EVERYONE IN BOYS ATHLETICS:​

Be on the lookout for a Sign Up Genius to be emailed out by me for your son to get his Athletic Locker and his football equipment.  We will be issuing football equipment and Athletic lockers August 9th and 10th.   I’m hoping we can get a majority of the boys lockers issued as well as football equipment.  If your son has his own football equipment, that’s fine, we just need to take a look at it to make sure it will all fit properly.  Helmets must be white with no stickers.   We pretty much supply everything.  We do have a decent supply of cleats to give away of various sizes.  They will be set out for your son to choose from if you want.   We have some mouth guards to give away…..but often times kids want to buy their own.  That’s fine.  So if your son isn’t playing football, he can still come in to get his Athletic locker….use the Sign Up Genius that I will email out.  

 

PLEASE REMEMBER…..your son MUST have a current physical AND completed the necessary Rank One forms.  The forms can be completed at:

Rankonesport.com

 

Many of you have done everything are ready to rock and roll….but as I look through Rank One….there are too many that haven’t done anything.  Please get this taken care of ASAP.  If you have emailed me a photo of your physical or handed it in during JAC…..you’re good to go!  I have LOTS of physicals to get entered into Rank One….so Rank One may show your son is not in compliance and that’s because I haven’t entered in his physical yet.  

 

It’s important for EVERYONE to get out and do some sort of conditioning/running as we approach day 1.  It’s HOT. Your body needs to be acclimated to working in hot weather.  Don’t over-do it, but make sure you are ready to go.  The hotter it is, the more you need to pay attention to your diet and water intake.  

 

That’s all I have for right now, please make sure you complete Rank One forms.  Please make sure you have a current physical.  7/8 football starts next week.  Be on the look out for a Sign Up Genius to be issued your football equipment and/or get your Athletic locker. 

 

4/28/2021

A decision will be made by 2:00pm in regards to games tonight.

Weather reminders:

 

  • If Thor-Guard sounds make sure EVERYONE leaves the playing area, including parents and go to a safe area.  Each stadium director will inform you of the areas the teams will evacuate to.

  • Wait for the 3 blasts before teams can return.

  • Do not cancel a game without communicating with me.

  • Please give the weather delay 30 minutes before considering a cancellation.

  • IF you started a game, then whatever the score was when the game was called, will be the FINAL SCORE.  Please input that score in Rankone.

  • IF you did NOT start a game, then that game will be a no contest. 

  • Athletics will make a decision to cancel all games by 2:00pm the day of the event.

Tryouts for soccer will start tomorrow morning. Tomorrow (3/30) is an A day, which means 7th grade tryouts will start at 8:00a, cleats on ready to go on the field. 8th grade can show up around 8:35a and be on the field ready to go at 8:45a.

 

Wednesday is a little different because we have a track meet in the afternoon. Wednesday is a B Day which means 8th grade will be starting at 8:00a on the field ready to go, ending at 8:45a. Wednesday for 7th Grade will be interesting. Coach Smith will have everyone not in the track meet, it’s doubtful we will get much soccer work in.

 

Thursday (4/1), is the final day of tryouts. It is an A day; 7th grade will need to be on the field by 8:00a and will finish around 8:45a. 8th Grade will finish tryouts during First period Thursday.

There are several changes for next weeks games. Please make sure you read the following carefully.

 

7th Grade:

There has been a change to the game schedule for next week.  On Monday, we play at MARCUS HS against Briarhill. Division 2 starts at 5:30pm.  Division 1 will start around 6:30pm. Monday is an A day so that means 7th grade will have early 7am practice.  Tuesday, normal practice during the period. On Wednesday, there is no early 7th grade practice.  Thursday, normal practice during the period and Friday 7th grade goes at 7am.  

 

8th Grade:

Monday is an A day which means 8th practices during the period, 8:15a-10:20a. Tuesday, there is NO EARLY 8th practice. Division 1 will play Hedrick AT Shadow Ridge MS, game time is 5:30pm. Division 2 will be playing McKamy MS at FMHS, game starts at 6:00p.  Wednesday is an A day so 8th will have practice during the period, 8:15a-10:20a.  Thursday 8th grade has practice early, 7:00am-.8:15am  Friday, 8th grade has practice during the period.  Hope that helps?

 

I’m still looking for someone with a camera that uses an SD card or mini SD card to record Division 2’s game. I have someone willing  to record the game, just need the camera. 

 

On the football  t-shirt order, you can order as many as  you want.

Tomorrow is a B day.  8th grade practices in the morning and 7th end of the day.  If you’re ever not sure about practice time…..PLEASE look at the practice schedule on our website….OR….the gigantic 2 million sized font calendar we have on the wall outside of our office.  There should never be a question as to practice time.

8th Grade:

Game Tuesday at Lewisville HS. Division 2 starts at 5:45.  Division 1 will start approximately 6:45/7:00. It’s my experience, Division 1 games rarely start on time.  Just throwing that out there.  

 

If your son has filled out a Jersey Mike’s form please make sure you have paid. $68 check to Jersey Mike’s.  Exact Cash is also acceptable.  After school Tuesday, Division 1 kids can go home if they want, I just ask that you be back by 5:30pm.  Division 2 will stay at school.  Jersey Mike’s food will be handed out immediately when kids come down to locker room.  D-1 can take their food home OR stay in locker room and eat.  Up to you.  D-2 will stay at school. 

 

We will have practice tomorrow morning.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR PRACTICE tomorrow morning.  PLEASE make sure you have washed your cloth items.  

I was told the laundry loops I ordered are on back order (of course) so you will be washing your own things for a while. 

 

Division 1, we will leave for the game at approximately 6pm on Tuesday.  When the game is over, the bus will return to school, however it is HIGHLY SUGGESTED that you get a ride home with a parent. If you do choose to ride home with a parent, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you sign out on the sign out sheet.  You cannot just leave after the game.  

 

GRADES. GRADES. GRADES.  Please make sure you stay on top of your school work.  If you don’t pass ALL of your classes at grade check time, you become ineligible.  You will still come to practice but you cannot go to games. 

 

Division 2 when your game is over, please go home with a parent.  Staying to watch Division is not gong to be an option.  Arrange for a parent to come pick you up from Lewisville High School. Please remember to sign out. 

Division 1 when your game is done, please sign out as well.  Trying to keep kids riding back to the school on the bus to zero if at all possible.  

 

7th Grade:

Just to update you Monday there is NO DIVISION 2 game!  The only game played on Monday is Division 1 at Lewisville HS. We play Huffines at 5:45.  Huffines does not have a Division 2 team.  

 

If your son has filled out a Jersey Mike’s form please make sure you have paid. $68 check to Jersey Mike’s.  Exact Cash is also acceptable.  Division 2 kids will get their food Monday and be asked to go home after school.  They CAN NOT ride the bus or join us on the sideline.  If Division 2 kids want to go to the game they MUST be accompanied by a parent and sit in the bleachers.  District is very strict about this so please abide by this regulation.  

 

We will have practice tomorrow morning.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR PRACTICE tomorrow morning.  PLEASE make sure you have washed your cloth items.  

 

I was told the laundry loops I ordered are on back order (of course) so you will be washing your own things for a while. 

 

Division 1, we will leave for the game at approximately 5:15pm tomorrow.  When the game is over, the bus will return to school, however it is HIGHLY SUGGESTED that you get a ride home with a parent. If you do choose to ride home with a parent, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you sign out on the sign out sheet.  You cannot just leave after the game.  

 

GRADES. GRADES. GRADES.  Please make sure you stay on top of your school work.  If you don’t pass ALL of your classes at grade check time, you become ineligible.  You will still come to practice but you cannot go to games.  

 

9/30/2020

I am now accepting checks for Jersey Mike’s if you’d like your son to have a pregame box meal prior to every game. The cost for 8 games is $68. They can fill out the form today for what they want to eat and turn money in tomorrow or Friday.  Please make checks out to Jersey Mike’s.  NOT FORESTWOOD!  Jersey Mike’s will deliver each game day to ensure your son gets food prior to each game.  

 

Boys, please make sure you PRINT your name legibly and include your grade!  Turn forms in to me ASAP. 

 

Now that we have begun our game schedule, please keep an eye on the practice schedule because it changes now that we are in game mode….depending on A/B day. 

 

Boys you can take a picture of the GIANT practice schedule outside our office too.  

 

We will be ordering football shirts at some point as well.  I will provide a link for you to pay online once the vendor is ready.

The scrimmage will be very short.  We will ride a bus to the scrimmage and it’s HIGHLY SUGGESTED that you take your son home following the scrimmage if possible.  The bus will go back to the school if you can’t take your son home.  

 

If you are taking your son home, THEY MUST SIGN OUT with me after the scrimmage.  You cannot just leave….find me to sign out.

9/21/2020

Hello everyone,

 

7th Grade:

Scrimmage Monday at FMHS at 6pm

 

8th Grade:

Scrimmage Tuesday at FMHS at 6pm

 

Attached is the format we will use for both scrimmages.  It will be very short and playing time is limited in this kind of situation.  

 

We will be dividing teams tomorrow. The teams will be posted after school.  PLEASE keep in mind, whatever team you end up on there is always potential to move UP or DOWN.  Just because you might possibly be placed on the B team doesn’t meant that’s where you will play the entire season.  Work hard in practice with a good attitude and you can move up.  Do not hang your head and kick the dirt because you aren’t placed where you think you should be.  

 

I’m proud of how far the boys have come so far….progress needs to be made…and attention to detail must be present.  

 

I will be sending out information soon on pre-game team meals from Jersey Mike’s and the football t-shirts we will be ordering.  

 

9/11/2020

Hello everyone….two absolutely OUTSTANDING practices this morning!!!!!!  

Very proud of you guys! 

 

If you need to order clothes (and some of you do lol) please use this link to order.  YOU CAN NOT ORDER AFTER SEPTEMBER 16th!  

 

Those of you who are waiting on clothes, they will arrive with this last order.  For the time being, please make sure your son is at least changing into shorts and t-shirt (navy or gray).  THANK YOU. 

 

I finally have water to the field so your son can refill water if need be or just get a drink.  But please make sure they bring something to practice to drink water out of.  

 

I hope you all have a great weekend!

 

Please be on the lookout soon for an email from Hudl.  We use it for video and our playbook.  You will self-enroll once I send the link and can study plays and video.  I can’t stress how important it is to the retention and success of you individually and us a team.  Please take advantage once the link is sent.  

 

Here is the link to the online store

8th Grade Football

Well that was an interesting day…...I appreciate your patience this morning as we waited for the gas leak to be fixed. I also truly appreciate how you all arrived at the time you’re supposed to….it’s little things like that which will allow us to keep playing football!  You know how I feel about little things…..they lead to…..? 

Hopefully you’re able to finish that sentence, if not, pay more attention at practice! lol

 

Tomorrow is early morning practice with staggered arrival times. Once it gets light enough, we will begin circle drill and you’ll have opportunity to get LOTS of reps.  Please make sure those are QUALITY reps.  Good throws and minimal dropped balls.  

 

QB/RB arrive at 6:50am

WR arrive at 7:00am

OL arrive at 7:10am

 

We will give you guys 25 minutes to shower and clean up for 2nd period.  Virtual Plus boys you are allowed to leave around 8:15am.  Please for the love of my sanity…….make sure the locker room is CLEAN and picked up when you leave for 2nd period.  No towels left behind on floor pretty please. Borderline begging after what the locker room looked like after the tornado called 7th grade football went through it.  Please take pride in your locker room and make sure it is CLEAN before we let you go tomorrow.  

 

I’m proud of the progress we’ve made so far.  Good things to come fellas!  Please keep being leaders of the school.  

7th Grade Football

Boys the locker room this morning was an absolute DUMP.  I know things were a little chaotic because of the gas leak and you were probably trying to hurry to get to 1st period…..but that is absolutely NO EXCUSE to leave the locker room like you left it.  

 

You know where the dirty towels are supposed to go….keep in mind I wash and dry them for your convenience….that doesn’t need to happen….I’m also going to wash and clean all of your football cloth and place it all back in your locker….that doesn’t need to happen either.  

 

I picked up dirty towels, threw away trash, and scrubbed a chocolate muscle milk that had petrified into the concrete bench because it had been poured out and left there.  I scrubbed for 15 minutes after school.  Instead of just going home, like all of you, I cleaned the locker room.  Let me inform you of one thing right now, it is NOT the janitor’s job to clean up after your inability to be responsible and throw things away.  The janitor WILL NOT dread coming into the athletic locker room. It WILL be clean. 

 

Obviously i’m not very happy.  I expect better and will get better.  If you see trash or towels on the floor, pick it up and put it where it needs to go. I don’t care if it’s yours or not, we are all a TEAM, and everyone needs to do their part.  One thing you will learn very quickly is I expect the locker room to be kept clean and if that isn’t happening, those of you with older brothers, they can inform you of the next step to help “remind” you.  

 

The good news is we get to try again tomorrow and tomorrow is a new day for a new chance to be better.  This is probably your first experience in a locker room which is why i’m cutting you some slack but just know to get where we want to be, you must take pride in your locker room.  Please remember that.  

 

Tomorrow’s practice is from 3:10-4:35.

 

 

9/9/2020

8th Grade Football

Arrival times or an A day:

QB’s and RB’s at 8am 

WR’s at 8:10am

OL at 8:20am

 

I ask that you wait outside SOCIALLY DISTANCED if you get dropped off early.  You will NOT be allowed in the locker room until it’s your time.  

 

We will come inside at 9:55am, giving them plenty of time to shower.  I will have clean towels for you them every morning. I will also be doing all of their laundry and put their clothes back in their locker.  You're welcome :) 

 

Once I get laundry loops handed out, i’ll do all of their laundry. 

7th Grade Football

To keep numbers down inside the locker room i’m asking that QB’s and RB’s get dropped off at 6:40am.  WR’s get dropped off at 6:50am.  OL get dropped off at 7am.  

 

If your parents are unable to drop you off at the above time, then you must SOCIALLY DISTANCE outside while you wait for your time. PLEASE DO NOT JUST COME IN LOCKER ROOM IF IT’S NOT YOUR TIME!

 

Arrival times or an A day:

QB/RB-6:40am

WR-6:50am

OL-7:00am

 

We will let online virtual kids go with enough time to get home.  Please pick your son up in the back of school.  Please don’t block traffic while waiting.  

 

I’m encouraging boys to shower.  They don’t want to spend the entire day gross and stinky.  I will have freshly washed towels for them every day.  Once we get laundry loops handed out, I will also do their laundry. 

 

Tomorrow i’m going to check on clothes that were ordered.  Keep in mind, we do have some on hand for purchase.  $10 for shirt and $10 for shorts.

8th Grade Football

When kids show up for morning practice on A/B days they need to show up at separate times based on their offensive position.  

 

For an A day:

QB’s and RB’s at 8am

WR’s at 8:10am

OL at 8:20am

 

For a B day:

QB’s and RB’s at 6:45am

WR”s at 6:55am

OL at 7:05am

 

This is to alleviate any unnecessary congestion in the locker room.  QB’s, RB’s and WR’s when you get dressed you immediately go outside and line up along the fence 6 FEET APART and wait for a Coach. Then you begin circle drill.  

 

Please, please, please pay attention to this arrival time.  

When virtual kids get picked up after practice, they will always get picked up in the front.

7th Grade Football

Just real quick….if your student/athlete is a Virtual Plus student and they are coming to school for practice, PLEASE make sure they check in through the front office. Always. Once practice is over at 4:30, you will ALWAYS pick them up in the back of the school.  PLEASE do NOT block the drive because busses and other people will need to get through.  Just find a parking spot and your son can walk to you.  THANK YOU!!!! 

 

9/7/2020

Hello Everyone!!!  

It’s finally here!  The days we’ve waited for since March!!  Time to get to work in Athletics!

We have re-vamped our practice schedule.  If you have had kids go through our football program in past years, our practice schedule is much different.  This practice schedule will greatly benefit our 7th graders once High School games begin on Friday nights.  8th Grade will benefit from practicing every day also.  

The practice schedule changes from day to day, depending on if it’s an A day or a B day. If you are ever in question, PLEASE look at our practice schedule or go to the FMS Athletics Google Calendar.  If you still have questions, please email me. I’ll help if I can.  

 

CROSS-COUNTRY

 

Any boy not trying out for football this week will participate in cross country workouts, ONLY on their scheduled day and only during the class period.  There will not be before or after school practice for cross country.  7th grade will have running workouts on Tuesday and Thursday this week.  8th grade will have running workouts on Wednesday and Friday.  7th graders must have a physical to participate in workouts.  Please bring a mask, water bottle, and towel (if needed). 

 

If you notice, 7th graders are practicing football in the morning on A Days.  Which means they may want to take a shower before their school day begins.  I will provide CLEAN towels each day.  You will need your own soap and shampoo.  Please consider showering after those morning practices boys.  

 

8th BOYS….when you get to school tomorrow please report to back gym and socially distance.  6 feet. Masks on.  THERE IS NO EARLY PRACTICE TOMORROW!!!!!.  You will report to school at normal time.  

 

7th BOYS…..you will have early morning practice on Wednesday (which is an A day). 

 

9/3/2020

8th GRADE FOOTBALL

We have a green light for practice tomorrow!! That being said, there is chance of storms in the morning. So we are going to hopefully finish handing out equipment. PLEASE abide by my request for A-L from 7:30-8:00. M-Z from 8:00-8:30. If you show up at the wrong time, you’ll have to wait outside until the correct time. Absolutely must have a mask and boys you were told too many times last Monday to stay 6’ apart at all times. If you can’t follow this guideline you will be sent home. 

 

9/2/2020

7th GRADE FOOTBALL

We are not handing out any equipment tomorrow (9/3/20) or having any kind of practice.  Please do not show up at the school for equipment, you won’t get in.  

 

We will continue handing out equipment next week.  Thank you and sorry for the late notice.

For attendance, I ask everyone to check in with me on WebEx at 1:45.  THANK YOU!

9/1/2020

8th GRADE FOOTBALL

Practice tomorrow, 9/2/2020, is cancelled.  

We only have cloth items to hand out to everyone and it won’t take very long at all. 

Depending on the condition of the field, stay tuned for further details on Friday’s practice.  

Right now, it’s a mess.  

 

Again, no practice on Wednesday.  Stay tuned for details on Friday.  

 

Take care everyone and stay dry!

8/31/2020

8th GRADE FOOTBALL

We are going to do the same thing on Wednesday but PLEASE try to pay attention to the time you’re supposed to get there.  I know there are extenuating circumstances but we had entirely too many kids there at 7:30 this morning.  

 

On Wednesday we will handout the rest of the equipment….A-L (last name) goes from 7:30-8:00.

M-Z goes from 8:00-8:30.  EVERYONE can’t show up at 7:30 again.  A few of you abided by that this morning and I appreciate that. Thank you!

7th GRADE FOOTBALL

Originally I said 3:00-4:30pm.  Not necessary.  We are still going 3:30-4:30.  Tuesday/Thursday

Please pay close attention to this next part……..IF YOUR LAST NAME IS A-L, YOU SHOW UP AT 3:30pm.  IF YOUR LAST NAME IS M-Z, YOU SHOW UP AT 4pm.  

 

We absolutely must keep the numbers in the locker room to a minimum. So A-L, show up first.  Then it’s M-Z.  While you’re waiting…...PLEASE wear a mask and maintain 6’.  

 

We are only going to worry about handing out helmets and shoulders pads tomorrow.  We will hand out everything else on Thursday.  

 

If you have your own equipment, you may bring it in.  We will also be issuing Athletic Lockers. Once you get your equipment, then please leave, do not hang around.  

 

8/30/2020

8th Grade…..We are going to begin handing out equipment tomorrow morning at 7:30am. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  We can ONLY have a small number of kids in the locker room at a time.  Last name...first letter A-L tomorrow morning 7:30-8:00am. Last name, first letter M-Z from 8:00-8:30 tomorrow morning.  

 

If you want to wait until Wednesday morning you sure can.  We will definitely not get everyone done tomorrow.  Which is why we are going to use Wednesday and Friday also.  

PLEASE REMEMBER WE CAN ONLY HAVE SMALL NUMBER OF KIDS IN THE LOCKER ROOM AT ONE TIME.  While waiting your turn please wear a mask and stay 6’ apart outside until I call you in.  

 

This is optional by the way.  Whomever doesn’t get their equipment this week, will get theirs next week when start In-Person school.  If you have your own equipment feel free to bring it in.  I will also be issuing your Athletic Locker so you will be able to put everything up.  If you are not playing football please just wait until In-Person school starts to get your Athletic Locker. 

7th Grade…….Tuesday and Thursday 3:00-4:30.  A-L on Tuesday from 3-3:30.  M-Z on Thursday from 3:30-4:30. 

 

PLEASE REMEMBER WE CAN ONLY HAVE SMALL NUMBER OF KIDS IN THE LOCKER ROOM AT ONE TIME.  While waiting your turn please wear a mask and stay 6’ apart outside until I call you in.  

 

This is optional by the way.  Whomever doesn’t get their equipment this week, will get theirs next week when start In-Person school.  If you have your own equipment feel free to bring it in.  I will also be issuing your Athletic Locker so you will be able to put everything up.  If you are not playing football please just wait until In-Person school starts to get your Athletic Locker.  

 

***IF YOU WANT TO WAIT UNTIL IN-PERSON SCHOOL STARTS TO GET YOUR EQUIPMENT YOU DEFINITELY CAN****

 

We will not be practicing football skills this week.  Trying to get as much equipment issued as possible

8/25/2020

FOR 8th GRADE…...we are moving practice time to 7:30am. 7:30-8:30 is our new A day practice time. Too many schedule conflicts starting at 8am.  Hopefully that helps.  Which means those of you that aren’t playing football, I will now begin my WebEx meeting with you at 9am.  Yay. 

 

7th GRADE…..still going from 3:30-4:30 on B days. 

 

FOR EVERYONE…...please please please remember a mask AND water!!  You will not be allowed to practice without both of those things. Too many kids over the last two days are missing masks or water.  Gotta have both!

 

Please make sure you are doing some conditioning on your own.  Those afternoon 7th grade practices are HOT so you need to prepare your body appropriately. 

 

On our athletic website is the cross-country schedule, football schedule and link to Rank One.  Please make sure you complete ALL of your Rank One forms.  https://mowrye.wixsite.com/forestwoodathletics

 

Look under “Latest News” for those things.  THANK YOU!
