Wow!!! What a finish. All should be very proud of their recent accomplishments this past weekend in Denver. It was crazy, chaotic, and very busy but great to be back to the Denver Shootout after a 3-year hiatus. It was almost perfect with our older guys making the final once again. 3-3 at halftime things were still looking ok but..unfortunately a very good Denver Elite team pulled away.
As we told the boys though – the loss doesn’t mean they failed. It was just one instance in a 4-year journey that every one of them should be proud of being a part of and completing. The tears at the end weren’t due to the loss but instead because this journey is now over and it meant something to all.
The coaches are extremely proud to have been a small part of each and every one of the grade 12 class’s path through high school and wish these young men the very best of luck beyond high school and look forward to shaking their hands as they cross the stage next week.
The younger guys also did an amazing job this weekend and saw what it takes and means to play at the highest levels possible as they carry the ‘Spartan torch’ in the coming years.
