This Is Our House

Hello again, after speaking with some of the other Lovett players about how Lovett's program has been so successful in the past years and hopefully this year as well, I realized that all the answers are the same. The consensus is that in each game that Lovett competes in, we are never the bigger team, but we pride ourselves on the amount of effort and discipline we able to perform with. As head coach Mike Muschamp says daily, “It takes zero talent to give effort,” and Lovett's “Band of Brothers”, has made a commitment to strive to exemplify the saying. This week Lovett is probably going to be the smaller team, but might be able to have success if the team is disciplined and shows a greater amount of effort than the opponent. Also, Lovett is fortunate to be playing St. Pius the week after Marist, mainly because both of the teams' offensives are similar, enabling the Lovett defense to perfect their defensive methods that they began practicing early last week. The defense is led by senior linebacker John Coletti and junior cornerback Grant Haley, and have each been able to make announcements to the High School about how much of an impact our fans have at a game. Their inspiration was then supported by a dance performed by the Lovett cheerleaders in an assembly. The cheerleaders were even able to create an enormous poster saying, “This is OUR House” which is now hung on top of the school's parking deck for the entire campus to see. Each day it seems as though the intensity picks up among the players, which translates into an increased intensity throughout the student body.
