Minutemen show up but lose to Arcadia 21-20

JTP-maranatha-high-school-football-arcadia2-1The Minutemen were able to hold their own against the Apaches through most of the game. After a series of tough calls, Arcadia pulled ahead to win 21-20.
JTP-maranatha-high-school-football-arcadia-JV-1According to Coach Bogan, it was still a good game. During the post game huddle, Coach assured the players that he is still proud of them and that they played extremely well.

JTP-DDs-Chick-and-Cat-Shack-1Can’t forget the halftime Southern American cuisine of DD’s Chick and Cat Shack!

In support of the MHS Boosters, JV parent, David McClendon, supplied fans with his world famous, Southern chicken and cat fish.

DD’s is a full service caterer, specializing in good, home-town cookin’, from smoked brisket to spicy shrimp po’ boy sandwiches .

But the staple of DD’s Chick & Cat Shack is the Dirty Tea. Along with their Cherry Lemonade and Swamp Water mix, people come far and wide just for a cup-full to drink with their food. Check it out!


Saints Defeat MHS Varsity 41-07

Varsity’s first season loss was tough for the Minutemen, but according to the coaches, the players still did well against one of Maranatha’s more difficult rivals. The boys never gave up, and that makes all the difference.

Photography Help

I handed over an extra camera to the Managers to take pre-game photos of the sidelines. I thought they all did a great job. The last nine shots are credited to Managers. Excellent work, ladies!

JV and the difficulty of defeat

Maranatha–high-school–football-san-dimas-saints-JVThursday’s score against San Dimas: 66-0 San Dimas.

Winning comes at a cost, and sometimes we need to loose a battle in order to learn how to win the war. Although football is not war, it is a series of battles against our personal weaknesses and learning how to overcome as a team. There’s always next week…!

Victory Against St. Monica

Maranatha-highschool-football-2015-season-kick-offOur first game of the season is hopefully a prelude to more wins to come. Finishing up at 44-0 against St. Monica is not a bad way to kick off the Miniutemen’s 2015 season.

What is MinutemenPhoto?

To help preserve the memories of each game, I do my best to shoot photos of all players, managers, coaches and cheer, and upload them for you. Minutemen Photo is not directly affiliated with Maranatha; I am simply a parent of one of the students who provides photos for the School.

Photo Preview of the 2015 Season

Maranatha–high-school–football-pre-seasonOn Friday night, Maranatha Football debuted at home against Wilson High School in a preseason scrimmage.

Coach Drake Buchanan said that he was “pleasantly surprised at today’s performance. JV played against Wilson’s Varsity, yet still were able to pull ahead.”

Varsity also pushed through to give their opponents a run for their money. MHS Coaches are excited and optimistic that the Maranatha Machine is shaping up for yet another banner season. Go Minutemen!
