When a team unites behind an idea, it is amazing what they can do!

 

This story should inspire fans of high school football. This is what it is all about; playing for the love of the game, respect for the man next to you and some personal pride.

When Lynn Camp made it to the State Semi-Finals against Beechwood in 2003, we had 21 kids on the roster. About 15 actually saw the field for any real ammount of time. It was a great season and I applaud these guys. It's rough to go that small, but it is wonderful when the work pays off!!!!:thumb:

"The kids get along great, but the parents just can't seem to co-exist," says McLeod West principal Mike McNulty. "They love to spread rumors about each other. They love to stab each other when they're not looking."

 

Not to paint with too broad a brush, but isn't this often the case with consolidation?

Thanks for sharing such an uplifting story.

 

This story is sort of like what we have going on in the Ft. Campbell community. Many parents were deployed during the title run last season and more are deployed this season. Coach Berner has the team playing as a family, for eachother, and for parents around the world. The pride and dedication is inspiring. When Senior Linebacker Josh Carter's father was killed in Afghanistan earlier this summer, it only strengthened the unbreakable bond felt by the entire team. High School football is inspiring and also a formative part of life as boys make the transition to men.
