Jake Graham Completes Basic Training In Georgia

I just wanted to share about our recent trip to Fort Benning Georgia to see Jake. PFC Robert Jacob Graham has now completed Army Basic Training. He will remain in Georgia for another 5-6 weeks to complete his Advance Individual Training. If Jake elects to continue his training accepting a position in Airborne traiing, he will remain in Georgia until mid-November. Jake has truly excelled in this environment in regards to his physical conditioning and leadership capabilities.

90% of the soldiers completing Basic Training were 18-19 year old boys. These are our children, your friends, your neighbors. These are young men and women willing to protect your rights and your freedoms. As Fall starts the football season, remember the National Anthem sung at the start of the games is not just a formality, but an opportunity to show respect to past and present soldiers for our freedoms. With our most recent loss of a young Collinsville soldier, take a moment to show respect, stand at attention, take off your hat, place your hand over your heart and give that moment in time to respect those or are willing to give the ultimate sacrafice for YOU, YOUR children, YOUR family, YOUR friends and YOUR neighbors.

Jr. Hi Update
September 23rd 2011

The 7th and 8th grade Tahlequah Tigers traveled to Sallee Field Thursday night in hopes for a Metro Lakes Conference victory road trip back home to Tahlequah. The road trip back home to Tiger Land was full of bumps and bruises as the Cardinals knocked off all the Tiger stripes.

The 7th grade Cardinals put together a dominating aerial and ground attack against the Tigers. The blocking up front and downfield was outstanding. The defense punished and captured the Tiger offense all night long. The tackling was aggressive as the Cardinals swarmed the ball. The kicking game continues to show signs of improvement. Cardinals win, 24-6 and improve their record to 3-0 in the Metro Lakes Conference standings. No injuries were reported.

The 8th grade Cardinals defense was outstanding all night. The gang tackling punished the Tiger running backs, while the D-line pounded the Tahlequah lineman. The only play the Tigers could sustain was the quarterback sneak. After a halftime adjustment the QB sneak was pushed back. The offense moved the ball with great precision. The speed of the Collinsville receivers and power of the Cardinal running backs was too much for the Tigers. Cardinals win 20-6 and improve their record to 2-1. No major injuries were reported.

The 9th grade game was a slugfest. Both side moved the ball up and down the field. Neither team could punch the ball into the zone. The Cardinals played with several key players still sidelined due to injuries. All of the Cardinals stepped up and played a terrific game. With just seconds let in the game, Tahlequah lined up for a 17 yard Field goal attempt. The Cardinals used their time outs to freeze the Tahlequah kicker. Tigers win 3-0.

The coaches were very proud of the freshmen efforts. We just got to get well and better as we prepare for Coweta.
The Cardinals travel to Coweta next Thursday September 29th for their next Metro Lakes contest. Check back in a few days for directions to the football field.
A special THANKS goes out to everyone that makes our program a success. The teachers, administration, support staff, concession attends, press box staff, chain crews, cheerleaders, student trainers, parents and fans. As Coach Riley says, “It’s great to be a Cardinal”.

Note: I put this on the intro page when I received it Friday (the day before the event) and am placing it on this page (after the event) just so it is archived ... as the intro page is temporary and changes daily. I was unable to attend the flyin this year as I had volunteer duties at Founder's Day for the Chamber (and also missed the band at Owasso Contest). -- Ted 9/25/2011
