Packers’ teamwork, focus lead to Doak Walker 3rd-, 4th-grade title in Craig

Darin White said he routinely instructs his football players to keep focused and work as a team no matter the situation. When his team, Rehabilitation Services of Craig Packers, went down 7-0 in the second quarter to the Masterworks Mechanical Raiders during the Doak Walker third- and fourth-grade football championship game Wednesday at Woodbury Sports Complex, White didn’t stray from his message. “I told them to go out and keep going after them,” he said. “The last time we played (the Raiders), we probably should have lost, be we got saved and scored a last second touchdown. We knew it would be a tough game, but I told the kids to keep working hard.”

I Would like to Personally thank Craig Daily Press for running a great artical, All these boys on the Packers and Raiders teams deserve some gratitude for playing such a great year. It is important to kids to be able to read about their time in the paper, and it makes them proud of their hard work. Thank you to all Coaches that Volunteer their time to coach. Not only do they not get paid (like Bo Lyons stated) Every coach also pays full price for thier child to play. It amazes me the amount of people that will stand on the side lines and criticize the coaches and the refs (that volunteer their time), but yet dont lift a finger to assist. Every year, Parks and Recs, has to struggle to find enough coaching staff, to even make these activities available. If It wasn't for these Men Volunteering their time to coach, your children wouldnt have sports to play. So a thanks is in order to each and EVERY ONE of the Coaches in the Doak Walker Football league, and any other City league sport, as far as that goes. Congratulations to the Raiders team, they played amazing this year, and deserve some credit for their hard work. Also Congratulations to the Packers team. This year they proved, that being the smallest players, or the youngest players doesnt matter. Its all about practicing hard, playing hard and working as a team!!!!! Way to go guys!
