Week 7 Cooper
Players and Parents,
We had an amazing week of Homecoming activities, and school spirit is without a doubt as high as it has ever been since I have been at Irondale. The boys had a good week of practice, and we felt good headed into the game with a Forest Lake team that was better than their record indicated (but so are we). For the third week in a row we did not play well, or to our ability level. The great thing about football is we now have another chance to see if we can persevere and make happen this week. We won't make excuses, we have to be better from top to bottom if we want to get this team performing to its potential. Part of being tough and having hear is never giving up. None of us are ready to give up this team, if we stay the course and keep working hard, we will find the spark that we need to get where we want to be.
“For every obstacle there is a solution. Persistence is the key. The greatest mistake is giving up!”
-Dwight D. Eisenhower-
