Congrats to Blake Warner who signed to play football for The U.S Air Force Academy
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
Hard to believe that 2019 is wrapping up and a new decade is just around the corner. Hopefully the next few weeks allows everyone to take a deep breath, recognize the importance of family and friends, and reflect on what is good in our lives and create plans to work on the things that need fixing!
Just 4 weeks in the semester will remain when we return to school. These are the grades that matter! We have started our Academic Progress Monitoring and Wednesday study halls to help nudge players into working on their grades and opening long term opportunities. Over 10 college coaches have passed through my classroom this month and they all ask the same questions:
1) What type of person is the student-athlete?
2) What is their GPA?
3) What other sports do they play?
Speaking of other sports, Winter Sports are in full swing now. We have a lot of guys playing hoops, wrestling, and even skiing! Good luck to them all as they work on other skills and compete! If you are not in a winter sport, the time not working on academics should be spent in improving their strength, size, and speed. We will be opening the weight room after school starting in the month of January for extra opportunities. That schedule will be out soon.
Finally, a spring and summer schedule is live and ready to go on the website. As families begin to plan vacations etc, please be sure to look. Linfield this year will be right after school gets out from June 13-16.
I am blessed to work at a school and with families and players that care. As I reflect on all that has happened in 2019, I do it with a smile and with a determination to make 2020 even better.
Play Hard - Play Smart - Play Together!
