ECC Mobile Teacher Tablets /
FFA Youth Roundup Fundraiser /
JrHi Football -vs- Tahlequah

RAM AG Youth Roundup partners with local sale barns in Texas and Oklahoma to help raise money for FFA chapters and High School Rodeo teams. Collinsville, Oklahoma was chosen to participate this year.
Collinsville Livestock Sales and The Feed Store were very kind to provide the use of their facilities, while RAM Ag Youth Roundup also provided a free steak dinner and door prizes to approximately 300 people.
Collinsville FFA members Dalton McCoy, Morgan West, Leigh Brown, Julie Branen, Katsy Smalygo, and LeAnn Morrison helped to serve the meal.
The Collinsville FFA chapter would like to give very special thanks to…RAM AG YOUTH ROUNDUP, COLLINSVILLE LIVESTOCK SALES, and THE FEED STORE for hosting the dinner.
We would also like to thank everyone who came out to show their support by enjoying a free meal and donating to our chapter. Raising $3,000 in one night would not have been made possible without Kent Smalygo making a generous donation and Collinsville Livestock Sales matching the proceeds. Thanks to the generosity of those who attended, we raised over $3,000 to benefit the Collinsville FFA Chapter.

Mobile Tables For ECC Teachers
The ECC teachers all received mobile tablets for their classrooms. These tablets connect to our Smartboards and allow our teachers to freely move around the classrooms while utilizing their Smartboards and Brightlinks. The PTO purchased these with our Walk-A-Thon money we raised last school year. They are a wonderful tool for our classrooms! Thank you Collinsville for supporting our school!

JrHi Football Report
(from 9/23/2014 Tahlequah Games by Coach Tom Redding)

The Collinsville Cardinal Jr. High football teams traveled to Tahlequah this past Tuesday night for a Metro Lakes Conference contest. After all three contest were complete the Cardinals gave the Eye of the Tiger, a black eye, as the Cardinals swept the series in all three games.

In the 7th grade contest the Cardinals dominated the game. The defense swarmed the Tiger backs and the offense was overpowering all night long. Cardinals win a big one 37-17 and improved their record to 4-0. Cole Dugger, the Cardinal QB, was removed from the game in the first quarter as a precautious measure and was reported doing fine at the time of this publication.

The Cardinal 8th grade team proved without a doubt that we are a really good football team. The offensive line plowed huge holes for the running backs to run through and the Cardinal defense kept the Tigers caged all night long. Cardinals dominate 31-8. No injuries were reported. The Cardinals improved their record to 4-0.

The money game of the night proved to be a slugfest. Both teams played great defense. Both teams proved they could move the ball outside of the red zone. But the Cardinals were just too dominating in the passing game. Cardinals win a close one 12-6. No injuries were reported. The freshman improve their record to 3-1.

A big thanks to the Cardinal Moms. They prepared over 150 meals for the players, trainers and coaches. Everyone enjoyed the treat. Also a real big thanks to the Cardinal Nation for traveling to Tahlequah to support the players. Our stands were full and the Cheerleaders led great cheers all night long.

Our next action will be a non-conference contest at Ponca City on October, 2nd. Games begin at 5pm. Hope to see you there.

Coach’m up
Tom Redding
