As many of you know, our Tri-Town family has lost a significant piece of our organization. Our Vice President, Matt Derk, passed away on July 28th. Some very quick decisions were made about practices right away and we understand that many were confused and upset about the way information was getting out. Our first priority was to look out for the privacy of his wife and children. We were all very busy with helping and preparing things for this week and perhaps did not communicate as effectively as some may have wished. Please know that it was not our intention and things will continue to run smoothly as we continue to process what has happened.
This is a very difficult time for many of us. Most of us have never had to deal with something like this and we are doing our best to be respectful and appropriate to everyone involved. The outpouring of love and support for Kristy and the boys has been incredible. Through this difficult time, Tri-Town has proven to us once again that it’s not just a football field, but a family.
Please continue to respect the privacy of the Derk family as they continue to grieve.
