Aquinas' football season ended abruptly last night - driving for the dramatic, winning score before an incomplete pass on 4th down on the 10-yard line. Their final record was 6-4. Our middle son Jonathan has played several seasons for Columbia County during middle school, but this was Nicholas' first venture into the world of football. We were a lttle surprised this summer when he wanted to go through conditioning and training, etc. in order to play on the team. As a sophomore, he primarily played on the JV team, but dressed for all home varsity games and most of the road games. He also saw his first action on the field in a Varsity game! We are very proud of his perseverance and dedication (he never wanted to miss a practice), and look forward to two more seasons of Friday Night Lights. Here is a picture with me, the proud Dad, with the disappointed player after the loss. The Fighting Irish played hard, but it just wasn't meant to be.
