Multiple Teams · Lynx Football Weekly Update 9.2.19

Lynx Nation,


What a great first week! The freshman competed hard on Thursday and were likely an injury or two away from an opening season win. Unfortunately that’s how it happens sometimes, it is also eye opening to anyone that participates in sports. The adage, “you never know when your last play might be” is unfortunately ringing true for a few of our participants for the 2019 season. Those of you that still have your health and get to continue practicing and playing should take that to heart! Our JV walked away with a hard fought win in their half game on Thursday and we finished out the week with a 29-18 win over Sioux City North at the varsity level. There’s a lot to fix, there’s also a lot to be proud of! Checkout the events below to see what’s coming for Lynx Football this week!


Games: Two games this week on the same day! The freshman will kick off at 4:15 PM on Friday at Wickersham Stadium against Denison-Schleswig while the Varsity will follow with a 7 PM kick off!


School/Practice: With both games on Friday we get a consistent week of practice! Practice will begin with film for the varsity players at 4pm today while the freshman will start on the field at 4. Tuesday and Thursday will begin at 4pm at ALHS and Wednesday will be at 4:15pm at the Stadium. Check below for an easy to read schedule.


Work: The second core value of ours is work. Are you meeting the demands? Were you at every practice last week, every game, and completed every workout? Finally, if you weren’t did you find an excuse? Remember DMGB stands for Doesn’t Matter Get Better. Don’t find an excuse find a way!
