Instead of complaining about this event or that event, or questioning what is going on, why don't you go to a booster meeting and be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. Everyone knows when they are: the first Monday of the month at 6:30. So show up, offer constructive criticism and help move the program forward rather than try and tear it down.
Going to a boosters meeting is not going to solve anything. They wont answer questions about the missing money. They say they cant, well I want to know whats being done about this missing money. This should not be taking this long, it didnt when it happen with the Cheerleaders.

Well the president was Lori Nicely, so is this who your talking about????
I would say Im shocked but when you live like you have a money tree in the back yard, the money has to be coming from somewhere. And eventually you get caught.
I heard there was also something going on with her Day Care.

Then I have to ask the question is it being covered up because her sister in law is on the school board, and her brother in law is a constable.

Maybe there needs to be a full investigation into the school board also.
Fascinating.

Thats just it Bill, nobody will talk about it at the school or the boosters. They say that cant, but damit I know how much money I have spent on the meat tickets, the cash bashes, and going to the games and supporting the boys who the money was stolen from....

All the athletes do go out for volleyball and other sports when they should be playing football. They say they dont want to but they are just afraid to hit and tackle and actually work hard. There are athletes but there no good parents just let them be lazy or get drunk and not have to do anything. The kids that do go to the workouts and try so hard i feel bad for. Its not looking good for this year either. Got every single skill position back including wannamaker, the hardworking horse who they rely on the most and also matusak who is a good wr db and the best highschool kicker ive seen in decades. But they have a bad line. They list all conference wisneski who has been solid since day 1. Hopefully if they stay healthy...which good chance wont happen, they can win 4 or 5 games. Which would be an improvement. So lets talk about the football team, not about the schoolboard or boosters. Post somewhere else about that. Lets goo trojans

It has always been the case, at least at Derry, that good athletes and potentially very good football players choose not to play football for whatever reason. I played 78-80 and I can think of at least 10 kids that not only should have played, but would have contributed, even started.

I think some of them (not all) were lazy, some didn't like or understand the football culture, some were probably encouraged not to play by parents, some were turned off by the time commitment required, etc.

Over the years I have talked to more than a few guys that regret not playing football. You only have a short window of time to play high school football. We didn't have great teams but they were very memorable times.

Instead of continiuing to complain why don't you check out the article titled "Derry Football Boosters Missing Money" The Derry Football Boosters President made a statement.

Besides all the negatives about the missing money, How is the offseason/summer workouts going for the team and the kids?

Talked to a junior who is actively involved in the workouts. He said that the team "won't be any good this year." Whatever that may have meant. I certainly hope they improve -- they do seem to have at least a core grp that works fairly hard. I do know that the Strength Coach isn't teaching proper form, but hey...

They had every opportunity to get correct strength training and conditioning, but don't so it is what it is.

Kids who choose not to play football are not all lazy, lets see who has more endurance any kid on the cross country or soccer team or any football player, there probably isnt a football player that could run the course without walking, and if you are interested in watching a Derry team win an event the wrestling program and volleyball team are probably the only squads with winning records anyway.
Tougher schedule

Well David it is, I see a bunch of posts about how these other atheletes should be playing football, maybe they shouldnt, maybe there not concerned about being a "high school hero" maybe they want to play something with a winning record witch at Derry wont be Football or Basketball!

Congrats to them for making all state however making all state in volleyball is not on par with making all state at football or basketball or wrestling or track because not nearly as many schools in PA have a volleyball program. Not taking away from the kids efforts, just stating the facts, for instance there are 17 schools in this county, how many have volleyball?
