Thanks for a great season!

Another Fall season is in the books and though the festivities are not quite complete (more on that below) we’re already looking forward to a busy offseason and 2022. Before we completely turn the page, I thought it would be prudent to celebrate the season that was and acknowledge some of the amazing volunteers who made it all possible.

First - I want to extend sincere thanks to all of our coaches without whom no season would ever be possible. Coaching is a challenge in any season but this year brought the added difficulty of having to navigate a tragic loss within our larger Hill Country Family. I was inspired by the compassion and steadfast leadership of our coaches and all of our volunteers as they grappled with their own feelings while helping the young people, around whom our community is built, process the loss of a peer. This year, perhaps more than in recent years, taught us to cherish these moments with our kids and to more deeply appreciate those in our community.

On a lighter note, I’d like to give a big shoutout to our 8U Timberwolves Flag team who capped a 7-1 season with a 20-0 win and a CenTex Flag Championship! These kiddos played their hearts out all season, boasting one of the top offenses and the top scoring defense all season - never too early to introduce our opponents to the Black Rain!

After a tough 0-2 start to the season, our 5th Grade Varsity Timberwolves put the pieces together and finished the season on a 4-1 run, including a tightly contested loss in the first round of the playoffs. This team will return more than 20 players next season and we can’t wait to see them make a run for the Hill Country Championship as 6th graders!

Meanwhile our JV and 6th Grade Varsity teams book-ended their seasons with wins, featuring very strong showings against Glenn (27-0 and 38-0 respectively) in their end of season bowl games.
