WORD FROM OUR HONORARY PATRON
Another football season is going on for St. Pat’s green jerseys and once again, I want to extend my best wishes of success and mainly, of fun to all the team members, including the players, the coaches, the management and the volunteers surrounding St. Pat’s and high school football.
If I mention success and pleasure, it is because football must be both a competitive activity and a formation process. Of course, when we compete, we always want to win and this is a fact that grows up along the degree of the sport caliber. However, especially at high school level, sport must mainly be an amusement, a pleasure and an opportunity to create new contacts and make new friends; it must also be a school of human values where we learn to respect his team, his logo, his teammates, his coaches and his opponents.
Sport and especially team sport like football is a great school of life and I can assume it myself since it is at St. Pat’s that I have personally started my football career and ever since, I have always been deeply attached to the green jerseys.
So my message to every St. Pat’s player is have fun and surpass yourself and if you develop your skills, your athletic capacities and your passion for football, who knows? There might be a University nearby, waiting for you.
Have a great football season.
