Even though the season ended months ago, it really never has the feel of finality until the banquet. It has officially ended as of last night. The reason I am writing this post to my personal blog instead of the Blackcat Football site is this is more of a personal message.
I wanted to take a couple minutes to say thank you to the players, parents and my fellow coaches for another great season. I had a great time. We may have not had the record that we all wanted but it is a season that I will always remember.
This group of seniors were truly a special group. I was especially attached to this group I had coached the seniors since they were in junior high. They are group of fine young men and will go onto great things in their future. It is a group like this that makes you come back year after year as a coach. I am going to miss them, not just on the field but off.
We also had a great group of parents that supported us as staff and helped with so much during the season. Thank you!
To the coaches, we had a good year. But, we have a lot of work to do before next year. It is the beginning of a new era in Blackcat Football. It is one that I am very excited for. I am ready.
