Week of Oct 16th

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


Hi MATS fans and players,

Well, we had the Cougars by the tail there for a while.  Very proud of the guys for playing their hardest.  This week we are back in Matador Territory with Homecoming!

Pre-Game Meal

We are looking for volunteers for pasta and chicken and protein bars for this Friday.  Please sign up here if you can help.

Senior Night - Nov 3rd

Senior Night is scheduled for our last home game against the Acalanes As on Nov. 3rd.  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.  She has some examples from last year if you have writer's block.

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 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)


End of Season Banquet

Please save Wednesday, Nov. 29th from 5:30-9:00ish for the End of Season Banquet.  It is usually attended by players and parents and will be held at Moraga Country Club.
