Copy that on the class act. Directors spoke to the parents, encouraged everyone to watch from wherever they felt comfortable, and assured us that all spots were open and everyone from last year had to try out again and make the team.
Lots of talent on the field too.
No 1-on-1s or 2-on-1s ... some line drills and then on to half-field and full-field scrimmages. Several evaluators out there with boards taking notes the whole time. As well run as any other tryout I've seen.
And when it was over there were Recon coaches/evaluators (not sure who is who) at the gate thanking the boys for coming down and shaking hands. A simple thing, but left a good impression on us.
At these young ages those kids who shake your hands are the ones to remember.
At these vents those directors that shake your hands are ones to respect
