Benefit Car Wash – Saturday

The Kofa Kings Football program, in conjunction with its Booster Club, will be holding a Car Wash on Saturday, May 15 to benefit the family of junior football player Lorenzo Villa.

On Tuesday, May 11, the Villa family lost their home in a fire, at the same time losing most of their personal belongings.

The Car Wash will be held at Fisher Hyundai in Yuma located at 1125 E. 32nd St. and will take place from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. with all proceeds going directly to the Villa Family. Student-athletes in the program will be selling car wash tickets around school today for $5. Also, the Booster Club will be selling hot dogs and sodas during the car wash.

All of that information can be found on a flyer that was emailed to parents of student-athletes in the program.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday morning. Thanks for your support of Kofa Football.

Weight Room Links

First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there. Guys, make sure you do something everyday to make your mother feel special.

Like we talked about on Friday after practice, some links are going to be posted that show proper technique for some things we are going to be doing in the weight room as we move forward this spring and into the summer.

All of this stuff comes from the National Strength and Conditioning Association website.

The first link is the main page which has instructions and demonstrations for a number of exercises. Most of these exercises we are going to perform at some point.

This link shows the proper technique for the Clean.

The third link shows the proper technique for the Power Snatch.

Study these sites and study these videos so you know the proper technique on these lifts as we work to improve our strength and become a bigger, faster, stronger football program.

Great example of Leadership

At Stanford last fall, redshirt freshman Andrew Luck beat out a fifth-year senior for the starting job at quarterback. (Photo courtesy of Athlon Sports)

The belief inside Kofa Football is that an awful lot can be learned from examples set by college football programs around the United States.

ESPN’s Ivan Maisel was recently at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA (we too will be there in less than two months!) to interview redshirt sophomore quarterback Andrew Luck. The article talks about Luck’s road to Stanford and what he has done since arriving on campus. It is a great look at how this 20-year-old is not just a great football player, but he is also a great leader.

Stanford Head Coach Jim Harbaugh is impressed everyday by Luck. About halfway through the¬†article Harbaugh shares a story from a couple of years ago when Luck was on campus in the summer at the Cardinal’s High School Summer Camp.

“Obviously, he was a guy we were recruiting,” Harbaugh said. “I kept calling him up and saying, ‘Andrew, you start us off on this drill.’ After the third time or so, he said, ‘Coach, we have a rotation to where everyone gets a turn. We’ll go by the rotation.”

“That was shocking,” Harbaugh said. “That was really impressive that he had that sense of those around him. It’s a leadership quality. He’s got that natural humility. Everybody’s got their antennae up. They’re watching you. The one thing you’re trying to figure out is what’s in another man’s heart? Is he about himself? Or is he about the team? He builds everybody else up. He makes everybody around him huge.

“The opposite of that,” Harbaugh said, “is the guy who tears everybody else down and builds himself up.”

This is a great statement from the coach about leadership.

This is what we are looking for this spring. That is why we are giving out a Leadership Award to a student-athlete from each class. It is that important to football programs to have strong leadership.

Change to the schedule

If you were at last night’s workout you already know, but tonight’s workout has been cancelled.

Instead, go to the Varsity Baseball game against San Luis. First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m.,  with plenty of pregame festivities set to start at 6:30 p.m.

The Kofa Baseball Program is retiring Mr. Laguna’s number and it is Senior Night.

The Kings control their own state tournament destiny. If they beat San Luis tonight and sweep Lake Havasu in tomorrow’s doubleheader, they will be in the state tournament. First pitch is at 7 p.m. Show your Kings Pride and get out to support your fellow athletes.
