BUCHHOLZ FOOTBALL IMPORTANT UPDATES
Good Evening Bobcats,
Please read through this email as it will contain tons of information about the football team. This week we began our Gridiron campaign to raise funds for the team. We are off to a great start but need your help in promoting the link for family, friends, and supporters to donate. Your son should have a personalized link to send to their family and friends and to post on social media. Here is the team donation link : https://app.myteamworks.org/buchholzfootball2022
Our Black and Gold scrimmage will be on Thursday, May 12th at 6pm at Buchholz High School. We are also excited to announce that we will have a food truck, Swamp Religion, available for food and drink purchases before and during the scrimmage. I will be posting the menu and prices on our Facebook page.. This game will be for the current Varsity and JV players only. The incoming 8th graders will practice from 5:00 pm-5:50 pm and then Coach Whittemore would like the players to stay and watch the game from the stands. Coach also wanted everyone to know that no one will be allowed to sit on the track or field and must remain in the stands or outside the gates. This will be the last night that the incoming 8th graders will practice until summer workouts begin.
We are so excited about the new incoming players and have an unprecedented amount of 8th graders. With that comes some struggles including not enough Riddell helmets for every player. We currently have 120 helmets and need close to 150. Doug Johnson has been working to help with the helmet shortage for Buchholz and put together a package for Riddell to send a group of helmets from players that may own a good Riddell helmet (from last year) that’s another color. Riddell will recondition/re-certify and paint the helmets to the Matte Black. The idea would be Buchholz would pay for the cost of the reconditioning (roughly $50 per helmet) but Buchholz would also retain the helmets so in essence, families would be donating the helmets to the program but your child could wear the helmet if they wanted to. It must be a Riddell helmet to qualify. If your child has a helmet they would like to donate please bring on Thursday and I will be collecting them for Doug.
Next week will be our Spring game against Vanguard on Thursday, May 19th at 7:00 pm at Citizen’s Field. In order to be ready for concessions next week we need to clean out our storage at Citizen’s on Tuesday, May 17th from 10:00 am- 12:00 pm . For those that helped last year it will be a much quicker and easier process I promise :) . if you are able to help please sign up at the link below: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0C4CA8AC23A1FA7-citizens
