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 have all been busy with helping and preparing things for this week and haven’t communicated as effectively as some may have wished. Please know that this was not our intention and things will begin to run smoothly as soon as we all have time to process what has happened.

Padded practices will start for football players on Aug. 4th. Cheer coaches have contacted their squads with practice information. We will have grief counselors available at the field beginning at 5pm to talk to any parent or athlete. Our coaches also plan to address this with each of their teams. We, as an organization, believe that honesty is the best policy. Some very tough subjects will be addressed at an age appropriate level. Please speak with your child before practice on Monday. If you do not wish for your child to participate or hear from your head coach, please keep your child home from practice on Monday.

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 family and allow them time to process and grieve all that has taken place.

Funeral services are scheduled for 1pm Saturday, August 2nd at William E. Little Funeral Homes (2150 Carlisle Road, Shiloh). Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Hunter and Hayden Derk Education Fund, c/o Metro Bank, 2100 York Crossing Drive, York, PA 17408.
