As school is winding down, and summer is heating up, we’d like to get the kids thinking about fall football. As some of you recall we did a field day last year, with fun football drills, games, and prizes. We are holding this year’s Falmouth Youth Football Field Day next Weds. June 15 from 5 – 6:30 pm at the Community Park football field. This event is open to all ages (grades 1 – 6) and skill levels, but especially current flag and tackles players, and any other kids interested in football. Its a fun, non-contact way to get excited about the game before summer, plus everyone will get some good exercise in before the last day of school.
Drew Chamberlain was inducted into the Maine Chapter of the National Football Foundation (MeNFF) on Wednesday, May 25th up at Bowdoin College. He was honored along with twenty other scholar athletes from across Maine. Drew was chosen based on his three-time selection to the Campbell Conference All Star Team, his being a semi-finalist for the Gaziano Lineman of the Year Award and being a two-time FHS team captain. He also excelled in the classroom where he maintained a 92-grade point average over his four years. Drew has been accepted to Bowdoin College where he will be playing football for the Polar Bears next fall. Joining Drew at the induction dinner were his mother Cheri Walker, his grandfather, Coaches Fitzsimmons and Bryant along with teammates Trey Fallon, Sean Bryant, Alex Wissemann and Jack Bryant. He now joins past Falmouth High School MeNFF winners Noah Nelson Class of 2015, Ryan MacDonald and Matt Kingry Class of 2011, Sam Dunwoody Class of 2008 and Nick Ford Class of 2006. We congratulate Drew on winning this prestigious award!!
On May 7, 2016 the Falmouth Football Booster group was invited to a reception in Foxboro, Massachusetts that honored the recipients of the 2015 Bill Belichick Foundation’s grants and scholarships. Last fall we applied to the BBF for a grant in support of our capital campaign for new lockers and an air filtration system. We were fortunate to receive the support we requested and had a chance to celebrate with other recipients at the luncheon. Matthew Barney attended with his son Noah, reporting back that Bill Belichick was very grateful for the work we all do as volunteers. He spoke about how his rookie camp was just starting with 16 new prospects, and that he doesn’t get to do what he does if there isn’t community support at the youth and school levels by volunteers. While we were very thankful to him and his Foundation for the support, he was clear that he is the one thanking us for our time and commitment to the sports in our communities.
A mom recently shared this article with us, and I thought others would like to read it. It’s a heartfelt breakdown of one man’s journey with the sport, and the benefits boys get from playing. I found the last two paragraphs particularly insightful. Feel free to share.
