We went to our grandson's (#87) sixth grade football game. This team has some real tradition for me. When the Raiders began they were called the Hollandtown Raiders, coached by Bob Wurdinger. Back then the boys had make-shift uniforms;
I know that for a fact because my brother played 'Raider Ball'.
When my son started 'Raider Ball', he was in seventh grade and played for two years.
Oh, my gosh, last night, I witnessed the third generation of Raider's. I am getting old!!!
The uniforms have really spruced up since those beginning days; the boys start younger, and the name has changed to Kaukauna Raiders sporting the orange and black colors of the Kaukauna High school team.
Those sixth grade boys played their heart out. I enjoyed watching them develop their personal skills and learning to be a team member.
They'd get in the huddle to discuss the next play, then on to the field to "get 'er done!"
And "get 'er done" they did....
They won 22 to 0 over the Menasha team.
And that's the way it is......................
