Thank you to all students, parents, administrators, trainers, faculty, staff and supporters that helped make this season special. Thank you to the dedicated coaching staff who share their time and enthusiasm for teaching football and coaching young men. Congratulations to the student-athletes who made the fall 2017 an outstanding football season. The standard of excellence for West Vancouver Secondary School Highlander Football is at a new height.
We are especially proud of the academic achievements of the student-athletes this fall. In addition to our many fine students, award winners and Pacific Conference All-Star honorees, we must recognize all the student-athletes that put in the extra effort to academically better themselves. First and foremost, each West Vancouver Secondary School student-athlete is a student. There is no football at West vancouver Secondary without academic commitment.
While the Varsity and Junior Varsity teams in the program had their own win-loss records and they enjoyed their share of big victories and emotional defeats, the games of this past fall will eventually fade into fragmented memories. In the end, the measures of success are not the statistics or wins, rather, they are the friendships, lessons and maturing that are the result of effort, selfless commitment to the team and dedication to personal betterment. The student-athletes of the 2017 West Vancouver Secondary School Highlander Football Program were truly successful. We as parents, players, coaches and supporters are fortunate to have been a part of it.
To all the Grade 12 players, we are honoured that you played for us in your last year as a West Van Highlander. Take these memories, friendships and experiences as you go forward in life. You will forever be a Highlander. As we have said to the Grade 12's in the past "Life is to be lived". Be successful in whatever makes you happy and know that your Highlander family always has your back.
As we look back, we can’t help but to also look forward to Spring 2018. We am excited to see how the student-athletes of spring season embrace the legacy of out 2017 fall season.
