I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving holiday. After talking with Providence's administration, because of the Governor's current restrictions we will not be able to have our post season team meeting in the next couple weeks as planned. We are not allowed to have a gathering of that size at school. This 4 week restriction "lockdown" will end on Friday December 18th. My plan right now is to try and have our post season meeting on Saturday morning Dec 19th at Providence. We need to have this meeting so we can discuss the past season, vote for 2021 captains, discuss the off-season and next year and also turn your equipment. I know a Saturday morning is not ideal, but I don't want to wait until January to have an after school meeting because many of the players will be in winter sports by that time. This meeting is very important for next season so we need maximum participation.
Right now the Dec 19th date is not confirmed. As soon as it is, or if we need a different date I will send out another message.
It is with a heavy heart and great disappointment that I need to inform you all that one of our players tested positive for COVID today. Due to the contact tracing of players and coaches who have been in close contact with this player, everyone in the football program has been quarantined through November 26th. This effectively ends our season; there will not be a C game tomorrow and we will not play our section playoff game on Tuesday. I know most of you are disappointed that we did not get to make a run at our section playoffs. Please keep at the top of your mind, the senior players on this team as this ends their high school football career. This isn't how I could have ever imagined a season would come to an end. I'm still trying to wrap my head around this and gather my thoughts. I will have more to say when we get a chance to come together in the next couple weeks.
That said, we will not be able to meet as a team, turn in gear and uniforms, select captains etc.. until after Thanksgiving. Plan on a team meeting sometime the week after Thanksgiving during the first week of December. Once I have a date set for that I will get word out through HUDL, the captains and the parent booster club.
If you have any questions or want to talk about this please feel free to get in touch with me.
Keep the faith, support each other and remember you will always be teammates.
The Lions Football Boosters Board of Directors is essential for the Lions Football player and fan experience. We are a board of volunteer parents who ensure we have activities covered all football season long such as pasta dinners, parent and player communications, photography and videography of games, special equipment needs, and so much more. We fund these activities through various fundraising efforts.
In December 2020, three board positions will open due to three members at the end of their tenure. If you are interested in serving on the board, we kindly request that you consider and submit your nomination as a new board of director member by November 17, 2020. No special experience is required – just a passion for helping to create the best football experience for our boys and willingness to help.
We are in special need for board members of 8thand 9thgraders to optimize the football program representation on the board, but all are welcome! Board members are committed to the objectives of Lions Football Boosters, namely, to promote, aid and provide ways to continually enhance the football program experience and maximize its function.
We are blessed with dedicated volunteers that actively serve as board members and look forward to receiving your nomination. Thank you for your continued support of Lions Football. If you have questions, please contact me.

It is a wonderful Lions Football tradition that high school players join together for team a pasta dinner the evening before each varsity game. This year, the menu will vary and will be individually packaged and served outside after practice on Thursdays for COVID protocols. Again this year the meal will be hosted at Providence Academy and catered by area restaurants.
In order to make the pasta dinners happen we need parents to help serve the meals, and pay $65 for each player to cover the cost of the meals. The Boosters subsidize 50% of the cost of the meal therefore, your cost is only $65. REGISTRATION IS NEEDED SO WE HAVE AN ACCURATE COUNT.
Dinners will be held on Thursdays at 5:30 outside near the doors where they boys exit the locker room unless otherwise noted on the schedule. This is a great way for players to be fed and build camaraderie.
To sign up a player for the pasta dinners, click here to register and pay for your son’s dinner. Thanks so much for registering your son and considering volunteering your time and supporting our players!
Lions Football Boosters is blitzing all football supporters to sign up as a booster member. Memberships include a Nike Lions Football cap this year (approx. $25 value) for $100 and higher memberships. Hats can be picked up at the first home game, Oct. 9, at the booster table prior to kickoff. GO LIONS!
