Hello! Well it sure felt like a fall football day today to get us all in the mood for some Friday Night Lights!

Week Two Highlights:
  • Week one of the official start of the season is in the books and as Coach promised - the boys were TIRED, but it sounds like it was a really good start.
  • Moms and Muffins was held on Saturday with a great turnout and lots of fun.  We learned a lot about what our boys do and how much they need to remember.  They make it look pretty easy!
Coming Up:
  • Thursday, August 22nd will be PICTURE DAY.  Seniors will need to be to HODAPP at 4:30pm and everyone else (Varsity/JV/10th) ready to go by 5pm.  Captains will be in touch with the senior boys for what they will be wearing. Picture packets will be handed out this week so be looking for those and if your player doesn't give you one, you might want to ask. 😋  There will of course be packets available at the field that day as well.
  • CORRECTION FOR PICTURES:  9th Grade will have their pictures at 11am during practice on Thursday.
  • Also, please note in the schedule that there is an additional evening practice for Varsity on Tuesday at 6:30pm and for Varsity/JV/10th following pictures on Thursday.
  • Saturday, August 24th is the pre-season scrimmage at St. Cloud State for Varsity and JV/10th, while 9th grade will be at Clark Field (also in St. Cloud).  There has been a change to the schedule and the scrimmage will now start at 9am with the bus leaving at 7:15am.  Remember to keep checking the website calendar for any changes or specific information.
  • Saturday is also the Family Football Kick-off Night.  We will start gathering about 5pm so we can be ready to start eating at 5:30pm.  Volunteers will get another Reminder for what time/place to meet for their tasks.  THANK YOU to those who have signed up.  If you would still like to help, just sign-up on the spreadsheet and someone will get in touch with you.  Many hands make light work! (Note:  You need a google account or gmail account to access the sheets - if you don't have one, please ask a friend to sign you up).
We still need volunteers for upcoming events and meals.  If you are uncertain about signing up because you are unsure of what is required, please reply this email and we can fill you in.  

Finally, if you are reading this from the website and did not receive an email, please send an email to parent@willmarfootball.com so we can get your email address added or corrected.

GO CARDS! 🏈
