Multiple Teams · LHS Football Week August 12-16, 2019


Grangers-  I hope everyone enjoyed their summer!  School starts tomorrow & that means Football Season is here!  Thanks to the Big Blue Nation for putting on Granger Spirit Night…what a fun experience for our community & families!

Admin:  Please return ALL unsold discount cards to Coach Gibbs ASAP!  The Adidas Team Store should reopen (with new selections) tomorrow afternoon and close on August 18th.  Please make sure all players have shorts, t-shirts, socks, and tennis shoes in their football locker all year.  PE classes & Weight Training classes require them every day for players to get an A in the class.
We had a number of players missing practices with unexcused absences this past week, which has a negative impact on our team and the overall football program.  Being a member of the Granger Football Program is a privilege that is not guaranteed to anyone.  LaGrange Football is the 2nd winningest football program in the entire state of Georgia and holds 1 National Championship and 11 State Championship Titles.  Championship culture requires commitment, accountability, trust, character, and dedication…unfortunately, some upper-class players will not dress for Thursday’s Varsity Scrimmage against Kendrick.
