D.C. Everest @ Wausau West
Sept. 14, 2018

Each sideline was very professional in their behavior and actions. Players from both teams showed great sportmanship in helping each other after plays and complimenting each other after plays. Wausau West personnel greeted us and showed us to our dressing areas and treated us with beverages before, during and after the game. Kudos to both teams for a well-played game!

Hayward/La Courte Oreilles @ Spooner
Sept. 7, 2018

I am a firm believer in accentuating the positive. I would like to commend both Spooner and Hayward/Lac Courte Oreilles student-athletes, coaches, students, parents, and community members for their exceptional exhibition of sportsmanship during Friday's football contest. All parties involved displayed what an extension of the classroom should look like by displaying positivity through out the contest. Both communities should be proud of the sportsmanship they displayed.

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!

Andy Otto (#13) displayed impresseive leadership after one of his teammates was issued a caution during the match. Andy identified the issue at hand and talked his teammate through it, remaining positive during his discussion, and not blaming anyone else for the issue. Andy will continue to be a positive influence on his teammates at Amery and on the game of soccer. Thank you, Andy!

Seymour @ Xavier
Sept. 7, 2018

Seymour and Xavier high schools should be proud of their football programs.  Coaches Molle and Hinkens are great leaders of their teams. Both teams displayed outstanding sportsmanship, teamwork and effort during their recent game. Both coaches were positive with players and officials during the entire contest. Players from both schools were observed numerous times during the game helping up opponents and making positive comments or gestures to opponents.  I would like to commend numbers 20, 21, 52, and 65 from Xavier and numbers 4, 8, and 24 for Seymour for being outstanding leaders on the field. The football programs at Seymour and Xavier are positive assets for developing our youth.
