Thanks Grandad!!
« on: November 08, 2018, 11:12:24 am »
Would like to take a minute to give thanks and say how much BA Black appreciates you Grandad!!! You've called like you saw it from the start and no matter what the chatter is/was on the forum, you've given nothing but your honest perspective and we thank you for that.  I think I speak for most when I say, when Grandad talks, everyone is listening.  As the season is coming to a close we thank you for sharing with us your time and insight, I promise you Sir it has been a pleasure. 

Support as we know plays a huge roll in success.  Not only on the field but off.  Grandad we want you to know that we're all here to support you on your fight!!  You're not alone, Broken Arrow along with the rest of the league is behind you 100%.  Every time you walk in to the treatment center, know that following you is bunch a crazy Grandad fans that love and support you with all their hearts!!!

Much love and prayers to you Grandad. We'll always have your back! [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Wow, Iím flabbergasted. That post almost brought me to tears. Thank you so much BA Black!!

Iíve said it several times, but Iím in awe of the BA teams this season. First, just having 5 teams is incredible, and then 4 of them made it to the playoffs. BA is in the finals in both A and AA playoffs. BA Black is in the finals for the 2nd straight year, so youíre obviously doing a lot of things right. Your coaches, parents, and fans have a right to be proud.

On the cancer front, Iím doing OK. God has been good to me. Iím in pretty good shape. Especially for someone who got my original prognosis. My chemo treatments lasted 9 hours ... just suffice it to say they arenít fun. I can walk. My pride wonít let me ride an electric cart in a store so Iím stubborn.  Enough of that topic.

Back to kids and sports. I love them both. Ironically I never coached football. Just baseball, soccer, and basketball. I refereed HS and AAU basketball for years. Iím a fan of almost all sports.... they teach so much. How to compete. How to win and lose graciously. You learn that life isnít always fair. It teaches teamwork. I could go on.....

I also am a fan of the INFC. Itís a really good league. I have 2 grandsons who have been involved it it. Obviously one of them is in the 4th grade and plays for Edmond. The other is an ďalumĒ and played for 2 years in the INFC. Heís in the 8th grade but the INFC experience helped prepare him for school ball. He was the QB on his team in Edmond, and is a pretty good basketball player... he was excited to tell me tonight he grabbed the rim for the first time in basketball practice today. Thatís why I know a lot of these 4th graders will be HS stars in a few years.

Good luck in the championship game on Saturday. Jenks Maroon is good team and I expect a close game. Itís a game between 2 very deserving teams.
