2020 Season Player Recognition & 2021 Season Launch

Hello Lions Football Parents & Players,

The Lions Football Booster board feels it is important to formally recognize the 2020 season and players in a group, and to look forward to the 2021 season. Since we are unable to have a banquet right now and many have moved forward with winter sports, there will be a brief Zoom call for players and parents of the 2020 season with Coach Rooney on Sunday, January 24 from 7-8 p.m. 

Coach will recognize players, announce awards and captains (voted by the players), and give a final send off to seniors with their teammates present.  We will be talking about 2021 Season so please plan to attend.

We look forward to you joining us January 24 - mark your calendars now!

Please check your email for login details.

Message from Coach Rooney (Dec. 12)

Lions Football,

We have approval to finally have our post season team meeting and equipment turn in next Saturday regardless of what the Governor does with the current lockdown. However, the manner in which we have the meeting is dependent on what the Governor does. It will happen in 1 of 2 ways:

1. The lockdown restrictions end or are loosened: we will all meet together in the PA main gym at 10:00AM to have the meeting and then do equipment turn-in. We will be done before noon.

2. The lockdown is extended: In this case we will need to have multiple small group meetings and turn-ins at different times spread out between 10AM and 1PM. I am putting together the groups and creating a schedule for when each group will be scheduled to come in. If and when the lockdown get extended, I will send out another message with the groups posted. Hopefully we won't have to do this option.

I cannot stress enough how important it is for you all to attend this meeting. I know it's on a Saturday, the first day of Christmas vacation, but this is the earliest we could have made this happen. This is when we can get some closure on last season, talk about this current off-season and next year. Plus we need to vote for team awards and captains. And finally to turn in all your equipment and uniforms.

I will send out another message later next week when we know what the Governor has decided. But plan on the meeting happening next Saturday morning one way or another.

Go Lions!

Coach Rooney

Message from Coach Rooney (Nov. 27)

Lions,

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.

Go Lions!

Coach Rooney

Message from Coach Rooney

Lions Football,

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.

Go Lions!

Coach Rooney

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.

Pasta Dinner Signup

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!
