PALO VERDE FOOTBALL
I can't believe that the season is already over! After enjoying the energy and excitement of the Super Bowl, I wish we had a few more weeks to go. Things were really coming together. I'm sure many of our players feel the same way, I know my two boys do. When I reflect on the past 4 months, it is very clear that we had a fantastic season filled with great fun, team activities, life lessons and sportsmanship.
The emphasis is on being a great "Student Athlete".
THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF DIV. 1 ATHELETES IN THIS VALLEY,
MOST NEVER SEE A DOWN OF "H.S. FOOTBALL." LETS MAKE THAT CHANGE!
MEN, THINK ABOUT YOUR GRADES AND CHARACTER.
"DON'T CHEAT YOURSELF SON."
Being a participant in an organized competitive sport sponsored by your parents is a privilege not a right.
Student athletes must balance the roles of being a full-time student and a full-time athlete.
~ Coach Christenesen
All of the coaches thoroughly enjoyed developing the young men and watching everyone's hard work translateinto success. We battled through injuries on both levels, But we over came them. Trust me,
A lot of kids, (about 120 kids just in the Rookie division) Did not get to play in the NYFL Championship game.
Our kids had an awesome play off week and a made it into the Championships,
I know that I speak for the rest of the coaches when I say that I think that we have the best Student / Athletes, and parents in the entire NYFL.
TO ALL OF OUR STUDENT ATHLETES.
I'M PROUD OF YOU.
LEARNING TO BALANCE
ACADEMICS AND ATHLETICS IS TOUGH
BUT AS YOU WILL CONTINUE TO SEE
WELL WORTH THE HARD WORK.

Character and football go hand in hand. When you join a football team, you become part of something bigger than yourself. You have the chance to change your life forever.
To be successful at it though, you will need a good work ethic, respect, and discipline.
You will need to show loyalty, responsibility, and determination. For you to help your team you will also need cooperation, commitment, and consistency.
One important thing we will work on all season is Honoring the Game. To help us remember exactly what that means, we will talk about respecting ROOTS. Each letter in ROOTS stands for an important part of our sport that we must respect.
R stands for Rules. Rules keep the game fair. I want you to play by the rules, even when you think you won’t get caught if you break them.
O is for Opponents. Without opponents, we could have no game. A good opponent pushes us to do our best, so we should be grateful for our opponents. I promise that I will show respect for opposing coaches and teams, and I expect you to do the same.
O is for Officials. Respecting officials can be the most difficult part of Honoring the Game. Officials have a very hard job, keeping the game safe and fair for both teams. Officials are not perfect (just like coaches, athletes and parents!) and sometimes they will make calls that are not in our favor, but I want you to show respect for officials, and I promise that I will, too.
T is for Teammates. A big part of playing our sport is being part of a team. Later in life you will often be part of a team, and it is important to learn to work together. When you are on a team, your words and actions – before, during and after practices and games – reflect not only on you, but also on your teammates and coaches. So treat them as you would want them to treat you. I want you to encourage and support each other on and off the playing field.
S is for Self. Some people only Honor the Game when their opponents do, but I want us to Honor the Game no matter what the other team or its fans do. We set our own internal standards, and we live up to them no matter what.
If you do these five things, you are Honoring the Game. You and your teammates will get the most out of our season, and you will help advance the great traditions of our sport.
