A Good Day!

Greetings all-

Saturday was 21 years in making (1991 was our last Football State Championship team). It started with a beautiful rendition of our National Anthem by Ellery Jones ‘14 and then the contest began. In front of a record crowd of almost 2,000, DeSo field came alive with the very best spirit that high school sports can generate. 100's of loyal and loud KDS alums returned to see our team prevail 28-17 against an accomplished, courageous, and highly motivated Platte Valley team. Coming from behind (14-17 at half) , our student athletes demonstrated great character - fulfilling the last four team themes of Brotherhood, Toughness, Grit, and this year, FINISH! Scott Yates, Bill Boatman, and the incredible coaching staff deserve recognition and credit for bringing out the best in the team and rising above the pressure to demonstrate the very best of poise, sportsmanship, and heart. The leadership of our ten seniors was a critical element in this undefeated season.  Scott finally got a full night's sleep, and I imagine that a good night of sleep it was.

Thanks to everyone who worked and attended the game, it was a fabulous event!

Best, Todd
