Let’s rally for our Skiers

Dear Editor:

To all you football fans out there in the Roaring Fork Valley, this Saturday the Aspen High School Skiers will host Platte Valley High School in the first round of the 2010 2A Colorado State Football Playoffs. Game time is 1 p.m. Saturday on the Aspen High stadium turf.

The Skiers will take their 8-2 record into the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year with high hopes of winning AHS’ first 2A State Football Championship. Saturday is the first step on their quest. This year’s team plays a tough, hard-nosed brand of football with a punishing running game, efficient passing attack, and an attacking, turnover-causing defense.

Saturday’s weather is forecasted to be cool and clear, perfect football weather. If you were lucky enough to have been at last season’s playoff game against Faith Christian you know you’re in for a pigskin treat. Come on out and cheer on the boys who have put in a tremendous amount of hard work to get here.

See you at the game!

Tom Nugent
