Remember the regular season is about Team development, “EVERYONE makes the PLAYOFFS”; so Keep it FUN!!
The impact you can make on this Community and this new generation can be life altering. The Life lessons you teach will be much more enduring than your record.
Whether you like it or not you are role models. Control your sidelines. You set the tone for the Players, Parents, and ultimately the league; so win or lose, do it with Class. Demonstrate Good Sportsmanship, shake hands after every game, and genuinely thank the opponent for the opportunity to compete.
“New Spotlight Player weekly award= $20 Stuft Pizza gift card. Coaches please be active nominating your players for Community, Academic or Athletic excellence! Every week we will select an individual that best embodies the ideals we prize as a League.
Lastly, Control you Sidelines Remind your Families: “Coaches Coach, Refs Ref, Players Play and Parents Cheer. If we all stick to our roles we will have another Banner Season.
In Flag Football, every play matters.
And for the 5th/6th grade Titans, Dawson Johnson's hustle and determination helped define the season.
In the regular season finale, Dawson's "never give up" attitude sparked a wild 4th quarter comeback victory.
He started off the 4th quarter with diving flag pull that saved a touchdown inside the five yard line. The Titans team defense made three consecutive stops and rallied with a TD to cut the Chiefs lead to 20-19.
With under three minutes to play, the Titans trailed by one without the ball. In big moments, the stars shine brightest. Dawson intercepted a pass and returned it for a TD to give the Titans their first lead of the 2nd half. Moments later, the Titans celebrated the win and now have momentum heading into the FNL playoffs.
Dawson's leadership was evident all season long. He helps with the defensive assignments and has a burning desire to compete. He doesn't tolerate complacency and strives to make his teammates better.
Off the football field, Dawson is an honor roll student, soccer all-star, and completes dozens of community service hours helping Coachella Valley non-profit groups.
Dawson Johnson is deserving of the Spotlight Player of the Week.
