The CMS 8th grade football team is 3 and 0 with dominating wins over Steamboat (16 - 0), Rawlins (40 - 8), and Rifle (30 - 12). The 7th grade team is 2 and 2 with impressive wins over Steamboat (36 - 0) and Rifle ( 38 - 8).
The girls are also playing great volleyball and we've had great crowd attendance at the home games.
I know the teams and coaches appreciate the crowd attendance and support and a little CDP coverage of the games and posting the game schedule would be great. The CMS Bullpups will be playing the Meeker Cowboys on the 24th in Meeker at 4:00 pm. Get out and cover the CMS games and support the next generation of Bulldogs.
I hope to see a lot of people out supporting Moffat County football this weekend and throughout this season. These youngmen have been working hard all summer and while we lack a lot of upper classmen, their efforts will pay dividends in the next year or two.
After you go see the Bulldogs take on Rifle, come over to Steamboat and support the next generation of Bulldogs as the Middle School takes on the Pilots. The games start at 9:00 a.m. at the Steamboat High School football field.
Parks and Rec
I've been talking about getting some improvments to this park for years now. Lets throw the full weight of our civic clubs like Rotary, Kiwanis and Lions club behind this idea and use the fundraising efforts of those organizations to make it happen. Steamboat has a Rotary Club park that they funded and take care of....why not Craig? For kids West of Yampa and North of Victory there is no real park unless you go all the way out to North Park. A walking path would also be a nice addition. As it sits the park is only used for dogs to poop in and little things like a small band shell and a backstop for t-ball games would be great. Add some amenities and it would be the most used park in town instead of a useless park.
I want to commend Coach Hafey and all he is doing right now to get the students, the players and the town excited about football. For those that don't know, Coach Hafey is working with the middle school to get more games and better competition for our youth so that more players have an opportunity to improve their skills and that should translate to more participation in high school and that will translate into more wins as the depth of our roster improves and the overall skill level of the team increases.
Coach Haffey is introducting the High Schools offense to the middle school players and helping to prepare them for the next level.
Coach Hafey is pushing to have more fundamentals stressed and taught at the younger level and pushing the players to put in the time in the off season.
Thanks CDP for showcasing the work that is going on....
Please start working on getting our Middle School football program better competition. They currently leave our Parks and Rec Doak Walker football program in elementary where they played 7 or 8 full games to Middle School where they play between the A and B teams only 8 games (four games each).
The past AD was lazy and did the bare minimum and scheduled Hayden, SoRoCo and Rangely and this was the only real game time (3 games) the B team sees. The AD then would schedule Rifle, Steamboat twice, Rawlins and Meeker for the A team (only5 easy games). Our Middle School plays teams that are far beneath them and generally go "undefeated" through the 7th and 8th grade season, only to face their very first real competition in the 9th grade and get destroyed.
Please schedule a Rock Springs, WY (on a neutral Wamsuter or Rawlins field only 100 miles travel), Vernal, UT (130 miles ... only 75 if played on a Rangely field), Green River, Wy, or other school on the I70 coridor that would give the 7th and 8th grade A and B team each a solid 7 or 8 games.
Please do what is needed to make it happen as soon as possible so that Coach Haffey has a better chance of getting 9th and 10th graders who have more experience playing football and more experience playing schools that can actually feild a team
I guess we have a different definition of what "doing well" means. The size of the school in relation to other 3As shouldn't even be brought up but around here it's used as a crutch.
And maybe a sweet sixteen means success to you but for those schools who expect a state championship every year it is a setback. Merely making it to state or to participate in a playoff is not how championships are won or how championship teams are born. We've settled for "good enough" for too long. We have great athletes who languish at the hands of "parent coaches" who play politics and destroy programs. We have AD's and a principal who are ripe with apathy and ineffectual leadership. We have a school board who provides little direction and holds almost no one accountable. Now is the time to clean house and right the ship. Excuses and mediocrity can't be tolerated any more.
I think the easiest way to answer that question is to look at MoCo sports. I believe he forgot to do the "Director" part of his job.....and probably the "Athletic" part too.
I simply said in the post that they took down is that I think Frank's wife Kerry is the ambitious one and encourages Frank to do thinks that don't make sense.....like run for office.
I believe Frank and Kerry has mistaken the fact that Frank received quite a number of votes when he ran in 2010 and doesn't realize that those votes weren't for him as much as they were against the incumbent. That lead him and Kerry to try again....and again.....and now again.....
And for that i was sensored?
