ECHS Football Family,
We had a great start of football last week! I am so encouraged by our player's hard work this last week and I am especially proud of their positive attitudes with their teammates and their focus as they learn the offensive and defensive installs. Keep up the great work players and coaches!
Players we will see you Monday:
2:00 Weight Room Open (Novice and Varsity)
2:30 Equipment Issues
Next, as we approach our first scrimmage game this Saturday at Linfield Christian High School, each player will need to secure their own ride to and from the game. Players please make sure you have all your gear and arrive at Linfield Christian High School no later 4:00PM.
31950 Pauba Rd
Temecula, CA 92592
Also, we have our first home game on August 18th at Escondido High School vs Clairemont. We are needing help in our snack bar. 100% of the snack bar proceeds goes back to support our football program. Please sign up at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/508094DAAAA2DA5FE3-echs
Finally, I want to share with you a story that I read in USA Today. Seattle Seahawks Head coach Pete Carroll had his team read the book “The Road to Character". The author outlines 15 points he calls “The Humility Code” with point No. 4 stating that “humility is an awareness that your individual talents alone are inadequate to the tasks that have been assigned to you.” Coach Carroll says “That’s what playing for one another means.” Play as One!
Play as One!
