I am in need of protein bars and granola bars.  We have enough fruit snacks and trail mix for right now.  I would prefer either the Costco protein bars or the Pure Protein bars.  The nature valley granola bars as well.  Any help is needed.  Also, anyone wanted to donate a few dollars would be appreciated too.  These snacks are used for pre-game for all the teams.  I have been buying the crustables and bananas for halftime.  So, money would help with that.  Fruit can be donated too.  The players really appreciate the snacks and I feel they are really helping both teams.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

The football team needs to put together a basket for the EHS booster club fundraiser.  It will be used as a silent auction item to help raise money.  Our theme will be Tailgate.  I would love either some donations or if you are willing too, donate $5 or so to help offset the cost.  I need to start buying the items as it is due by next Friday September 28.  Let me know by email if you are interested in donating items.  Players can bring cash to me anytime.  Any help would be very appreciated.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler

Tomorrow we have practice from 4pm to 6:30pm.  Then we have our blitz card sale event from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.  Any parents who could help drive players around the community to sell, would be helpful.  Remind players to bring both tennis shoes as well as cleats.  We are hoping to be on the field, but things could change.

Also, the JV game vs Siuslaw was cancelled, but we found a replacement with Dallas.  The game will still be at home at 5:30pm on Thursday August 30. We will need concession help for that game.  If you are available, let me know.  The JV game vs North Valley also has changed.  It was supposed to be home, but there was a mix up with the Athletic Directors.  We will do a double header in North Valley on Friday Sept. 7.  JV at 4pm and Varsity at 7pm.  They may change to home if the smoke is still really bad down there and good here.  I will let people know if that changes.

We will be having our annual team camping trip from Friday August 10th to Sunday August 12th at Sutton Lake Campground (Florence, OR).  Our team has reserved all of loop D.  Our mission is to get as many players going to this camping trip to work on connecting as a team.  We are asking for $10 per player attending to help offset the cost for the camping site and food.  Each player would be provided with meals (Friday Dinner, Saturday Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner, Sunday Breakfast).  $10 is a great deal for all those meals.  We would love to also except any food donations (bags of chips, fruits, tortillas, bottled water, peanut butter, jelly, etc.)  If you are interested in donating food, please talk with either Danyel Parker or Cortnie Peeler.  We will also except cash donations to help with purchasing of food.  If parents/families would like to join us camping, their cost would be $40 (these would be non-hookups).  This pays for their camping spot for the weekend.  We could use help with preparing meals and chaperones.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

On July 30 – August 2,  the Elmira Falcon Football Team and coaches will be hosting their Future Falcon Football Camp.  Camp registration is July 30 at 5:30pm.  Camp will be from 6pm – 8pm on the practice field.  This is for incoming 2nd – 8th graders.  The cost is $40 and checks must be made to EHS.  Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt at the end. We will learn the basics of offensive positions, defensive positions, and tackling techniques. We also will play some fun games at the end of each day.  The Flyer is below.

FUTURE FALCON FOOTBALL CAMP FLYER – 2018

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 


I am cancelling the Central Linn 7-on-7 this weekend. With camp just getting over and basketball camp this weekend, we feel the players need the break. See everyone on Monday. Reminder it is from 6:00 to 7:30.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Camp is this Friday through Monday.  I have reserved a school bus to take players there and bring them home on Monday.  Players are not required to ride the bus.  If they do ride the bus, it will be $10.  Players will need to load the bus at 8:15am and leave by 8:30am on Friday.  We will load in the front of the school.  Then on Monday, we will leave around 11:30am to come home.

Things players will need to bring for camp:

All bedding (only mattress provided)

Extra clothing to wear when not playing

Stuff for showering and hygiene (i.e., tooth brush, shampoo, etc.)

Swimsuit and towels

Spending money

All football equipment gear and cleats

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

We will be handing out gear this Thursday during and after practice for camp.  All players can get gear now.  We will continue on Monday for those who do not make it.

Also, reminder that money and waivers are due this Friday for Team Camp.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

I need all Team Camp Money and Waiver turned in by Friday June 15th.  Please turn it in to Mrs. Boytz the bookkeeper at EHS.  Checks need to be written to EHS Football.  8th graders can turn them in to me.  I need to have the payment ready for camp the next week.  I sent home with each player their amount they owe.  If you did not get anything and need to know, email me at jpeeler@fernridge.k12.or.us.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

With some players at the fundraiser and some not able to make it, we are extending the fundraiser until Monday night.  We will close it on Tuesday.  That means, you can continue to get donations throughout the long weekend.  I was talking to the fundraising company last night.  Since they set this all up and help run it, they get a cut of the money.  That means, I would highly encourage players trying to get as much as they can to cover camp.  Any extra goes back to the team.  Next week, I will have a spreadsheet of how much each player raised.  If you were not at the fundraiser, you need to see Mr. Guldager (Mr. Peeler at the Middle School) tomorrow to get the paper with directions.  You can still get as much funding as possible.  If you are not going to camp, all that you raise goes to the team to help with equipment and gear cost.  This fundraiser is one of the easiest we have done.  Some players raised over $200 in just 45 minutes yesterday.  Send the texts to as many people you know.  It really adds up fast.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Reminder we have our team fundraiser tomorrow from 3:45 to 4:45.  We need all players there.  This will help with team camp cost as well as help with equipment needs during the season.  If you did not turn in your paperwork, you must bring it tomorrow to the fundraiser.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Just a reminder about the paperwork being due tomorrow.  High School give it to either Guldager or Monegan.  Middle School give it to me.  Also, the fundraiser will take place from 3:45 to 4:45 on Monday May 21.  It is really important that all players be there to participate.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

There is a team fundraiser meeting tomorrow at 3:45pm in Mr. Shannon’s room (rm 30).  This is for players only.  All players need to be there!

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

We are cancelling the Open Field on this Sunday.  It is Mothers Day and we all need to spend time with them.

Thanks,

I am attaching a flyer from LinePro.  They are putting on two clinics in Springfield in May.  These are ex-college and ex-NFL lineman running this camp.  Great opportunity to learn a lot of technique.  I would love to hear a lot of lineman are going.

There will be a player/parent meeting on Tuesday April 24, 2018 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in the theater at EHS.  All players need to be there to be fitted for a helmet as we lease all helmets.  We will also discuss a fundraiser for team camp.  Please try your best to get to this meeting as it is difficult to make another time to get fitted for helmets.  Also, don’t forget to fill out BOTH the player information and team camp Forms!

Bus will load in the front of the EHS at 8:15am and depart at 8:30am for South Western Oregon Community College in Coos Bay, OR on Thursday July 6th.  I would like to check in by 11am for Camp (so, players going on their own, be there by 11am).  The bus will then load at 5pm  and depart at 5:15pm for Elmira High School on Saturday July 8th.  We should arrive between 7pm and 7:30pm on Saturday night.  This is a full contact camp, so all players need to bring all their football gear.  We will be staying at SWOCC for the camp.  We sleep in the dorms and will eat in the cafeteria.  They will provide us with three meals a day.

Things to bring to camp:

Sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, towel  and some clothes for after practice.  I would also bring some extra money for snacks.  Again, all football gear too.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler

Since we are doing our fundraiser, I need to change practice on Friday from 6pm to 5pm.  We will go 5pm to 6:30pm.  We will have a fundraiser blitz on Friday after practice from 6:30 to 8:30.  This event is where the kids go out into the community and try to sell as many cards as possible.  The players are on teams.  There will be a reward for the team that sells the most cards during the Blitz.

Thank you for being Flexible,

Coach Peeler


 

I would like to do gear check-out this week.  Here is the plan:

Today (Tuesday) – Varsity Gear Check-out – 4:45pm to 5:45pm

Tomorrow (Wednesday) – Junior Varsity Gear Check-out – 4:45pm to 5:45pm

Thursday – Baseball Player Gear Check-out – 4:45pm to 5:45pm

Reminder we have practice everyday this week with Thursday and Friday required gear days for team camp.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

If you have not paid for camp or completed the waiver for camp, it needs to be done as soon as possible.  The bookkeeper only can write me a check for camp until next Tuesday, June 27th.  I  will bring extra waivers.  I need them before camp.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Reminder that all practices are now from 6pm to 7:30pm starting tomorrow.  Next week we will go everyday to get ready for team camp.  Thursday and Friday next week are required equipment days for camp.  I hope to see everyone at practices.  We can only be as good as we want to be.  Off-season is where champions are made.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Tomorrow we will be kicking off a fundraiser where the kids will sell cards with coupons to local and larger companies in the area.  We will finish practice with information.  All kids will be coming home with 10 cards.  The goal is for each player to sell 10 cards.  There will be prices for selling.  This could be a good fundraiser for our program to help offset equipment costs, and other needs as we go.  I would really like to have a good turn-out tomorrow at practice from 6pm to 7:30pm.  This fundraiser will go until Friday June 30.  We will do a blitz day where the players will go out trying to sell to locals or people from 6pm to 8pm.  Again, the more players participating, the better results we can have.  I want to knock this fundraiser out of the park.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Reminder that today is our first spring practice.  We will be doing weight room and field activities.  Practice is from 3:40 to 5:00.  Meet on the practice field at 3:40.  Our next practice will be Thursday from 3:40 to 5:00.

Thanks,

Thanks,

Players,

Starting later this week, you now can workout at the High School.  Coaches will have a workout for you to follow.  There are two options for players.

  1. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6:45am to 8:00am (No 8th graders yet please.  Need to work on busing)
    • This will start on Wednesday
  2. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6:00pm to 7:30pm (8th graders welcome).
    • This will start on Thursday

Please take advantage of these times and get into the weight room.  The season can only be as good as players want to work.  Lifting is important not only for performance, but for preventing injuries. I hope all players take advantage of this opportunity.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

This summer our football team will be going the Marshfield for a Football Team Camp.  This camp is cheaper and closer than Camp Rilea.  This camp is from July 6 – 8.  It will still be a contact (gear) camp with scrimmages and other competitions.

Thanks,

Well, if you don’t know by now, we missed the play-offs by one spot overall.  It has been an up and down year for sure.  I am so proud to have had the opportunity to coach these players.  We will be practicing tomorrow from 3:40 to 4:40.  We will be watching game film and discussing final items for the year.  As of right now, we have not found a team to play this next week.  I also want to talk to players to see if they are in or out.  I will also announce all-league honors as well.  Please make sure all players are there.

 

Thanks,

Coach Peeler

Second, we need a varsity parent to pick up the subway order at 1pm on this friday for the players road trip. If you can, please email me at jpeeler@fernridge.k12.or.us.

Spring Practices for next will be Monday through Thursday 6:00pm – 7:30pm on practice field.  Friday, practice will be 10:00am to 12:00pm.  This is to accommodate some baseball games.  Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are our scheduled Mandatory practices with gear to be able to participate in full contact at Camp Rilea.  If you miss one, Monday of camp will cover it.  If you miss more, you will have to sit out of scrimmages at camp until you have the three gear days covered.

Also, construction begins on the High School this weekend.  Players, Parents, and Coaches all need to go to the back of the school (staff parking lot) to park or pick-up players.  We need to walk behind the school by the shot put area to get to the practice field.  The front of the school will be closed.

There are still around 20 players saying they are going to Camp Rilea who have not paid for Camp.  Please get that done ASAP.  I need to have the check ready this next week.  I am planning a meeting for parents of players going to camp.  The meeting will be Wednesday at 7pm in the cafeteria.  This will be to discuss the bus and make sure everyone has rides.  Also, Danyel Parker is going to be contacting parents for donations for two different meals at Camp.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Coach Brands will be available to work with all Quarterbacks and Receivers tomorrow from 3:45 to 5:00 on the practice field. This will be a time start working on our throwing and catching mechanics.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Camp Rilea is right around the corner.  There are a lot of items that need to be done to be ready.

  1. I have 37 out of 60 players paid for camp that are saying they are going.
  2. I have 34 out of 60 players who have filled out the Camp Rilea Transportation Form under Player Info telling me how they are getting to camp.
  3. I must order T-Shirts for the Camp by June 15th.  I know some players are changing whether to go or not.  I need to know as soon as possible.  If you are changing what you were doing, please e-mail me at jpeeler@fernridge.k12.or.us to let me know.
  4. I also need to give them as close as possible the number of beds needed for camp.

I really would appreciate if we can start to finalize these items as quickly as possible as some are close to the deadlines.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Coach Brands will be available to work with all Quarterbacks and Receivers tomorrow from 3:40 to 5:00 on the practice field.  This will be a time start working on our throwing and catching mechanics.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Reminder that we have our first Spring Practice tomorrow from 3:40 to 5:00 at the high school practice field.  There are no locker rooms for football, so I am asking all players to bring their stuff to the practice field.  After practice, you will have to shower at home.  This is due to the bond construction currently going on at the high school.  We will be doing both weight room and field work, so bring tennis shoes and cleats for practice.  We will meet first on the practice field.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

This is a reminder that I need all players going to Camp Rilea to fill out the Camp Rilea Transportation Form under Player Info tab.  I have 17 out of 60 players who have completed it.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Coach Brands would like to invite all Quarterbacks and Receivers to an open field type event on Monday May 23, 2016 from 6:30 – 7:30 on the practice field.  Those players can stay after from 7:30 – 8:15 for weights.  This will be a time start working on our throwing and catching mechanics.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

I would like to have the $150 turn in by Friday June 3rd if at all possible. Also, have the waiver turned in as well. The money and form needs to be turned into the bookkeeper. I still have around 10 kids who have not filled out the player information form. Please remind players to do so. I also need parents to fill out the Camp Rilea Transportation form under player info if they are going to camp. I am trying to decide whether to get a bus for the trip to and from camp. The bus is expensive, but would really help out parents trying to get their child to camp. I would need to charge $15 to ride the bus. I encourage all players and parents to fill out the forms. I need to make some decisions soon.

Thanks
Coach Peeler


 

I would like to have all players who plan on going to Camp Rilea this year fill out my Camp Rilea Transportation Form (Under Player Info Tab). I would like all players planning on going to Camp Rilea to turn in their waiver and money by Friday June 3rd.  I need to make arrangements.  Also, I have been considering a school bus for camp to transport players to and from camp.  I know camp this year is a Monday through Friday.  It is asking a lot of parents to take two days off of work and pay for gas to and from twice.  The bus is a little expensive, but I think it is a better way for parents to get their players to camp this year.

 

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Reminder!!!  Weight Training starts tomorrow (Monday May 2) from 6:30pm – 7:30pm in the weight room at the high school.  I hope to see a big turnout.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

Any player who missed the first helmet fitting needs to attend this fitting.  We will meet in the EHS PE Locker Room from 6:30pm to 7:00pm.  I need to finalize the numbers to order helmets by next week.  Please attend if you have not been fitted for a helmet.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

When you click on the new Player Info tab there is a link to a google form that I need all players to fill out ASAP!  This will help me know my numbers for Camp Rilea and how many helmets to lease.  I want to take all grades to camp.

Also, I now have the google calendar uploaded in the Calendar tab with a menu to a PDF printable calendar link.

Thanks,

Coach Peeler


 

I am going to postpone the football weight training until Monday May 2.  We will do Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday that week from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.  I apologize, but I need to get Camp Rilea and Helmet situations done before getting the weight training started.

Thanks for you flexibility,

Coach Peeler
