Extra Points : Coach Pomazak's Message

Stars Football Family -


Not going to bury the headline here! We did it! The Varsity has officially punched its ticket into the 2022 IHSA football 7A state playoffs. Proud does not even describe my feelings towards these players and staff. It is an emotional moment that I do not want just to gloss over. Too often, we can easily get caught up with the next challenge or moment. From early November, the number one goal was to get back to the playoffs. The amount of preparation, accountability, and investment every parent, player, and staff member has made is humbling. It is also why we are where we are today. I want our kids to realize that goals achieved must be celebrated. There are not many times in life when you set out to achieve something and do it. We must hit the "pause" button on those moments and savor the feeling for a minute. I do not think I can truly put into words my appreciation for our entire program. I am excited that our players have earned the "second season"! I know they are ready to take the next step on their journey to ELITE.


As we enter the final third of the season and transition into the playoffs, you may wonder how that affects the closure of our under-level season. First, I wish our frosh and soph the best of luck as they close out their 2022 campaign. In the coming weeks, our varsity staff will expand our roster and invite players to join us during the playoffs. The initial expansion will be by invitation only. Unfortunately, it is not conducive to the entire program joining us for the playoffs. Those that stay with the varsity will practice with the team, and those who get put on the playoff roster will dress for the games. There are still a few boxes to check before we move into that phase of the planning period, but I want to make this information available to you.


Finally, as we move into the final two games, I want to thank all the parents for the constant support of our players. The team dinners, grab-and-go meals post-game, and the concessions work are not easy but absolutely essential. We are one family, and the varsity success is an extension of the sacrifice and efforts made at every level. Let us enjoy these last few weeks and make a great playoff run!

THAT'S RIGHT! THE STARS ARE OFFICIALLY IN THE PLAYOFFS ! WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN ?

In the IHSA, not every team will make the 7a playoffs. Only 32 teams get the honor of being in a playoff. Essentially, it is like winning a regional championship to get in. To determine who gets into the playoffs, the IHSA has a set of rules.


1. 5 wins make a team playoff eligible

2. 6 wins is an automatic bid

3. Conference champion is an automatic bid

4. Seeding is based on records and the points

5. 1 point is awarded to the team for every win on their schedule

ie Palatine 5-1 LZ 5-1 WWS 2-4 GENEVA 5-1 WN 5-1 LP 1-5 = 23 PTS


The playoff pairing show is held the Saturday after the season's final game. This year the date is 10.22.22. Our program will celebrate this event with a team viewing session from 7 pm -9 pm in the cafe open to all levels of the SCN football family. More details will be forth coming.

BSN TEAM/FAMILY SPIRIT WEAR SALE UPDATE

I apologize for the extremely long delay in delivery for all of our BSN sales. I have spoken to our representative, and he assured me the items would be shipping this week to homes. My concern has been their inability to fill complete orders. Please review your order when it arrives. If there is a highlighted tag with a circle around the item, it has not arrived. This issue has been recognized as an unacceptable representation of the Stars football brand, and I can assure changes will be made with suppliers in the future.

PROGRAM DAY

Our program prioritizes the first 20 minutes of practice to a program connection every Wednesday. We call it Program Day, and during that time, we highlight each level and talk about our journey. Our captains deliver a message for the week and our coaches have an open mic to discuss anything that they feel is relatable to the week. It is always a very special time and one I cherish as an opportunity to connect our program. Here are some highlights

Varsity Offensive Player of the Week: DREW SURGES

Defensive Player of the Week: AIDEN ZOCHER
