After 30 or so kickarounds and off-season workouts, we assembled this past Monday for Tryouts. And now we have selected two teams for the season. The coaches and I are so excited to get going, and are thrilled with the effort, the attitude, and the leadership we see on display, and know that this is promising for the season.
Every day after practice we have tried to hand out Cory, the Cougar, to a player, in recognition of that player being the Cougar of the Day. The honor will go to those players who embody characteristics we want to see in players - selflessness, leadership, effort and hard work, excellence, teamwork, encouragement, positivity. A player gets to take Cory home, or carry around school, and take pictures to post to social media.
We have had many players in the program honored over the Winter. And this past Saturday, we honored Sylvia Howell for stepping up BIG TIME in her first scrimmage, playing fearlessly, and to the best of her abilities, and playing a full 80 minutes, against excellent competition.
I look forward to honoring more players on these pages over the course of the season!
