Father of David Jones. Going to Atlanta for the Nike Camp to get a gauge of how David stacks up against national competition. He graded out in the top 80 percent.
The Jasper game is always a lot of fun. It will be interesting to see if we can continue with the same attitude we finished with last year.
I’m sitting in my third block class thinking about the big game at Tyner tonight. I’m very confident in my teammates and hope we pull out this big win. It will be a great atmosphere. As Coach Grider says “you play like you practice,” and man we have worked our butts off this week in practice to get ready.
When we started back in August I thought it was going to be hard to play on this team. It really took more of being determined and a will to play.
It’s here! Football season…the best of all seasons. I take a moment to make sure I take a deep breath and soak it all in so that I can tell myself in March, when football seems so far away, that I did in fact enjoy it as much as I should have. No better way to start the season than by playing your biggest rival. The atmosphere is electric. I think CoachT.com helps fuel rivalries. The crowd for this game is the biggest I have seen in many years. Probably since the early-to-mid 1990s. The Warriors say they are back…we will see. The Pirates are back too…to defend a crown. Buckle your straps and hold on tight. It’s going to be a wild ride tonight.
This week we play Lookout Valley, away. After work today I took (daughter) Victoria to gymnastics and went to the new SPHS gym to help the other volunteers frame pictures for the new Hall of Fame. Vic came by the Gym after football practice around 6 p.m., and then he went to pick up Victoria from gymnastics. He was really tired and said that today was one of the hottest days of practice.
