Harvey, LA. The Jr. Wildcats needed to be perfect to have a chance in this past weekend's games but was not able to do it as all 3 teams dropped games to the the New Orleans Panthers. In the first game of the day, the 11 & 12 planned to use their speed to run past the bigger New Orleans Panthers. However, the Panthers Passing and running proved too much for the 11 & 12 as they lost 35-0. In the second game, the 9 & 10's took a 2 point lead into the 4th quarter despite several questionable calls going agains them. In the end it was the Panthers grinding out a controversial 1st down on 4th and short at the Jr. Wildcats 3 yard line that would prove the difference in the game coming up with the last minute TD to win 19-14. The last game featured the 7 & 8's. Although the game was close initially, another controversial call changed the momentum in the game and the Panthers went on the win the game 19-6. Our kids gave a valiant effort in all 3 games. Unfortunately, questionable calls can take the wind out of a team. We will put these loses behind us and get ready to play Jr. Wildcats Football and come out with a win this week as we return home for a 2PM kickoff against Oakside.
Parents, we need your help with player practice and game attendance. Practice is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays. We ask players to report to practice at 5:30. Player stretching begins at 5:45. Stretching is importing because it helps cutdown on the possibility of muscle related injuries. Practice begins at 6PM and last until 7:30. We ask that players make a minimum of 2 practices a week. As coaches, we will play the players that come to practice. Coaches make every attempt to give every player at least 1 play in the games, however, we will not put any players who are not prepared to play on the field. The more players that regularly attend practice, the easier it is for coaches to make sure that everyone plays.
On game days, we ask our players to report 1 to 1 1/2 hours before the scheduled game time. This is done to give the coaches time to verify player books for each team. It also gives the coaches time to get the players outfitted and also give the team time to properly stretch and make any last minute game adjustments. Our teams are undefeated approaching the midpoint of the season. The only way for us to continue that success is with your help and cooperation. If your son won't make it to a game, please let us know in advance. Working together is the only way we will achieve our goal; and that is for all 4 of our teams to make it to the Super Bowl.
Parents, while we encourage all parents to participate by attending practice and games, we have to draw the line at having parents on the sidelines on gamedays. Unless you are on the coaching staff for your child's team or have volunteered to work the down marker and chains for home games, no parents will be allowed on the sidelines for both home and road games. If you are not on the coaching staff and come to the sideline, you will be asked to return to the stands. We appreciate your cooperation with this request
