The Sharpe family: Remember Wells’ contribution

To the Editor:

Props to the Moffat County Bulldogs for their outstanding success this season. This family also has been bitten by the bug called high school football. What an exemplary accomplishment for our boys.

While there are, obviously, many factors that have a hand in this success, there is a huge factor that has gone sadly unnoticed and unthanked. All due respect to coach Kip Hafey and his assistant coaches, but it is evident to those of us “in the know,” as it were, that the big difference in this team is the efforts and selfless participation of Tom Wells. Let’s give some credit where credit is due.

For those of you who are not aware of this fellow, Wells is a former semi-pro football player who has dedicated many volunteer hours to the coaching staff. Tom is the only unpaid coach on the squad. We lost many of our best players last year when they graduated and hopes for this year’s team were not particularly that optimistic. Wells brought in fresh plays and fresh ideas that have never been implemented by the team. How many of you in the stands have noticed plays and maneuvers you have never seen the Bulldogs employ? The thanks for those great plays are wholly due to Wells. Please take notice of this guy — his worth to our football team is more than we can count. Not a mention of recognition has he received, and he very much deserves it.

Note to Moffat County School Board: Don’t let Wells slip through your fingers. Some other school may very well take advantage of your loss if you do and then our team would surely suffer for it (read — don’t be fools, hire the man!) Go Bulldogs!

With all sincerity,

The Sharpe family,

Jayney, Jim, Thea and Becca
