Week of Oct 9th

By jf, 10/09/17, 8:30AM PDT


Hello MATS fans -

That was a tough loss to Clayton Valley on Friday Night, but the MATS did not give up.  Now that we have that one on the books, the team will face Campo (BOO!) on Cougar territory this Friday.  GO MATS!

Senior Night - Nov 3rd

Senior Night is scheduled for our last home game against the Acalanes As on Nov. 3rd.  Did anyone else not realize they had changed their name from the Dons?!  Thank you to Rob Lowe (the other Rob Lowe) for the clarification.

There are two action items on the Senior Parents' side for this night:

1) Program Photos and Bios - Please send a short (<150 words) bio on your son's football career and what he's enjoyed or learned from football or his favorite memory and two photos - one recent and one from when he was younger (both football shots if possible).  Send those to Jeanne Barker at before October 20th.

2) Senior Night Ceremony - Players will line up with 2-3 escorts (usually parents and siblings) by the locker room at 6:15 on game day.  They will be presented in alphabetical order before the game.

We still need a Sophomore or Junior parent to manage the ceremony piece of the evening.  The duties are:

  • Find announcer (sophomore or junior parent) for ceremony
  • Find photographer
  • Order roses and balloon trees/arch
  • Coordinate with cheer parent to include their seniors
  • Communicate with parents two weeks prior to tell timing and get info for announcer (senior names, jersey #s, # of years on team and on varsity and escort names)
  • Communicate with parents & players a few days prior re:timing
  • Set up balloons
  • Line up parents (Jack lines up senior players)

We are in the 4th quarter for volunteering, not many opportunities left.  Grab them while they last!
