Thank you to all students, parents, administrators, trainers, faculty, staff and überfans that helped make this season special. Thank you to the dedicated coaching staff who share their time and enthusiasm for teaching soccer and coaching young men. Congratulations to the student-athletes who made the fall 2008 an outstanding soccer season. The standard of excellence for Boulder High Soccer is at a new height.
I am especially proud of the academic achievements of the student-athletes this fall. In addition to our many fine students and Academic All-State honorees, we must recognize all the student-athletes that put in the extra effort to academically better themselves. First and foremost, each Boulder High student-athlete is a student. There is no soccer at Boulder High without academic commitment.
While the teams in the program had great win-loss records and they enjoyed their share of big victories and emotional defeats, the games of this past fall will eventually fade into fragmented memories. In the end, the measures of success are not the statistics or wins, rather, they are the friendships, lessons and maturing that are the result of effort, selfless commitment to the team and dedication to personal betterment. The student-athletes of the 2008 Boulder High School Boys Soccer Program were truly successful. As coaches, we are fortunate to have been a part of it.
As I look back, I can’t help but to also look forward to fall 2009. I am excited to see how the student-athletes of 2009 embrace the legacy of the 2008 season.
