 Coach Rick

LTI vs Mt Baker 27-7

An Early wake-up call and LTI comes out hitting hard. Somehow we avoided the big rain as it waited for the afternoon games! The LTI defense kept Baker from crossing the goal line until the last minutes of the game again this week. This weeks Hammer award goes to Matt he continues to get into the backfield and destroy the other Teams plays. Great Work Matt. Our Offense today led by William was hard to stop we had scores by Taivin, Ryan, Crew, Zach, Kole, one of todays game great moments was the kicked PAT as seen on the video posted above. Our players and coaches are proud of that moment as we have not practiced it to many times Great Effort  by ALL. Our Line when choosing to do so is very physical and hard to stop. Not much glory for the players in the trenches but it is a very very important part of this game. Our Players do improve each week and we work hard to help with opportunity for a moment in this Great Game. WE HAVE 3 Games Remaining in this Season.........Wow that went by way to fast. Awards night RSVP Sheets will go out this week and next, also player Vote sheets for Individual Player Voted Awards. 

Thank You AGAIN TO ALL LTI Players and Family

 LTI comes out strong with back to back weeks where our Defense scores safety’s. LTI TEAM Defense held Blaine to a single score on the day. Huge football hits from every LTI player was our game plan. Ryan Kleindel was LTI’s Big Hitter he helped  lead us to a 28-6 first W of the season. It's great to see so many players gaining confidence and applying what they are learning in practice. LTI offense led by  William & Jamison along with Taivin, Crew, Luke, Kole, Zach, Mason K, Matt, Gavin and more were able to knock off big chunks of yardage. Lets not forget those who play the O/D LINE GREAT WORK Andrew, Case, Coleson, Denver , Gavin,  Jared, Kaden,  Lucas, Matt, Moses, Roman , Ty. The second effort today was huge by each LTI player.

09/19/15      GAME 2 PHOTOS NOW POSTED SEE PHOTO TAB!

Players & Parents

It was windy/wet and our LTI TEAM had another rough start to a football game. We strongly feel that the light came on in the second half and our players are now ready to get after it on the football field. with a first half score of 19-0.....LTI offense and Defense scored 17 unanswered points. Although the clock ran out of time and we came up just short of our first win of the season our players stepped up their game. Some Great offensive play came from William, Taivin, Crew, Jamison & others including some big blocks from the O Line. On Defense every player came in and made a huge difference in field position and ball control. Two second half safety's, great tackles and a great second half effort has the entire team fired up. Our Players continue to improve. Yes we have work to do, yep this is part of LIFE's lessons......We are Thankful we have an opportunity to play this great GAME.

 GREAT WORK LTI

Thank You Coach Rick

09/12/15                            GAME 1 PHOTOS NOW POSTED SEE PHOTO TAB!

Players & Parents

A tough start to our football season, but our LTI players came out and gave some great individual efforts. As a team we did not complete some important items that we work on in practice every day. We as coaches needed to make a few adjustments and the final outcome may have generated a more positive result. We had some big hits on the Day from Taivin, Kaden, Roman, Lucas, Jamison, Jared and others. Congratulations to Jared on scooping up the fumble and nearly taking it to the house. We some fun offensive plays and one 4th and long completion from William to Crew was a very positive moment.  Yes we have work to do each week. We truly believe in our players. When we come to practice we work hard and give 100%. This is a contact sport and requires desire, effort and dedication. Our Game Will Improve.

 

Thank You

Coach Rick

JAMBOREE: Coaches Report, 
 
Yes it started out wet, turned windy and finished warm and sunny although most of the community lost power, It looked like our LTI Football Team kept it going to the last play. As we mostly expected the best match-up of the day would come down to the Whatcom Builders formerly Prostock vs LTI. We tried to show them very little of what we have to offer. What a day LTI had from running the ball, throwing the ball, catching the ball, many great tackles, fumble recovery's, great blocking, especially down field on Offense, one block earned the Hammer award to Gavin, he keeps the Hammer until it is awarded to another player. BIG HITTER be the hammer not the nail. The Jamboree is a great time to learn and we feel that each player gained some valuable learning moments today. As previously mentioned our season will be filled with many of these great moments. Again a huge Thank You to all who support our program. Friendly reminders to look at the calendar for our weekly schedule of activity. Also Thank You Parent for having each Player to the field ON TIME!

 10/25/14 FINAL GAME OF OUR SEASON LTI vs. Capstone Lynden........LTI 8-0 WON!  

 On the final game of the season LTI players battled some rain and a very muddy LMS football field but Comes out the winner over a very good LYNDEN Capstone team. ALL LTI Players played a big part in the victory today! The game was ball control and field position. Capstone held the ball for most of the first qtr but our LTI D put up many huge defensive stops. LTI players kept capstone from scoring on that long first drive and each time they held the ball. This was the first time Capstone was shut out all Season. One of the Biggest plays on D was a well executed D coverage and Safety by Gavin to give us the 8-0 lead with minimal time left on the clock. BIG LTI PLAY MAKERS on D today were Matt, Taivin, Ryan, Kaleo, Zach Gavin, Roman, Isaac, Kaleo, ZachLincoln, Riley, Eli, Lane, Tyler, Luke S, Blake, Briggs, Clayton, Kai, Coleson, Luke W, Isaiah. On Offense LTI played a classic old school game of straight ahead on the ground football. We had huge Blocks and Runs by every player on our TEAM some great second efforts by our ball carriers Taivin, Kaleo, Gavin, Ryan, Matt, Colson, were HUGE.....Did we mention our Blockers. LTI players learned over the season that a block on the outside/inside is just as important as a run a pass a catch. In the old days they called a game like this smash mouth football, today this may not politically correct and is NOT how we teach the game to be played well Kinda. We do teach players to be the hammer and not the nail. As the season moved forward all players were able to figure out what this really means!                  GREAT GREAT WORK TO EACH OF OUR PLAYERS! and TO THE MANY PERSONS WHO HELPED OUR PROGRAM EACH WEEK!

FINAL SEASON RECORD 6-2 with our only losses to the first and second place Teams.....

 We Wish Each Player The Very Best As this Season Ends And The Next Begins What Ever They Choose To Play

Coaches Nyles, Mark, Lloyd, Aaron & Rick 

 

 ======================================================================================

10/18/14 GAME # 7 vs. Prostock  6-31 L

 

LTI Comes out strong and gives 100% on the football field. The score does not reflect the effort each player gave on the field.
We had great second and third efforts moving down the field but came up short on a few tries. The great Efforts by Kaleo, Taivin
Gavin, Ryan, Matt, Roman, Luke, Briggs and others were huge. The Lone TD came from a great second and third effort run by Taivin. 
Yes we gave up a few big plays but we put some good hits on them and made many great defensive plays a few players that 
we would like to recognize are Coleson, Ryan, Luke W, Luke S, Briggs, Isaac, Zach, Tyler, Eli &  Roman  Great Work  
Wow how quick the season comes and goes. Each of our players made great improvements this season some had a few 
moments and others had many. It's up to each player to come out with the intention of learning and being ready to work

"THESE ARE YOUNG FOOTBALL PLAYERS EACH IS MAKING GREAT IMPROVEMENTS                                             " IF TODAY ISN'T THEIR DAY MAYBE TOMORROW WILL BE!

GREAT WORK

10/04/14 GAME # 5 vs. Blaine   26-0 WON

 

LTI comes out strong against Blaine!  Another great football game was played by our LTI players. The LTI offense comes out firing on all cylinders. Great Pass plays by Kaleo to Lincoln & Zach moved us down the field for a couple scores, As far as running the ball Taivin, Isaiah, Ryan, Gavin, Lane,  Kaleo,
 Eli all gave great efforts on the football field. Our Defense was hitting very hard Blaine had only two plays moving the ball down the field, One Taivin stopped at the 1 yard line and then the entire D Line blew up the next play and took the ball away…
Another huge play was when Zach made a saving tackle on a stripped ball. Two other huge plays were interceptions from Isaac & Gavin, as for Hard Hits there were many Taivin, Roman, Eli, Isaac,  Coleson, Luke S, Tyler, Zach, Briggs, isaiah and others. 
LTI had multiple takeaways and great team tackling wich led to our third shutout of the season. This Week LYS & LTI have selected Gavin Scott for his hard 
work, dedication, football attitude and extra effort. Great Work this season Gavin :)

09/27/14 GAME # 4 vs. Ferndale   0 -26 L

Early wakeup call and LTI suffers it's first loss of the season!  First and most importantly our thoughts and prayers to the VanDalen family on a speedy recovery  for Grandpa Van Dalen  
God Speed.  LTI & Ferndale capstone came out and played a very physical game. For the majority of the game our LTI players covered the defensive assignments and stopped forward 
progress. LTI held a very good team to their lowest point total of the season as well as giving one of ferndale the most physical game that they have played to date per their coach.
 Capstone was held to 7 points the second half to go with LTI's 6 . A huge shout out to our players for their hard  work and commitment. Todays LTI's big hitters were  Taivin, Ryan, Luke W
 Gavin, Kaleo, Roman, Isaac, Isaiah Matt and more. It was a very tough day for the LTI offense scoring only one TD But our players gave a great effort and learned valuable football / 
life lessons out on the football field.

 WE CONTINUE TO IMPROVE

 

Great Work

09/20/14 GAME # 3 vs. Nooksack   19-0 WON

 

YES another Hot Summer day and we are very Thankful to have these. LTI Offense & Defense played another outstanding game.   
The offense came out and drove down the field with some great play calling, execution and power running. The offense led by Kaleo with power running Taivin, Ryan, Kaleo, Lane
also let's throw in some receptions, one huge catch and run by Lincoln was capped by a little bit of extra of love!!!! Great Pass, catch, run. Zach makes another great XP catch.
 As many of you have seen LTI defense brings their A game each week our many of our players are the hammer and not the nail .  Each week we try to move players around to give them  learning

moments.  At times it may seem a bit crazy but the bottom line is they seem to have fun and are usually in the right spots to make plays. Speaking of making plays, Coleson, Taivin, Matt, Roman

Gavin, Ryan, Kaleo, Isaiah, Lane, Isaac, Eli, Kai and many other players helped keep Nooksack from crossing the goal line . Next week will be a much bigger test as we play the better Ferndale team.
 Coaches are confident in our players ability to compete with any team in this league, we just have to want to do it! play like we practice! Practice Hard..... Play Hard,,,,,,
   Waterboys, Chain Crew, Photographers Jerry Kok, LC School District & LTI Family's we Thank You

09/13/14 GAME # 2 vs. Meridian   34-6 WON

 Another hot summer day! LTI players executed Offense and Defense very well today. Other than one play for Meridians Offense the LTI Team Defense was great, we kept the outside contained, blowing up run plays, intercepting the ball, stripping and recovering fumbles WOW what a Team Effort. It's hard to name one Player in a Team Sport. Every player is improving and making progress in this great game. One LTI Player that stepped up huge today for LTI was Kaleo Jandoc leading the offense down the field, adding tackles and an interception on D great work Kaleo. LTI's Offense had many players take part in todays win Taivin, Eli, Kai, Matt, Gavin, Isaac, Isaiah, Lane, and others. WE had great blocking on the line as well as on the outside corner. Thank You to Dawson and Pete for the continued work keeping the H2O coming to our players.

09/06/14 GAME # 1 vs. Dawson   13-0 WON

 A Great Start to our Season on hot summer day! LTI players kept the Dawson team from scoring and limited their offense to minimal positive yards. The Defensive line was led by Roman who was a huge defensive play maker at our D end positions Matt and Taivin kept the ball from getting outside along with corners Kaleo & Gavin. Big Tackles by Matt, Roman, Ryan, Gavin, Taivin, Kaleo, Isaiah, Issac, Luke W & Coleson helped shut down Last Years league champions. A strip and Fumble recovery by Matt kept the zero score on the board. Our offense was led by Kaleo and LTI executed many of the plays we have learned/practiced the last few weeks. Great runs By Taivin, Ryan, Kaleo & Gavin were sure fun to watch. Yes we will continue learn and give our players many opportunity's have a moment in this great game. A huge Thanks to The Burrows & Winterberg family's for the Juice and snacks. Our day was not a success without our dedicated water staff of Ddawg and Pete they get our players watered down and ready to get back at it!
