Support Scottsdale Preparatory Academy Spartans Football Team!

We're going up to Mogollon this Friday. We're going to pray for a good performance and a victory for the SPA Spartans Football Team.

We just love the young men playing this game. They are just fabulous to be around with... their enthusiasm rubs on to everyone. I think the coaches have done a great job in their development not just physically but mentally as well.

Just beautiful watching everyone including parents and friends getting together and cheering them on at every game.

This weekend is no exception, they will be travelling 2-3hrs to Heber, Arizona to take on the Mogollon High School Mustangs. I'm told this will be a tough game as Mogollon traditionally has been a good football team.

The Spartans is only playing in their 2nd year, never had a football program before last year, and they don't even have a field to practice on. Every week they take whatever is available and in the Arizona heat, they just play on, maintain their academic grades and practice hard.

This is no ordinary team!  Watch this support video....

Our Trip to Northern Arizona

Our recent road trip to northern Arizona. The trip also took us into Kanab, Utah. Our trip this time is to support my sons high school Spartans football team playing against the Fredonia Lynx.

The scenery was just breathtaking, even the school (Fredonia High) had the mountains right in their backyard.

 Enjoy this slideshow....

Yay! Another Victory and our road trip.

Another big win for the team. This time against the Fredonia Lynx, score was 46-6. It was a long drive up north all the way to the Utah border. In fact our hotel was across the border in Kanab, Utah. The game was in Fredonia, a small town with a population of about 1800, just 15mins from Kanab.

On our way back to Scottsdale, we took highway 89A, it's a scenic route and where the Grand Canyon North Rim is. Some wonderful scenery... here are some pictures.

SPA Spartans Football

The SPA Spartans 1st game of the season... they won resoundingly 84-40. My son's position is Outside Linebacker and he's been waiting anxiously for this. We're going to Fredonia, Arizona this weekend for another game. It's right at the Utah border, a long 6 hr drive.
