I want to start out by congratulating and praising the efforts of Coach Josh Ragsdale and the Adamson Leopards football team for the stance they have taken to stamp out domestic violence. In light of recent developments that have taken place in college and professional football, it's nice to see high school players knowing and understanding how damaging this type of behavior can become. Because of Adamson's efforts last year in getting the most people to pledge against domestic violence, they will be playing Kimball at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on October 3rd. I hope to see many of you at the game. What a tremendous accomplishment.
A lot of our football teams were open last week resting up for district play, but we did have some impressive wins. Seagoville remained undefeated and SOC got their first win of the season. South Oak Cliff has played a brutal non district schedule but will be ready to compete for the 13-5A district title. Also winning last week were Adamson and Wilmer-Hutchins. By virtue of their big win over Cedar Hill, the Skyline Raiders are now ranked #8 in the state 6A rankings.
I met again with our Communications Department and we should be rolling out a very impressive web site very soon. We want this to be an instrument for you to use to find any news or information in reference to Dallas ISD athletics. We are going to highlight our teams, athletes, and coaches as well as posting our schedules and other important information. Stay tuned.
I hope we all understand the value athletics plays in a child's life who chooses to participate. I know there will be challenges, ups, and downs, but learning how to cope with all athletics has to offer, will definitely make the student a better person. Many of us who have participated in UIL athletics, will say the lessons we learned by competing has helped us become who we are today. For our parents, THANK YOU for the many sacrifices you make to allow your child to be part of our programs. You're doing the "right thing".
See you at the games.
