Pop up adds

I have just noticed that the "free" provider for this site has started placing pop-up adds embedded in the text.  Please ignore those.  Owasso 8th Grade Football does not endorse any programs or companies, its just the price we have to pay for our "Free" site.


Apologies.


Ram Card Sales

Posted on August 9, 2018 at 11:00 PM Comments comments (0)

This is our one and only fundraiser.  Each player has been given a set of 10 cards to sale.   Participation is voluntary.  Any unsold cards can be returned to the Coaching staff by August 22.  If a player sales all 10 they can request an additional 10 cards.  The more they sale, the more prizes they earn (and more money the Booster Club has to purcahse things for the players).  The players were given a sheet along with the cards that explains how the program works.


As was explained in the parent meeting.  It cost about $400 dollars a year to play football (equipment, camps, meals, etc.)  Your Booster Club Membership provides that funding.  Not every player/parent can pay $400 so every card we sale helps prevent the Booster Club and Ram Football from going in the hole and keeps Ram football competing at the highest level.  


Your support is greatly appreciated.

Meet The Rams

Practice Friday will begin at 3pm.  This will be our first full pads practice.  We will practice at the 8th Grade Center until a little after 4pm then we will walk to the High School Football field.  We will be taking a team picture for the High School Football program at 4:30.  A little after 5:30 we will have an inter-squad scrimmage on the High School Field until about 6:25ish.  The Booster Club will then provide a meal for the team.  Once the players have finished eating they are free to leave on their own.  The locker room will be open until 7:30pm if they want to put away their gear or they can take it home and bring it back on Monday.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Parent/Player meeting.  If you know of someone who was not there but is interested in playing, please have them contact Coach Blair as soon as possible.


Players that have all of their forms completed and submited have been added to the team roster which can be checked by clicking on the "The Team" tab at the top of the page.  If your name is not on the roster, don't panic, we may be waiting on the Athletic Department to verify the paperwork.  If your name does not appear after a few days, contact Coach Blair to find out what the issue may be.  Coach Blair will update the roster at least once a day up to Monday afternoon.  


Remember to hydrate and start getting used to the heat by spending some time outdoors each day.  Enjoy the last few days of summer.  See you Monday.
