Chelsea High School Football
Earlier this week, Chelsea High School’s football team had their first game of the season against the Marquette Titans. During this game, the Hawks were able to win by a score of 24-10. This was a huge improvement for the team. The Hawks were also able to come up with some great plays on the defensive end, which helped the team to stay in the game.
Amongst the plethora of senior class jackasses, Rafe Reyes stands out as a true blue snob who has the wherewithal to back up his claim to fame. He is also the brains behind the snazzy named Blue Devils who are on track to make it to the conference title game this year. In fact, he is so good at his craft that he has been tasked with the job of defending the sonic sonic for the team’s first scrimmage game in three years. Aside from being a collegiate football savant, Reyes is also a bona fide scholar and has been a fixture in the Chelsea High School booster club since day one.
Despite a shaky defense and a surprisingly lackluster season, senior Owen Nikischer has a lot to be proud of. Not only has the middle linebacker earned the respect of his teammates, he’s also made the honor roll as a student athlete. The aforementioned aforementioned ol’ is no doubt a worthy contender on a team that boasts a host of athletic talent. Other notables include senior bookends Rafe Reyes and Jeret Hirst, senior captains Ben McMurray and Jake Kotlar, and freshman quarterback Thomas Steele. Not to mention the myriad academies in the classroom, Owen has learned that there is more to life than being a high school football player. Hopefully this season is a sign of good things to come. The best part of it all is that he’s only a year away from his college football sexiest and best of times.
Homecoming king and queen
Traditionally, American high schools crown a Homecoming king and Queen for the football game. These students are then celebrated in a school parade. These kings and queens usually wear a crown. This tradition began in the early 20th century.
The Student Council at Chelsea High School voted not to crown a Homecoming king and queen in 2017. They felt that electing a Homecoming king and queen would undermine the #WhyYouMatter campaign.
This year, Chelsea High School started a new award called the Excellence Award. The Excellence Award will be awarded at the Homecoming football game and recognizes positive contributions to the school. The awards will be based on academics, creativity and integrity. The winner will be announced at the game.
The campaign was launched in the 2016-17 school year. Art teachers and faculty members encouraged students and teachers to take photographs of every student to highlight their accomplishments. They wanted to create a more inclusive environment at the high school. In addition, they wanted to encourage community service by collecting canned goods for the Food Bank of Alabama.
New head coach
Previously coached by Brad Bush for 21 years, the Chelsea High School Bulldogs have hired a new head coach for football. The school’s fourth coach in the last 46 years will be Josh Lucas, a former Allegan High School head coach.
The new coach will begin his role Friday. He has been notified of his new position for the past three weeks. Cassity has a 67-53 record in his career, guiding all but one of his teams to playoffs. He is looking forward to building a winning team at Chelsea.
Chelsea High School will move from Class 6A to Class 7A in the next school year. The team will compete in Region 3 that includes Hoover, Vestavia Hills and Spain Park.
Whether it’s a student-athlete in a soccer game or an offensive lineman in football, sportsmanship is a key component of any successful education-based activity program. As part of their efforts to create a culture of good sportsmanship, high schools must establish a set of rules for their athletes to follow.
The National Federation of High Schools has made sportsmanship its number one point of emphasis for the upcoming school year. The organization has added bylaws to its statewide ejection policy and awarded an annual team sportsmanship award.
While a lot of attention is paid to coaches, players, and game officials, everyone has a role to play in creating a positive atmosphere. It is a win-win for everyone if players are taught the best way to represent their school in the most respectful and honest manner.
