Colt Athletic News Letter
This week was a roller-coaster of emotions for the boys, and I'm sure moms/dads. We had some struggles on all levels but are continually getting better. In the end the 7th Grade A team was able to learn from last week's mistakes and understand the "NEXT PLAY" mentality with .26 seconds left. The boys fought back after being up 19-0, and then giving up 22 straight points, to win with .9 seconds left. Great Job Guys!

Players of the Week
As we try and give out awards for Player of the Game/Week, we may or may not give out one based on if someone earns it. We want the award to be special, and if no one in the coaches' eyes earns it, then we will not give out the award. The boys are to be responsible for the horse shoe all week and try and keep winning the award.
7th B Team Defensive Player of the Game - Kyle Smith
Kyle is on the field for most of the game and does not seem to tire. And when he hits you on defense, its like a ton of bricks! He also stepped up when we had some guys tire out at another position, and said, "I'll do it, even though its not my position." That is true GRIT!
7th A Team Offensive Player of the Game - AJ Smith
AJ showed his leadership when there were only .26 seconds left in the game and his team had just lost the lead for the first time all game. With two passes in only .17 seconds, he put an end to Cross Timbers hopes of coming away with a come from behind win with an awesome TD pass to Sean Fanning.
8th B Team Defensive Player of the Game - Caleb Kim
Caleb is quickly becoming a true force on his team. He went from a stand up player and we dropped him down to rush the backfield numerous times, and upon one occasion, the ball broke for a long run, and Caleb, from being on the line with a hand on the ground, turned around, and chased the ball down for a TD saving tackle. Takes a lot of Guts and Resolve to never give up on a play like that!
8th A Offensive Player of the Game - Kevin Swingle
Most definitely going unnoticed is Kevin's ability to get the ball to the QB every play. He has the most important job on the entire team. Kevin gave us the opportunity on offense ALL game long to have a chance to win, and that definitely defines player of the GAME!
