Many thanks to Coach Mike Marksbury and Jim Beavers for sending us to “Disney World” Friday night at the SCHS Homecoming football game.
Coach Marksbury became our new Walt Disney and made a dream come true at the game Friday night.
Our son, Clint, is a senior on the varsity football team and has played football in this county since A.J. Waldridge founded the Stallions League. His senior year brings to these parents many emotions as our youngest child brings to a close his education in this county, and football has been a huge part of his education.
To A.J. and Glenna Waldridge - thanks for the foundation you laid for these boys and for making that first touchdown.
To previous Grizzly coaches, Seth Green and J.T. Bass - thanks for instilling pride and respect in our boys. We get many a compliment from people about how respectful and polite our son is, and both of these coaches enforced respect in our middle school football players.
To the teachers in our school system who have worked to help these boys keep up with their studies and pass their classes while they’ve endured what sometimes seems like a neverending practice schedule - thank you for your time and effort and your patience. You are greatly appreciated.
To Teresa Bishop, our football mom who has worked tirelessly for the past nine years, supporting, organizing, distributing, fundraising and photographing our boys – thanks are not enough for what you’ve done.
After our senior year is over, we hope other parents will work as hard as you have to continue to make our football program such a success.
To our band members, cheerleaders, dance team and all the instructors that lead them – you make us very proud. Thanks for all of your hard work.
To Brad Smith, our announcer – we remember the days when we had to yell on the sidelines the names of our boys as they achieved great plays. Thank you for announcing their achievements, play-by-play every week.
To Coach Marksbury, all the assistant coaches and Mr. Beavers – we’ll remember this football year for the rest of our lives. Thanks for making magic in this county.
We grew up on Plum Creek and in Elk Creek, and every time that cannon went off Friday night, we grinned from ear to ear, knowing that the folks all over the county knew we just made a touchdown.
And lastly, to our boys, most of which we consider as our own children – job well done, men.
We’ve never been more proud of each of you. Congratulations to our eight seniors as they complete this year and pass the torch.
Bobby and Beverly Allgeier
