Season Sunset


Season Sunset, originally uploaded by thejesse.

Last night the Jerome Tiger varsity football team culminated their season in the Idaho state 4A championship game. In the end the Tigers fell to the Hillcrest Knights 55-35. The game was an interesting match-up featuring two polar opposite offenses. Jerome with a wide open spread passing game and Hillcrest with a double wing running game.

The Knights deserve a lot of credit for turning around a team that went 0-8 in 2007 to go 11-1 and win a state championship in 2008. Kudos to the new coach there and congratulations to the team on an excellent season and a well earned championship.

To the Jerome Tigers I say congratulations. You are a great bunch of kids with the heart of champions. Never stop striving to be number one. You brought a tremendous amount of excitement and hope to our community this season. Above all else thank you for conducting yourselves as gentlemen and role models on and off the field. You are a team any community would be proud to call their own.

It was such a joy to watch our football team this season. I hope they will soon get over the dissapointment of the championship loss and celebrate all they have accomplished this season. They have a lot to be proud of.

Go J-town.
