Great friends, competition and support

Dear Editor:

My name is David Mondry, I’m 11 years old, and this is my second year playing Aspen football in the Three Rivers Youth Football league. I really like playing in the league and look forward to it every year.

I have made some great friends, and the competition is awesome. I’m glad my teammates and I have the opportunity to do this every fall, and I want to thank some of the organizations and people who make it all possible, like the Elks Lodge No. 224, Keith Bulicz at the Aspen Recreation Department, Blair Elliott and his team at the Parks Department, High School Athletic Director Carol Sams, Jon Maletz at The Aspen Times for his great coverage, League Director Ron Morehead, and of course my coaches Mike Turchin, Shannon Sweeney and Jerry Cidzik.

I hope this league stays around for a long time! Thanks for making it all possible.

David Mondry
