Thoughts on 2009
Greetings All, The 2009 Football Season surely goes down as a season to remember! Realignment at Varsity AA making it the toughest AA varsity has ever been, overcoming much adversity with tough on-field and player losses, the spread offense at John Barsby, double-overtime in the playoffs, setting a HS record for most points scored in a game (114) varsity and perhaps the same at JV in the semi's (117), new look uniforms,6 AM Practices, field lights,rain-rain-rain-rain,stormy ferry rides, dismantling Ballenas twice in The Cage, and of course, all those great on-field memories! To the parents, your support is always so very much appreciated!! Burger Nights, manure sale, Bingo, stick-crews, tickets, video of the games, attending games and supporting the guys, rides to 6 AM practices, friendly hello's around the field-Dawghouse-in the community! Wow! John Barsby Football Parents are just awesome! To the players, your effort throughout and especially at the end of the season was inspirational. When you give your full measure, ask for no quarter and give none, you are nearing greatness. When you narrow the difference between your potential and your actual performance to a hairline, you are reaching greatness. You were terrific! Keep being your best on and off of the field and life's W's will take care of themselves. Well Done! To the coaching staff: The players were in large part a reflection of their leadership. Your time and effort cannot be measured in simple words or terms. The program simply does not function without you all. We got better each week and finished the year playing our best ball. It takes special men to give and commit as you have... Outstanding! To All: John Barsby Football is the work of many hands and it is OUR PROGRAM! JB Football is much, much bigger than just a game. We have a lot more work ahead and more history to write! Headed into 2010 remember: UNFINISHED BUSINESS!!!
