MV COUGARS FOOTBALL
2nd Semester- 2019:
1/2 way…….before you know it, we will be to May and the real beginning of our 2019 journey.
With the end of the semester, a big shout goes to Coach Mellor and his Academic advisory system we have in place for our football players. Tracking student grades, study halls, and contacting of parents are all helping our players become more successful and consistent in the classroom. We constantly preach how many doors good grades open in the future. With the start of a new semester, it is time to get off on the right foot by creating the consistent habits that bring academic success.
It has also been fun to watch our winter sports teams compete. We are all adjusting to life in 6A and as we find the bar set higher, we know more will be required to achieve greatness. To that end, all football players not currently in a winter sport should DEFINITELY be lifting with Coach Elshire after school on M/W/F. Mondays and Fridays are at 3 and Wednesdays at 2. The winter is a HUGE GROWTH time for our players. When combined with correct eating and sleep habits and the avoidance of foreign substances, our players should be creating bigger, stronger versions of themselves. You can’t get this time back! Commit!
Our Captain’s Council will also start meeting in March for those who have applied as we begin our journey of developing strong program leaders. This has proven extremely valuable in past years and I look forward to starting another book with this group.
Finally, the winter can often be a time when players find themselves bored and begin to think about poor choices. Please continue to talk to your son, know what they are up to and who they are hanging out with, and keep them busy and engaged! We will too!
The Spring and Summer calendar is currently up. Start to mark your calendars now!
