Light Weight Gold Wins National Championship!!
*Coach Wax does it again, winning his second National Title!
THE RECAP ON THE RING
What a trip! Great weather, Great friendship, Great football!
All Bill's Players and Families should take pride in your 2016 Big Ten Lightweight Gold Team for becoming the 2016 National Champions!
After an invigorating 22 hour bus ride, the team settled in. We had the pleasure of meeting the coaches and players or the Ridge Road Titans, our semifinal opponent, the day prior to our game. Obviously a quality program with the proper objectives instilled in their team. The Titans brought quality coaching, quality players and a lot of speed to the Thanksgiving Day matchup. Your Bill's followed the game plan perfectly and played for the name on the front of the Jersey. Incredible team defense, only allowing one first down, led to the 28-0 win. A trip to the National Championship game was earned and the respect and friendship of a great opponent was gained.
Thanksgiving Dinner as a Bills family was enjoyed. Ocean side coaches meetings to prepare for the Oak Lawn Outlaws, our National Championship game opponent. Stacey Rosen coordinated off time activities for the players. Oak Lawn brought a large, physical presence to the Championship game. A completely different type of opponent. Your Bills made the proper adjustments and trusted their coaches and teammates, scoring on 4 of 5 first half possessions to take a 26-0 halftime lead. Again total team defense owned the Outlaws and only gave up 2 first downs the entire game. The offense clicked, keeping the Outlaws guessing, a second half touchdown was added to produce the final score of 32-0. National Champions!
A season long teaching lesson of playing as a team, for all the right reasons comes to fruition. Playing together always wins! Trust always conquers!
So proud of these boys, these families and these coaches!
2016 National Champions................Forever!
See you all in the Spring for 7 on 7 football….
