Hornsby Pre-Game Notes

Today is our last home game of the season. Kickoff is at 4:30 pm. and will be played at the Berkeley Middle School field. Also, as stated last week, we need at least three family members or supporters of the team to work the side line markers. If you would like to volunteer, please notify the person taking admissions and the fee of $3.00 for all adults and children over the elementary school age will be waived. We cannot start the game until we have folks on the sideline linked up with the officials.

Because this is a short week due to the playoffs on this Saturday, we will practice outside tomorrow, so please ensure you players have all their equipment to practice outside. Past weeks this season, we’ve watched game film on Wednesdays, however, again, with a short week, we will practice outside on Wednesday. Practice will still end on Wednesday by 5:00 pm for players to be picked up or ride the activity bus. Just a reminder, Friday is an early release day (12:25 pm), so we will again practice from 12:45 to 3:30 pm. As there is no lunch provided, please consider providing players with a snack that they can bring to school. We will again afford a few minutes before practice for players to eat a snack.

As far as Saturday’s playoff game, we will not know for sure what game we will be seeded in until the end of all play today. As soon as that is determined, we will publish a schedule for Saturday and cover that information with the players. Finally, also to be published at the end of the week will be the information for equipment turn in and an end of the season recognition ceremony. Further details on both of these topics will follow over the next several days.

We look forward to a great turn out of Bulldog fans as we take on our cross-town rivals today.

Berkeley Bulldog Football Mantra

Playing football for Berkeley Middle School is a privilege, and as such the opportunity to be a member of this team is completely in the control of each and every player. You must bring the combination of will, skill and attitude to the field and classroom every day. Hard work, disciplined actions and a commitment to the program will absolutely result in guaranteed success. In the end, together, we will enjoy a sense of pride in our team, each other, our community and our entire school. Each and every season is a another chance to build upon past season’s successes that past and present Bulldog football players have shown both on and off the field.
