Coaches, players, parents and fans associated with the FishHawk Youth Football and Cheer Association (FYFCA) have every reason to feel good about the program, which began with the organization’s Mitey-Mite football team kicking off the season on a solid footing.
“I can’t be more proud of what this team has done so far,” said second-year Mitey-Mite’s head coach, Charles Reed. “Everyone, including the coaching staff and our volunteer parents are all playing their role, which clearly plays out well on the field.”
With a full roster of 35 players and a three-game winning streak (at time of writing), Mitey-Mites have been proving themselves to be a well-balanced team that sports all the goods necessary for success.
“We have a number of very talented players that possess speed, strength, as well as the desire to give it their best,” Reed said, but added that while all the important elements are present, playing together as a team is what truly sets the group apart from the rest of the league.
Mike Dempsey, one of eight assistant coaches that keep the Mitey-Mites on track, shared Reed’s sentiments when he emphasized the level of talent along with a number of other important traits.
“They are all bright young men, who exhibit discipline, respect, and enjoy each practice and game without complaining,” Dempsey said. The best part of is that they are all having fun.”
While the Mitey-Mites are expected to shut out the competition this year, they are just one of six teams. Cheer squads, poised once again to be national contenders this year, all wear the Wolfpack logo, as well as follow the same leadership guidelines outlined by FYFCA, a community-oriented organization that seeks to fulfill its role to develop leaders in its young athletes through academics, athletics and discipline; and with a sense of pride in self, family and community.
