I just wanted to thank everyone for all of the cooperation and effort that it took to complete the 2020 football season. We all faced unique challenges this year, and without hard work and sacrifice from parents, players and the HRTA, our boys would have missed out on a lot of valuable experiences. Seniors, I appreciate everything you have done for our program these past four years. You have my enduring respect and that of all of your teammates. Underclassmen, we have a lot of positive things to build on from this year, and it is important that we work together starting now to accomplish all that we want.
Here are some reminders and updates as we enter the off-season. Things are always subject to change based on our circumstances, but this is our plan:
We cannot have a banquet this winter. We are looking to schedule something in the spring if that becomes possible. We may distribute apparel and some other materials before then if it is appropriate.
All seniors whose families are members of the HRTA will receive a $500 scholarship. Seniors need to submit essays on what Hillsborough Football means to you by December 1. I posted the submission form on Google Classroom. The best essay gets an extra $250.
For returning players, we will have position and class leadership meetings throughout the off-season. Notifications will be posted in Google Classroom. This will allow us to check in on our training and maintain our team connection while we are away
We will start virtual Strength Training sessions with Coach McFarland from 2:30-3:15 on Mondays and Wednesdays. We start Monday, November 30. I will post joining details on our Google Classroom before then. We will begin to meet in person as soon as that is possible.
I hope everyone has a safe and healthy Thanksgiving! Please reach out if there is anything I can do to help.
