It was cold and wet but the Knights beat Cedar Crest under the lights on Newport's home turf. What a game. Lot's of action and what a joy to have our Knights walk away with a an end of season victory.
This has been a crazy season full of highs and lows but mostly our boys have shown courage in the heat of battle, they have shown growth throughout the 10 games they played and with every game something new came the following week, and as the season went on attitudes were adjusted, a drive was instilled and the boys just seemed to find a groove...there was a certain strength and creative intelligence and I felt like the football machine got it's oil and we were starting to fire on all cylinders. Every single person who put their heart into this season should be proud. Let's look at the list: Coaches, athletes, statisticians, trainers, announcers, photographers, athletic director and staff, maintenance and custodial services, countless volunteers, cheer, drill, band and all those behind the scenes in those groups, our incredible die hard student body, moms, dads, grandparents, friends, alumni, our community, restaurants and businesses that have supported us along the way, there are so many people and groups to say great job and thank you to. I know I am not thinking of everyone, but I know you get the idea- it takes a lot of support in our Knightly Kingdom to pull this off, and we know that as we grow and build on what we did this year we will continue to thrive and only be better next year- bigger, better, more! I can't wait to see what's in store. Lastly thank you Touchdown Club you are a great catalyst to make things happen...Let's Go Newport!!! We are going to build to become better, one game at a time, one event at a time, one fundraiser at a time...let's just all agree, go big or go home!
Ummm did anyone else hear its supposed to snow Monday? Really? Can that be true? Well fine with me I got one more gig on Saturday THE PLAYERS YEAR END BANQUET and this year the Touchdown Clubs hosting - THE ULTIMATE PANCAKE BRUNCH!
I am gonna stuff myself then by Sunday I will laydown and take a break and hibernate for a spell. I don't do snow and its time for a rest, I have some rolls of fat and thick furry coat I am ready for a nap...actually I think everyone needs a lil break, but we will be back, bigger and better than before and ready to bring it and build on BIGGER, BETTER, MORE!
