Lesson of Compassion for Others Trumps Opportuity to Post 1st Win!

In the heat of the moment a Texas HS COACH was about to post the schools Frist win when an opposing  player was seriously injured and airlifted off the playing field.

He made the decision for the Team to take a knee on the one yard line and concede the game out of respect for the injured player.  Wins and losses fade but this lesson will last a lifetime.

DSFNL Person of the Week

Malachi Murrell 7/8 Cleveland Browns

Malachi Murrell is an outstanding player with a great attitude. Malachi shows up to practice and is eager to learn and to make his team better. He listens and has the ability to place the team’s needs above him, so he will play wherever he is needed at the time. Game time is where Malachi shines. He has caught two interceptions, returned one for a touchdown, and has caught two other touchdowns on offense. His ability to read the quarterback on both defense and offense make him a double threat. He is aware of his field position at all times. 

Malachi is a great sport as well. He understands FNL is all about having fun and he mixes up his jovial and playful personality with a positive attitude and a strong work ethic. 

Malachi embodies the principles of FNL and he is a joy to coach.
