Well friends here we are HOCO Week...I remember back at the beginning of the season when we all learned this HOME away from HOME deal was looming and we were all like how the heck are we going to do that? Well the truth is as KNIGHTS we are tough, creative, smart and very resourceful. Now we have had some tough games on the field but I want to remind you as a team and a school we are way bigger than the score on the scoreboard. For instance we have been thrown some curves and we always overcome logistics and we rally together to make it right and most of all have fun, we put together the best Friday Knights that we can with the resources we have. I hope everyone pulls together this week and shows up and fills the stands in Knight force. As The Touchdown Club we also continue to encourage the parents of any football player to step up, its your time to shine and do what you can to help out. There are always things we need help with and volunteering is a big part of what we do but let me tell ya a little secret, many friendships and camaraderie occurs and it's a blast. You can really help out by buying up a stack of Car Wash Tickets so we can continue to feed our boys, when 80 hungry football players sit down to eat let me tell ya it's a project to pull together so if you donate time, spend a few bucks at the Knight Market, and please just buy Car Wash Tickets, it all goes to making the experience of Knight Football a bigger and better deal for the kids they see us do good and your kid will appreciate it. But the Touchdown Club does so much more, we giveaway lots of stuff at every home game, we keep prices as low as possible when we sell things, we have to create displays, buy banners, tents, merchandise and so on; it's a lot to do and support...I just want you to know that without the hard work that goes on behind the scenes a lot of this stuff just would not happen, our boosters are the best, but just like coaches ask our players to dig deep we want just a little bit more help and support from you to push us to do better for the kids. We love smiles and fun, yes we love to win to, but as a Teddy Bear my greatest feelings come when I see smiles and hear someone say, that was fun tonight, you might say I was brought on to comfort and bring smiles and have fun through this HOME away from HOME times but let me tell ya its infectious, we work hard and can't wait to work harder. So that having been said, we promise HOCO is going to be fun, don't miss out if you are going to come, come early visit the Knight Market buy some swag and let's get rowdy! Let's rock the bowl at Bellevue High....heck I was there last week for their HOCO along with many of you and really I think our attendance will be much greater and will show our color and school pride. Let's show Bellevue how NEWPORT parties and let's have a blast! Look out for free giveaways and special HOCO deals throughout the game. Don't forget to snap a pic with me because well you can and should besides what if Joel puts me away after this season you know when we have things all back to normal you just never know...I hope I am around, but who knows. So snap a pic, pick up some beads or Knight gear, you know at the market the prices are fair and there are lots of great market deals and remember every penny goes back to the kids whether we give things away to the student body or let me remind ya one more time again our football playing Knights, well they can eat. Parents please step up make that donation of time or money we need to keep the momentum going it's time to spread the word THE TOUCHDOWN CLUBS ready to share some joy and have some HOCO FUN!
