Mosinee @ Ashland
Sept. 7, 2018
Our officiating crew is indeed honored to write a sportsmanship letter on behalf of the Ashland Oredockers and the Mosinee Indians during their Week 4 Football Contest. Thank you to Ashland High School and Athletic Director Brian Miller for their ability to make the transition to a new location easy and with a dose of fine hospitality. We acknowledge the outstanding sportsmanship exhibited by both football programs. Coach Larson and Coach Martens have done a fine job with their football programs in demanding outstanding sportsmanship. Coaches did what they do best, coach and allowed the officials to do their job. They asked questions politely and accepted the answers provided. The sportsmanship and positive behavior exhibited by the coaching staff bled into the actions of the players. Players were respectful to each other, helped each other off the turf, and communicated effectively with officials. We were so grateful that the receivers and backs provided the ball to the umpire quickly so as to keep the game moving at a consistent pace. Also, the language was kept clean and comments exchanged with the opposition positive. Also, the chain gang during the contest was impressive and took pride with their responsibilities. Last, the wing officials would like to thank the ball boys of each team. Dylan of Mosinee and Logan of Ashland did a fantastic job in being attentive and fulfilling their duties in a prompt manner. Hats off to Coach Larson and Coach Martens and their staff for teaching the most important element of sports, Sportsmanship!
