Letter: Thanks to Elks Lodge and coaches

I would like to thank the Aspen Elks Lodge for sponsoring Aspen Youth Football. I also would like to thank all of my coaches, especially my head coach, Mike Thomas, and Ron Morehead for all their hard work. Also, thanks to our parents for their support and cheering us on.

This is my first year playing football, and I have learned a lot. I already can’t wait for next year. Without the support of the Elks, we would not have such a great program. Without the coaches, I would not have learned so much in such a short time. My teammates and I went undefeated this season played the Super Bowl championship game Saturday in Glenwood Springs.

Thanks again to everybody and wish us luck this Saturday!
