With the close of our season I want to say thank you to so many, the coaches and their families for their sacrifices while coaching these young athletes, the parents for having to arrange transportation each morning at 7am for practice, and having trust in our coaches to coach your son, our Quarterback Club, Mrs. Jeannie Smalygo and our M.S. Cheerleaders for their support each week, our student assistants for having water and first aid for our players, our chain crews, press box workers, administrators, our great teachers, and the Cardinal Family for all the great support.

Cardinal Football -- Jr. High Update (Grove) -- 10-13-17

The Collinsville Cardinals 7th, 8th, and 9th grade teams flew into Ridgerunner Stadium Thursday night for a Metro Lakes Conference show-down. All three games were fun to watch. Each game displayed outstanding football skills being developed by each program. If you enjoy offensive football, there was plenty of scoring by each school.

7th grade lose a tough one 28-12. No injuries were reported.
8th grade win a big one 22-8. No injuries were reported
9th grade win Big and I mean BIG, 26-15. No injuries were reported.

We would like to thank, The Red Zone and the QB club, for the meals they made for the players, student assistants and coaches. The meal was very tasty and hit the spot for the long road trip. Speaking of road trip, our transportation department provided us with three new buses with A/C. The ride was smooth and comfortable for the players. Also, I would like to thank Norm Van Sickle for making the trip to take pictures of our players while in action.

Our next action is a quick turn-around. The Cardinals travel to Skiatook for a show-down in a Metro Lakes Conference contest. Game time is 5pm. We need the Cardinal Family to bring great sportsmanship, rowdy fans, and some Oskee Wow- Wow. This will be our final game for the 2017 season. Hope to see you there.
