Proud of Rams

I wish to express a sincere thank you to everyone who put forth such a wonderful effort this year for the Highlands Golden Rams football team.

The team put in long hours all season and I hope they appreciate all of the good resulting from those efforts.

It is sad to eventually lose, but in losing, our boys have learned the most important lesson in life: Not everything is going to be the way you had hoped. Our team was outsized, but did not let that alter their determination — for that I am proud.

These players encouraged each other and truly believed that they were the best they could be. You cannot ask for more from one another. The friendships and special moments shared will linger for years and become a time they cherish and talk about for many years.

The team was supported in its efforts by fellow students, parents, coaches, teachers and Highlands fans. I thank all of them for the time they took from their daily lives to enjoy the football season.

With love and support, we helped Highlands achieve great success.

We are so very proud of each and every one of you.

Roberta Smith


TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
