Sportsmanship Plus-Football

Prescott @ Rhinelander
Friday, Aug. 17, 2018

Our officiating crew would like to applaud the coaches, players and spectators of the Prescott Cardinals for their fine display of sportsmanship during their Week 1 football contest. We experienced a well-coached and discipline team. The coaching staff provided positive words of encouragement to their players and communicated with the officiating crew in a constructive manner. The players focused on playing hard, listened to officials, and kept their words and actions on the field positive. It was so encouraging not to hear inappropriate language that is becoming so commonplace. Also, the fans were spirited and kept their words helpful and encouraging. The sportsmanship displayed by the community is what high school sports is all about: learning, growing, and having fun.  Our linesman summed it up in one word “respect.” We congratulate Coach Haglund for establishing an environment of positive sportsmanship.  We were honored to officiate their game and wish them the best of success.
