With great anticipation along with a few nerves, the Minutemen are back on the field. Not only do we have a new and cooler grass turf, “‘Natha Nation” is also sporting a new group of players, eager to prove themselves to the coaches and other seasoned Minutemen.

Today was Picture Day for Maranatha Football. From 8:00 to 10:30am, the Minutemen Team, coaches and support, all met on the field to capture everyone’s pearly whites and game faces.

Boys Hold Heads High After Big Loss

Maranatha–high-school–football-linfield-9-25-2015They were fast, smart and big–and I mean really big!

Linfield Christian were an awesome group of young men to watch. Two of their players towered in the 6’4′ to 6’8″ range. Their kicker consistently launched precision 50-plus-yard field goals; quite frankly, it was said that “Linfield was a better team.”

Despite the devastating downpour of Linfield’s power, our own Minutemen still showed character and displayed an impressive amount of integrity throughout the battle on Friday night.

They all did an exceptional job defending their goal against the Bigs, but in the end lost 0-45.

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…!
