Season Ends with a Tough Loss in Overtime

Posted in FBall - Varsity Kealakehe on November 4, 2008 by keaaucougarsathleticboosters

Our Cougars lost a heart-breaker on the road … but they fought hard as always and we are very proud of their tremendous play this season.  Thanks goes out to our outstanding 2008 Varsity Cougars who gave fans exciting plays, incredible hits, and all-around great football to enjoy each and every week.  Never a dull moment … it was a great season … always entertaining!

Congratualtions go out to the Kealakehe Waveriders on another good season.  Good luck at states and be sure to represent the Big Island with pride!  Get ready for next year … there are a lot of HUNGRY Cougars just waiting for another shot at the BIIF title!

ANYONE CAN SUPPORT A TEAM THAT IS WINNING — IT TAKES NO COURAGE.

BUT TO STAND BEHIND A TEAM AND TO DEFEND A TEAM WHEN IT IS DOWN AND REALLY NEEDS YOU . . . THAT TAKES A LOT OF COURAGE.

(Hall of Fame Quarterback Bart Starr, Five Time NFL Champion)

COACH DANNY & KALEI … OUTRAGEOUSLY AWESOME D!

Thank you Will & Amy for taking care of our boys!

THANKS Coach Ab!

GO GRANDMA GO !!!!!

See you next year at ALL of Chase’ Games!

You are AWESOME !

Thank you coach Mike!

REAL GLORY IS BEING KNOCKED TO YOUR KNEES AND THEN COMING BACK.  THAT’S REAL GLORY.  (Vince Lombardi)

“Keep your heads up and no blame anybody or anything … we played our hearts out and EVERYONE knows what we can do on the field.  Support each other and move on.  Thanks to the coaches and especially to Coach Leo who always stuck by us, in good times and bad … we wouldn’t have had everything we had this season if it weren’t for him.  Stay proud to be a Cougar.

(Kapono Ige, addressing the Varsity team after the Kealakehe game.  A fine example of getting back up after getting knocked to your knees.)

Thank you Iris McGuire, Coach Leo and coaching staff, for giving our kids the OPPORTUNITY to play.

Thank you Coach Leo for the countless times that you have been a father figure to many of our players, supporting our players financially during times of hardship, waiting with our players EVERY evening until they get picked up and taking them home when they don’t get picked up, for feeding them when they’re hungry, and for trying your best to keep them on track academically and emotionally.  Like Kapono said, you have given many players a special, priceless gift – THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY.  The positive impact you have had on players through the years will never be fully known.   You believed in them when nobody else would … for that, the Keaau community is extremely grateful.

Thanks to teachers, EAs, counselors, and staff who put up with the players all year round and never stop supporting them … and thanks to parents and fans who make it all possible!

Our players and coaches have established a strong base during this past decade … and we are on the verge of a MAJOR COUGAR UPRISING in the decade to come!  GO COUGARS!
