Feb 8 2017 Youth Football

Congratulations and Thank You to all the volunteer coaches across NYC and America for teaching and mentoring the youth of America each and everyday.Youth sports build self esteem, respect for others, teamwork, responsibility and the rewards of hard work. December 13, 1998 "The Oscar Bowl " I did want to share this story to explain the blessings of working with young teenagers and how much they can teach us.This championship was another epic battle between the Queens Falcons and the Brooklyn Skyhawks in the Bantam Division ages 13-14. The Falcons prevailed 16-14, with a score and 2 point conversion with 1 minute remaining to win the NYC Youth Football Title.The Real Championship was won in the locker room pregame. Our pound for pound best player #51 Oscar Collins weighed out and could not play in the title game per league rules.The day before the game, I told the guys that I was going to ask them who they were going to dedicate their game too. So we're in the locker room pregame and I started... Coach Greg is dedicating his game to Howie Stark, a good friend and fellow Buffalo State College alumni. Howie had just passed suddenly and unexpectedly.I started calling the roll and all the expected dedications came in....mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother, sister, etc., Then I called on Anthony Nunez, #39, the smallest guy on the team and after a long pause..........Coach, I know I'm not gonna play today, but if I did I would dedicate my game to Oscar because he can't play ... ........Pin Drop Time. Coach Knute Rockne called it unselfish sacrifice. The smallest guy on the team had the biggest heart and Anthony hit the nail right on the head.After composing myself, I resumed the roll call, every player said their dedication plus the words "and for Oscar". We didn't know it then, but we had already won the championship. I have the game on tape, I just wish that I had the pregame locker room dedication on tape.Coach Ken, Oscar, Rayon, Paul, what do you guys remember about "The Oscar Bowl"Neil O'Donnell, Ken C Webster, Garvin Dublin.
