Extra Points : Coach Pomazak's Message

Stars Football Family -


Boy, oh, boy, did this summer fly. It is remarkable how quickly the days can turn into weeks and weeks into months. Summer camp is always a special time of the year for me. I am a creator at heart, and nothing excites or motivates me more than collaborating and producing a summer opportunity that allows us to teach our program in a 3-dimensional environment. Our Stars must hear, see, feel, and touch what it means to be a Northstar football player. Anyone can put a poster on a wall, but what separates our program from others is that every day we are together, we are immersing our players in the Northstar ecosystem. This does not happen alone, and I want to thank our staff and parent group for putting in the countless hours of preparation it takes to make this happen. The bottom line, this is a special place with special people, and I feel blessed to have this opportunity to work alongside all of you.

This past week was hectic for our Stars; we had over 230 youth campers join us for our Junior and Little Stars camps. Each day, I was fortunate enough to witness our Stars leading and teaching the North Star Mentality to the future of our program. This type of investment will build our schedule for the years to come.

If that was not enough, our Stars Platoons were tasked with the challenge of planning their very own philanthropy for our selfless service week. Our boys did not disappoint, and their efforts connected our community and showed the impact that a straightforward task of servant leadership can have on many. I have been doing this for a long time, and I know when we have a special group. Let me tell you that we have a special one here. Mark my words, this group's love for each other and their buy-in to our North Star culture will be the backbone and foundation to our many wins and future successes.


A good friend of mine has said, " this is not the end; it's only the beginning"!

VARSITY MINI CAMP @ NIU JULY 25TH -27TH

SCN FB is excited to announce that the varsity will resume their summer overnight camp trip. Starting July 25th, we will be busing to NIU and spending three days and two nights at the MAC Champion dormitories and facilities. The overnight trip has been a staple of the SCN FB program since 2015. It is the final chapter of the summer camp season, and the team always leaves a little bit stronger than when they arrived. Below is our camp itinerary, and we will be updating you on the events via our @scnfboffical Twitter handle

NORTHSTAR FOOTBALL FUNDRAISER UPDATES

Northstar football is nationally known for the experience it provides for all its key stakeholders. Each year the program is entitled to one fundraiser that will account for the entire fiscal budget for the year. The fundraiser is the lifeblood of the program. Without it, we would not be able to provide the day-to-day experience we currently do.


We have put a soft closure to our card sale and the returns are great at a program we sold around 1200 cards! Some players are still turning cards in so please do not hesitate to keep selling.


Congratulations to Bob's Brigade Platoon on selling over 170 cards and earning the platoon challenge championship and 30 points towards their overall score!


As we transition to the 2nd phase of our fundraising, we ask our Stars to find sponsorship for our Stars Football Lift a Thon. Each athlete will be able to raise money via an online platform. Please consider donating or share the link with friends and family. More details are forthcoming regarding the lift a thon.

STARS SELFLESS SERVICE WEEK



This past week our Platoons were challenged with collaborating, implementing, and reflecting on a servant leadership project within our STC community. The platoons showcased their project on our @scnfbofficial Twitter handle. Each platoon did a fantastic job and should be applauded for their efforts. Not only did they invest their time and effort, but the preparation and accountability it took to show up and execute the project speak volumes for their care for one another. This is a selfless group that understands what it means to put we before me.


The winner will be announced Tuesday at our team building event.

OTTER COVE RECAP

Nothing beats the heat like a bit of fun at St. Charles's best water park! A great time had by all, and a special thanks to Boys soccer for joining us for the evening. It wouldn't be a pool party without the platoon diving competition and this year was one for the record books. Chock-full of triple lindy's and back flips, the competition culminated with a statuesque belly flop by Gabe Tate. Our judges had a tough call, but LPS came out on top for the second year. Despite a log jam on the yellow slide and a park district security warning to stop the evening were a huge success and a special thanks to the staff at otter cove for being such great sports with 150 boys running around with inner tubes.

EARN YOUR STRIPES WEEK 5 UPDATE

Week 6 Earn Your Stripes


The action is white hot! Lemon Peppa Steppa's have kept Bob's Brigade and Goodfellas and arm's length. Still, with the Servant Leadership Project looming overhead and the final week of points at NIU, it is safe to say that championship is still anyone's game.

ELITE LEADER CHRIS SMITH '25 OL

This week's ELITE LEADER is Chris Smith. Chris is a varsity sophomore working his way up the depth chart. His peers recognized Chris as an invested and prepared leader. We are excited about Chris's development these past five weeks and look forward to 3 years of his offensive line leadership.

STILL TIME TO COME OUT FOR FOOTBALL

As the summer comes to a close and the fall season gets underway. Please remind those who may be on the fence and thinking of playing that football is no experience necessary, noncut sport. Every player who comes out gets a jersey, and we will field 5 levels of football. If you know of anyone who is considering playing please direct them to Coach Pomazak for a 1 on 1 meeting.
