    In the 5 years I've been coaching this is the best team I ever had 43 great kids on and off the field. I'm so happy for all of them all the hard work paid off. Can't wait for next season to defend the title

    Jon, you were an awesome coach and I appreciate all the time you dedicated to the team, and helping my son learn the skills and be a better player and person this year. You were also my hero at the banquet - good job!! Cannot wait until next year.
