Upcoming Events

Week of August 7th

An important message from Coach McGriff:

Man does time fly! This week we will begin our regular school schedule and try our best to get our student athletes home early to study.
This week we will have our first day of school, play in an official scrimmage, and begin watching film, conducting study hall, and lifting weights during 7th period. 

  • All athletes should be registered for 7th period with Coach McGriff. If you are not registered please contact your guidance counselor to be added. This will ensure athletes get credit for their work, allow coach McGriff to monitor grades, and give athletes time to go see other teachers.

  • All athletes should be dressed out for practice by 2:00 PM before we start team activities.

  • Saturday we will play Rickards in a half of football at Leon High school. The game starts at 9 but athletes are required to arrive by 7:00am.

  • Athletes that miss practice this week will not be permitted to play in this week's scrimmage.

Parents should contact Alan Morales if your child is experiencing any health issues.
