Rocky Mountain Lobos Need You Fort Collins
The Rocky Mountain High School football program has a lot of graduating football players this year and are finding a hole in the line-up. Don’t leave a Lobo uncovered if you can help it, the boosters program is looking for parent volunteers, yes Southwest Fort Collins (and school of choice players) the Rocky Mountain Lobos need you.
As you likely, my Colton was a Rocky Mountain Lobo, at the end of his Sophomore year he was named second string varsity. He was, at 6’1″, 230 pounds, an offensive lineman. His mentor, Ed Kennedy, a Senior at the time who has since moved on to a great career to with the University of South Dakota. (yes, they asked him to play for them)
Ed taught my Colton many thing’s on and off the football field and we will always hold him dear to our hearts and wish him the best in his college career. Not only was he my Colton’s mentor, his mom was the president of the boosters and she is an amazing woman, as are all of the volunteers who organize, schedule and execute so much during the entire school year, not just when you’re sitting in the stands at French Field during the regular season. RMHS is a community of families that really come together and when you get such like minded people together for any one cause, such as the football boosters, magic happens. Okay, think I’m off my rocker that’s okay as long as I get my point across.
The RMHS football boosters really changed the face of football for my Colton. The care that these volunteers put into providing snacks for road games, fun gathering’s for team unity, bbq’s and so much more is and was greatly appreciated. Colton always came home from a road game and talked about how well the boosters took care of all of the players, after all, they become a close nit family and the boosters become these wonderful reps of all of us parents and take such great care of the players. Not to bring you down, this is just to show you how important the RMHS boosters are and were to our family, when Colton passed, in lieu of flowers or gifts we asked that those who wanted to, donate whatever money they would have spent to the RMHS boosters.
The boosters do work year round, just like the players, there isn’t much down time. And now that there are expected holes in the booster line-up as the senior players graduate, they need you. Finally I really get to the point, I know, ask my family, they say I’m a horrible story teller. Sorry!
Boosters needs parent volunteers! Due to graduating Seniors, we now have the lowest booster attendance in years. Boosters has been successful for our players and the football program over the years because of the family volunteers. We are concerned that we may not be able to provide the activities and services we have in the past for our players and the program without your help. We have three Officer and several committee positions open that need volunteers, as well as continued ideas and parent support. —RMHS Boosters Newsletter
