Congratulations Wolves

November 25, 2009 - Dear editor,

I want to congratulate the coaches and players on the 2009 Clarkston High School football team for their tremendous season. Clarkston is grateful and privileged to have you represent our community.

You provided us with excitement and hometown pride these past 14 weeks. Saturday night's game was legendary and your performance was exceptional displaying skill, poise and tenacity.

You have provided all of us an indelible memory of the beauty of high school sports. The old sports geeks like me will be discussing that game for decades to come. To the coaches thank you for your skillful molding of this exceptional group of young men.

To the players, you performed as winners. Thank you for your thousands of hours of sacrifice and preparation required to achieve what you have Saturday night and throughout your careers.

Coaches and referees are human as well and thus subject to making mistakes. Know that you won that game with sheer will and effort.

A perfect storm of circumstances out of your control conspired against you to take that hard earned and well deserved victory away from you.

Carry your heads high you are exceptional young men and despite the bitter pain of this moment you will carry the positive of this successful season for the rest of your lives.

You are my "Beloved Wolves." Congratulations and thank you very much.

Dr. Mike Baker
