Air Force Falcons,
Saturday's games were a challenge in which both teams face two opponents, the opposing team and the weather. The 4th Grade Falcons had an amazing pre-game prep in cold rainy conditions and impressed us with their focus and discipline. I am proud of the 4th Grade Falcons for their attitude and efforts pre-game and their heart and fight during the game. As a first year team playing the two toughest teams in our division we can be proud of our fight. As we improve and make the necessary changes I expect victory in the next two games for our 4th Grade Falcons.
The 8th Grade Falcons faced two challenging opponents on Saturday as well in the opposing team and weather. The 8th Grade Falcons were able to achieve victory over the opposing team by fighting courageously through the weather. The mental and physical discipline demonstrated by our Falcons is to be commended, as they overcame much adversity in route to a win. Many players answered the call of duty by stepping up their performance when placed into the line of battle.
Falcons, we are a team of young men training in the sport of football and in the art of servant leadership. All of our young men are gaining valuable skills in each, under the leadership of our outstanding coaches. Healthy, successful growth and development of character involves proper handling of success as well as adversity. We are indeed blessed to have a wonderful environment in which to learn how to successfully navigate success and adversity.
