RADFORD HIGH SCHOOL… BOBCATS TONIGHT


#51
D’Vante
(da beast)
Yep that’s the Godson
tonight taking the field for the last regular season night of
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
as a Senior of High School
Radford High School
BOBCATS
ohhh lawd
where has the time gone?
When did I blink?
As I sit here kicking my feet
and
demanding a “re-do”
where did that cute little guy go with the sweet smelling feet
who now wears a “not so sweet smellin size 13”
and
is oh so tall and big?
><
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS BABY!
tonight
in
Radford VA
many a tear will fall I do believe
as
football players/cheerleaders
and those who love them and have watched them grow
watched and listened as they have developed
thoughts of their own, values, morals, and opinions
now take that field as seniors on the last night
of
FRIDAY night football
in a small community
and
as they all stand to face the
United States Flag
I can pray that all will join
and sing the National Anthem
as the excitement mounts
the tears are replaced by
pure energy
and
the hollering begins
for
those BOBCATS
TO PROWL
all over that field!
They will be walking/running/pumped up!
#51 da beast
and
the boiis
those seniors
those friends of D’Vante
that
Deshon Devore #11, Justan, Hunter,
 and the rest
(did i mention “intense”)
“Let’s gooo Bobcats”
and
those cheerleaders will be (freezing) and doing their “thang”
and
the crowds will be filled with spirit
for the teams that will gather
each wanting this win some kinda bad!
AND
I will be in my
Bobcat shirt
waiting for my phone to start blowing up with texts from cuzzie as she texts in the cold the latest updates and scores!
BLACK N GOLD
WILL TAKE THE FIELD WITH DETERMINATION, WITH PURPOSE AND PASSION!
WITH
FOCUS
and
I will just be insane from a distance
imagining it all
and
D’Vante will hear me in his heart
and
he will know that our connection knows no distance!
Yep
me n Granny
we’ll be right there with ya!
(right side)
><
AND
I can’t help but wonder
how it will feel as
cuzzie and little kamryn walk on the field
as they represent him on his
Senior Night,
joined with all the others
representing the Seniors tonight!
COB will be sitting with her crew on the 50 yard line
and
yes
the tears will fall
oh goodness she will be a mess to be certain!
AND
then those Bobcats will have their
‘attitude on’
as they
PROWL
onto that field
with pride and desire
and
the tears will be replaced by
excitement and adrenalin and the hollering will begin!!!
IT’S FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS BABY!!!
Tonight Robin Reed of WDBJ-7 the meterologist will even be there, and I’m betting Robin will report on the heat generated by all the fans that hang on that 50 yard line where
cuzzie Ang and COB and pals are known to shake black n gold containers that make all sorts of racket and hoop and holler
and
get tips from one of the Dads at ways to distract the opponents by yelling
D E F E N S E
to the tops of their lungs!!!
yep bettin ole Robin Reed is in for a real treat
by more than the razzle of the black n gold
of those BOBCATS as they prowl
and ohhh heaven help us if
COB dresses up!!!
(me n Granny well … we’ll be watchin that too)
><
But i also bet it is a bit chilly tonight
for those who are in the stands, as
D’Vante tells me he can’t really feel the cold too much!
Guess that adrenalin and those endorphins are rather remarkable aren’t they?
OHHH how I am already rooting for a big win!
I will be exhasuted by game time

oh I better get the cocktail ready now!!!
LOL
ohhhh my, it will begin and it will mark an ending as well!
Talk about a night of emotion in motion…
I can’t help but wonder how others may be thinking as they begin to witness this night
and as memories flood the senses
as those seniors mark such a milestone
and as we all will wonder
where did the time go?
Will they still want to join in those family outings/vacations?
Will they remember and look back with such remarkable memories as many of us?
Will they want them to continue as they now make their own way into their lives
and new beginnings?
We often reflect and think
of those times
and memories made
often wishing for a “re-do” a “do over”
or even if honest
a
“do better”
but
remembering not to cry because it ended
but
to smile that it happened at all
may proved beneficial.
Senior night has brought back some wonderful memories
and
wonderings along the day
and
remembering how we sang the song
“you’re goin to miss this”
along the way!
D’Vante and Kamryn were even singing it at the end of vacation and we all changed the words to fit our trip,
to fit OUR boys
along the way!
They would even call me months later and sing it to me
on my voice mail!!!
Oh yes
at times
how I miss IT!
BUT
now is about
SENIOR NIGHT
it’s about
BOBCAT FOOTBALL
and
Friday Night Lights!!!
and
what a night it’s going to be… the energy is in the air.
Cuzzie is getting ready to celebrate a birth day on the 6th,
so maybe this win will be for her!
After all,
D’Vante had texted me after the last 3 wins
and
my food poisoning event to let me know
“We won it for YOU”
GO GET IT BOBATS!
Tonight they are playing a team from a little mountain town called Giles…
Funny
Granny hailed from Giles
so
I’m thinking she will be right there for our boy
and
she will be sure to take care of him
and
although she was from Giles
I am thinking she will be
“for the Bobcats”
on this one!
Yep
(me n Granny, we’ll be watchin’)
><
Speaking of the
BOBCATS
I’m hoping to speak to the graduating class of
2011
and
here’s what I hope they take on that field;
The spirit of the Bobcat
The Bobcat represents patience… imagine that, patience among young people! Warriors of all ages, little and big, on a football field, kids just beginning to discover the wonderment of life, living and all that is and will be. The Bobcat although a rather solitary creature, (no wonder kids hole up in their rooms with music blaring!), is also quite a playful and powerful character, serving as a great reminder for all of us not to take things or ourselves too seriously at times.
This totem and this Radford Virginia team reminds us to be fully aware, to be present right here, right now; to be present, to be mindful knowing that in order to get what we want we must be willing to plan.
 To get what we really want we must adapt our thinking, expand our knowledge, and above all else we must be respectful of all people and all things.
To live the best life possible on the field and in our lives we must believe in the power of self, the power of love, the power of kindness and faith.
With that said:
GO BOBCATS; Play your hearts out, Do your best… focus, purpose, passion, humility and honor!
When the game is over, shake hands with your opponents, hug your brothers on the field.
Look to the stands and show your thanks to those who love and support you always! Raise your helmets, beat your chest, give a “thumbs up”… just take the time to show them some love, win/loss/tie. Remember who loves you baby!!!
Remember, YOU are the Bobcats!
The spirit of the Bobcat asks that you dig deep, Look deep within yourself, discover all that you want and need to become the best you; living with honor and dignity and truth.
I expect great things from all of you and from all of us each and every day that we are blessed to live in this great country of ours.

BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF YOUR DREAMS BOBCATS, AND NEVER, NEVER EVER
GIVE UP. GOOD LUCK IN YOUR GAME TONIGHT;
I JUST KNOW;
THERE ARE SOME GREAT THINGS IN AND AHEAD
FOR
 ALL OF YOU IN THE GAME OF LIFE,
after all….
 The Godmother is wearing the Bobcat shirt here in Florida!
(me n Granny… we’ll be watchin!!!)

  1. Granny will be on that field with her #51 young man. She was from Pembroke, Va. Giles County. His picture hung right in her living room with many more pictures. As she walked out of her living room to start to bed she would pause at his picture and take two fingers put them to her lips and then on his lips in the picture. She will be touching his heart tonight and he will be running over those Giles boys. She is never far away from the Godmother and her boys and family. You can feel her presence in lots of places and lots of time. Just be careful what you are doing cause she is the wise and wonderful one who will be with you forever. Blessings

  2. Ahh Gee Dot, that is too bad. I was sure praying those Bobcats would win their big game. Too bad some people can be so unfair as to do that and play their loud horn and not be stopped. Well, the Bobcats and families know that they did their best and their hearts can be glad knowing they played fair and good. I am sure Granny was watching over that game. Have a peaceful night friends. Sandy♥

  3. The moon is now a half moon and it has a big blue circle around it. I am sure it is crying for the wonderful Bobcats who lost the game 21-17. It was a tough game, the officials was working for Giles I am sure as they called false fouls on us at least 6 times and when they placed the ball they placed it in favor of the Giles team. The crowd was wild but nothing could be done. We are always told not to bring any loud noise makers to the game. Giles brought a train loud horn and played it most of the game. Very bad sportsmanship but nothing was done, they were warned not to play it but continued to do so. My heart hurts for all of the team and especially the seniors. We still go into the playoffs. Thats all folks for tonight, my heart is heavy. Blessings to all.

  5. You're gonna miss this. How true your words and the song. I am missing it already and want to use duct tape but it is too late. Those Bobcats will be off and running and the crowd will be going wild. We are always praying no one gets hurt and have to see that rescue squad down on the field. Tonight will end some wonderful years of High School and friends who will go their way and others that will move on, it will be a sad time. We know for most of the kids they will have a wonderful future of seeing their dreams come true and working at something they have always dreamed of doing. The families will be heart broken when they move on and will wonder did I do what was best and did I do enough. These boys are the best, honest and true to each other and their friendship will last forever. The weeping will be on with the family and friends. What I am trying to say is We are gonna miss this. The song says it all. Yes we will be on that 50yd. line screaming our hearts out and the wind will be blowing right into our skin. No amount of clothes can keep you warm when the wind is flowing around you and that wonderful FLAG is standing straight out. Go Bobcats we are with you all the way. God Bless the USA.

  6. Good luck to the Bobcats tonight. Go out and get yourselves a win!!

  7. Yes – God Get Em Radford Bobcats >>>>>> What a grand time tonight will be. Can't imagine the noise, the screaming, the music, the chearing them on to victory – Surely there will be many silent tears falling as Moms and Dads and family think about the fact that this game will be the end of one battle for the seniors and the beginning of another is just ahead of them. It is so hard to think about those boys that are loved and just what seemed like weeks ago they were little tykes and now they are on their way to victory of the final senior game. It is amazing how fast they grow up. D'Vante and friends – do well tonight and many are chearing you all on. Stay strong and moving. I am anxious to hear about it tomorrow. Dr. Sherry, thank you for your words and being here and this place we can come to and settle our frazzled brains for a few minutes a day. Wishing you a happy and peaceful day and all those who pass by here be well and enjoy the Blessings of another Friday and the start of a great weekend. God Bless – Sandy♥
