President's Statement

UpdatedSaturday December 11, 2021 byNSYFCA.

Just over a year ago, as we were in the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, it was with a heavy heart that we needed to make the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 season.  Personally, I didn’t know what that would mean for our organization in the 2021 season.  We all stood by while we watched the world adjust to a new kind of normal and just hoped that our children would be able to return to their regular school schedule and activities.  


It was through great effort and perseverance by our Central MA Conference, BOD, volunteers, and parents that we were able to come back strong this season.  With that said, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to the entire T-Hawk family of players, cheerleaders, parents, coaches, volunteers, coordinators, and the NSYFCA Board of Directors for their tireless work, commitment, and dedication over this past year. 


It is also just as important to thank the parents, relatives, and friends who drive their kids to practice, prepare late dinners, and provide love and support throughout the season. It is these volunteers, parents, and others who truly make this organization run, and I truly appreciate everyone’s time, effort, and sacrifice.


It’s been a privilege to be a part of this organization over the years.  When we registered our oldest child to play football 10 years ago, I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into.  I’ve had the privilege of being able to coach almost every level of football and see multiple players that developed and graduated from our program.  Now I get to see some of them play at the High School and College levels.  Though it has been a lot of work, I can say that it has absolutely been worth every minute.


As NSYFCA President, it is my mission to make this entire organization an environment for athletic and personal growth. Where our young student athletes learn life and social skills, a solid work ethic, the values of teamwork and good sportsmanship, and a love for the game of football, and cheering. I strive to continuously improve and grow our organization into one that these young men and women and their families are proud of.


As we head into the off season, I ask one thing of you…...RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT.   Our parents and players are our greatest asset to keep this organization alive and thriving.   Looking through this yearbook, I see hard-work, dedication, teamwork, perseverance, commitment, and family.   We need your help to keep this FAMILY thriving!
