"A Team where Home-Schooled and Private Schooled Students can Learn and Play the Game of Football!"
Congratulations to the STORM for working hard and competing in our NINTH regular season game. We thank God for providing us with the opportunity. He is our Jehovah-Jireh. CONGRATULATIONS to these eighteen young men and their families who completed their inaugural season 9-0! You could play several dozen seasons of Football and not go 9-0, however, you might go a hundred seasons before you ever had another SEASON where the opposition DID NOT SCORE! Coach Altieri put up the Offense, and Coach Wallace just did what he does on Defense! We praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for providing us with everything we needed to achieve this remarkable milestone! The Lord blessed these young men with everything needed, but they still had a choice as to whether or not to put in the work. They did, and because of that they’ll have a season to remember.Our season has certainly already received plenty of attention in the DFW/Texas Football community.
While the season has been a great one on the field, what’s equally as exciting is the growth of these young men off the field. These are not the same boys that showed up in August. I have never been around a team as willing to work and be coached as this Football team. It’s been a true privilege to be a part of this experience.
Our prayers turn to Turk’s family. Turk has been the “Boots on the ground” for TACA since its inception. Turk’s Mother, Solma has recently been hospitalized with what may have been a heart attack and may require surgery this coming week. Please pray that the Lord will bring wisdom and precision to the team at Baylor that is caring for her.
When Turk is back up and running he’ll coordinate with Tammye Tucker and schedule a couple of times and dates to return equipment and return deposit checks. This approach to equipment has really worked out great. No doubt it’s a better approach than buying equipment that would likely be too small for your son next season. We’re very pleased with how the Zero-cost-lease has worked and plan on expanding it next season.
Our thanks to all of the STORM families that made our season and banquet celebration a tremendous success. If we’d scheduled twice the amount of time we still couldn’t have thanked everyone involved adequately. It was that type of season. No permanent Captains, No helmet stickers, no time for individual recognition, just all about serving God and learning and improving weekly with a team effort. There were brief moments during films where players had feedback about how they executed individually on a particular play, but overall all we worked on was getting better as a team on a weekly basis. No team was better conditioned or better coached than the 2013 STORM! A huge thanks to the STORM Coaching Staff.
Our thanks to all of the STORM families for the encouragement to the players to finish the job they started with their fundraising. All in, the players sold nearly $8,000 in raffle tickets-netting the ministry approximately $5250.00!!!! What an incredible testament to their work off the field! Those funds will go a long way to replenishing the start-up costs and preparing for next year.
Last, Thanks to the parents that trusted their young men to our organization. To be prepared for another fantastic season of growth we’ll need each family to be ambassadors for their son’s team. There is a place to play Christ –centered Football in MS and now with JV. Let’s get the word out that if you’re a home-schooler or private schooler without a program, for little to no upfront cost you can join a team that has the best Coaches in the area at this age group. Players will be part of weekly lessons in scripture, learn the game, play top teams, build friendships, and mature into young men. Our best form of advertising is the word of mouth from those of us that have experienced it first-hand. We have a great foundation to build on. Let’s spread his word and hope to make a difference in the life of a young man.
