soccer: done.

Tonight was the soccer banquet. It's now the end of these.
After watching R. grow and develop in this sport, it was a culminating and gratifying moment to witness. Tonight, he was awarded several things, and I couldn't have been more pleased for him. He was one of four on his team to make the Midland-Wachusett All-stars. He also earned an award called the Myles J. McCarron award, given each year in memory of an LHS soccer player who died in a tragic accident his junior year. The coach chooses the recipient, and the award reads (in part):

"Friend and Teammate
Star Athlete
A Memorial Tribute
Your gentle personality will shine and live forever in our hearts and memories"
It was an honor for him to receive.
I was touched.

Yay for R!! What an honor to get that award?

Congrats to Rog, I know he deserved this after being with him this summer. Running try outs and having no coach are just the starters - add that to the resume. Love, Aunt Amy Jo

Congrats R...I'm not surprised. You are a great kid. Thanks for being such a great example to my kids - especially Bubby.
