(Editor's note: The following was posted on the Facebook page of Lakes Lancers, who congratulated the school's outgoing senior football players. The team's season ended Saturday with a 28-25 loss at O'Dea)
Not quite the results we wanted, eh? Not for Lakes anyway.
Young men, you played like champions, especially in the 4th quarter! You never gave up, you never surrendered, you supported your teammates, overcame the challenges together like brothers, like champions. Hold your heads up.
What you achieved goes far beyond the win\loss columns or what's going be written on the front pages of the sports' section tomorrow. You've achieved something that some people have spent their whole lives trying to find, what you achieved is that elusive victory with-in. The battle to trust yourself and put your trust in others. I am so proud of you.
Now, I want to welcome the graduating seniors to the family of Lakes Lancers Football Alumni. Congratulations!
