|2021 Spring Football 6th Grade Verona Wildcats|
6th Grade Wildcats,
It was a very fun crazy, shortened, alternate Spring 6th Grade Football Season! On behalf of the Coaches, it was fun to watch a lot of new players come out and play this great game of football. The kids did a great job all season of improving, working hard in practice, getting to know new teammates and competing. Since I did not get to last night at the post-game festivities:
-Thank you to all the parents for getting all of your players there to practices (especially the jam-packed pre-season out at Keva), the Gaesames and nice and early for warm-ups so we could be ready to go. Thank you for your patience in trying to get everything figured out for the alternate season, fall should be a well oiled machine and hopefully more back to "normal"...
-Thank you to all of the Coaches: Brett Wepking, Jay Genin, Jeff Jagla, Mike Weisensel, Mike Lambe, Pete Stremlow & Tom Jonjak for all of the time working with these kids, teaching them the fundamentals and getting them ready to play.
-Thank to Amber Nelson for all of her work in organizing the team activities and volunteers
-Thank you to all of the family members for helping with Game days, field markers, scoreboard, etc.
-Thank you to the "team photographer" Erin Blodgett (see attached)
-Thank you to our last minute "Field Striping Crew" of Jeff Jagla, Shane Grady, Tom Jonjak & Mike Lambe who without them the last game doesn't happen, in learning how to paint a field with the sun going down the night before yesterdays game! (just glad the rain did not wash it away...)
We have game film that we will try and get posted and out to everyone so stay tuned.
Equipment Return - stay tuned for day/time to return all of your players equipment (Helmet, shoulder pads, black practice jersey, black game jersey, orange game jersey)
Again, it was a lot of fun with the team this season. Happy early Mother's Day to all of the Moms! Thank you for the opportunity to Coach all of these players and we look forward to seeing all of them and more back for the Fall Football season!
