Man, I couldn't of said it any better myself. Wished ya could of been there Friday night with us, hopefully you'll be able to make it to the Stars Mill game. I watched film on Clarke Central and from what I saw. I knew we could win the game, it just depended on how bad the boys wanted it. When I looked into those guys faces Friday night before the game started, I knew it was gonna be a fun night for some Raider football. Those boys showed a tremendous amount of heart and courage to go out there and win that game. After the game, the look in their eyes and Coach Reid and the other coaches eyes, I could tell they want that rematch with Kell badly. Coach Reid will have them ready this week to take on a Stars Mill team who is in my eyes much better than Clarke Central. But if we come out playin like Friday night, The Raiders will be ok. For all of you Raider Nation fans out there, I'm gonna throw a challenge to ya. I challenge each and every single one of you if you come to the game Friday night, to be as loud as you possibly can. You all just don't know how important it is for the boys to hear you all cheering them on. If ya can't yell, I will have some more horns with me Friday night, so make sure you find me. We need to once again, turn the Visitor side at Stars Mill into a home away from home and make our boys feel comfortable. All the coaches and Players told me after the game Friday night that it makes a big difference for them when they are on that field and they hear the chants of "DEFENSE" going in the stands. So I'm challenging all of you coming to the game, be ready to make some noise. For those of you that just want to sit there and do nothing, well move over and make room for some loud and crazy Raider fans. THIS IS THE PLAYOFFS, NO REASON WE SHOULD BE SITTING DOWN WITH OUR MOUTHS CLOSED. I promise you, your voice will come back in a day or so. Enjoy the Holidays because come Friday, we travel to Fayetteville to take over Stars Mills Stadium. GOOOOO!!!!! RAIDERSSSS!!!!!
I am going to be honest with you all, I. Didn't feel like we had a very good chance last night, being as young as we are. That is the only short coming that I have said all year that the Raiders, and saying that is scary.. to be this good and this young! Wow at the next few years.. But looking at the present! Its hard sometimes to show my support for the Raiders ONLY because I coach at another High school in the county, I heart is and forever will be at East. I have said it before I may wear other colors right moment but ibleedblack&silver... I am so stinking proud of these kids exp the ones I coached at EPMS the past few seasons, it really has a big piece in my heart. I played blead cryed laughed tore my knees to hell and back for East Paulding football along with many others in the years of the 0-30 streak.. it is so amazing how far the program has come. After watching the highlight video I had tears streaming down my face.... call me what you want those who know me know that I am an emotional person and I LOVE ME SOME EAST PAULDING RAIDER FOOTBALL!! Keep it up boys let's get Paulding County a STATE TITLE! Now is as good a time as any!
