Abbotsford @ Marathon
Aug. 31, 2018
Our officiating crew would like to acknowledge the outstanding sportsmanship displayed by the Marathon Abbotsford head coaches, their staff, and entire sidelines during their contest. We experienced a spirited contest between two talented and hardworking teams, and the officials would like to applaud the actions of both head coaches. The coaches did an exceptional job of modeling positive sportsmanship. Coaches were upbeat with their commands, kept their players motivated and working hard, and were positive and encouraging with their comments and actions. Their coaching styles and their modeling of proper behavior allowed the players to be positive and attentive to the rules, exhibit good sportsmanship, and listen to the suggestions of the officials. We appreciate the optimistic actions of both school’s football programs. We were honored to officiate the class acts of Head Coach Ryan Winkler and Head Coach Jacob Knapmiller and their staffs. We wish them continued success in their ability to teach the most important role of sports, Sportsmanship!
