Imagine you’re a Stacey Middle School student, going to pick up your yearbook. You paid for it early, and have been waiting all year to see your book of memories. You lift the yearbook into your hands and flip through to see it just as perfect as you remember, full of beautiful snapshots in time. But, how did it come to be that way?
Some of the most promising football players tried out for the Stacey Football Flag team on Sept. 18-19 and 21st.
Mr. Cota held the 6th and 7th-grade football tryouts on the 18th which consisted of drills to see the student’s skills in action. Mr. Cota seemed excited about this upcoming season and about training boys and girls to develop their skills and their teamwork. “My hopes are always that we have good characters and that they can develop into leaders,” he says.
On September 19th, 8th-grade tryouts began. The students also did drills to see how they played together. Final tryouts were the on September 21st. Mr. Cota was impressed with the expertise his team of great players exhibited. They will be representing Stacey for flag football this year against Johnson and Warner Middle School.

The team plays Warner on October 10th at Warner, Johnson on October 24th at Johnson, and both Warner and Johnson on November 14th here at Stacey. Listen to the announcements for more information.
