  • From Pete Peterson, G-E-T A.D. after play-off loss ~ I know tonight didn’t go the way we had hoped, but I want to say “Thank You!” to Coach Steffenhagen, all the other coaches and most importantly, the players.This season reminds me of a time twenty years ago when I was fortunate to be part of a very good football team.  In playoffs, we ended up losing a game that we thought we would win.  This G-E-T football season has allowed me to relive a little bit of that season.  Watching the fun and success takes you back to when you put on your own jersey. Tonight’s loss also takes you back to the hurt and agony.After spending some time with those same football friends at our class reunion this last weekend, we realized the thing we missed the most was the amazing time we had.  It wasn’t all about the playoff lost, although in the moment it was tough, it was about the magical time when you get to hang out with friends and enjoy doing something you love.So, in the end, when you look back at the 2017 season think of all the amazing things you accomplished.  A 9-0 regular season that allowed a repeat as Conference Champions.  The first team to play on a beautiful new turf field and sports complex.  The ability to bring together over 1,000 people on Friday nights to watch great football and promote community spirit. The opportunity to repeatedly hear from so many people what great young men we have at G-E-T and what great sportsmanship they had. The chance for young men to learn life skills that even includes how to handle loss.  So, in the end, “Thank you!” for allowing all of this to happen.  I am proud of our football players and proud to be a Red Hawk.
  • What an end to our regular football season. When talking about this season to date the only word I can think of is dominance. Dominance as you end the season with a 9-0 record.  Dominance is when you win all your conference games with a 304-34 point differential.  Dominance because you saw all the work and dedication these athletes and coaches put in the summer including camp, passing league and speed and strength classes. Congratulations on a great season! ~ Pete Peterson, G-E-T A.D

  • What a great job our girls golf team did.  This team of hardworking girls took 4th in the sectional and were only 3 strokes out of 3rd place.
