Thanks For The Lessons



As a former Payson Raider, I would like to commend the Payson Raiders coaching staff for the great letter they wrote to the editor. I have to agree that when your coach shows respect for the athletes, you want to give them more than a 150 percent.

When playing for the Payson Youth Football, I learned the game, I gained respect for the game, and I had fun playing the game. My coaches I have had in the last seven years of football have prepared me for the upcoming years as a Longhorn.

I want to personally thank Mark Henning, Dick Nielsen and Tige Godac for the great time I had in mighty mite and minor division football. As for Raider football, Billy Hardt can take a group of kids with very little, or no, knowledge of football and make them CAYFA champions. This is all due to how he treats his kids. I give Coach Hardt, Coach Gonzalez and Coach Schrank my thanks for all their hard work. It was my pleasure playing for you.

Jerod Schrank, Payson
