Just An Observation

The other day I had the pleasure of taking my nephew to a Varsity Baseball game at Pat Colpitt Field. After getting to the facility, we were allowed to go into the dugout before the game and meet some of the players getting ready to take the field. My nephew and I were welcomed with open arms and greeted with respect and warmth. He even got to take a picture with his favorite player, Blake Burd. I was struck by the class that these young men showed in welcoming my nephew into their environment. I got to thinking and it suddenly hit me that every athletic venue that I have taken either my nephew or children to has had the same feeling attached to it. Whether it be watching Seth Boomer, Brett Erickson, or Levi Draper carry themselves with class on Sallee Field, boys and girls basketball continually achieving both success and respect on the court, wrestlers continuing to push forward a tradition deep in titles and academic achievement, or simply baseball players taking their time to take a picture; the thread of maturity and class has been the constant. The real value of an education at Collinsville seems to be connected with carrying oneself with class. The teachers and coaches that impact the lives of these kids are evident by the product that they produce. This product is not necessarily accomplishment but character. I am proud to say that my family has moved back into town. I am proud to say that my children will have the distinct pleasure of having amazing teachers and coaches. We should all take a step back and talk to these kids. We would quickly see that our town is being represented by those who embody what Collinsville means to me. They are honest, hardworking, genuine, and above all else tough. It really is great to be a Cardinal.

Matt -- I agree completely. I have had the honor of watching these "kids" up close for enough years that I have photos of some seniors now from when there were in kindergarten and elementary. They are not always perfect, but they are always trying hard and learning and respectful. They are a class act: Cardinal students, parents & teachers.-- Ted Wright
