To the young men on the Grand County High School football team of 2013:

I would like to thank you for the great honor of being presented with the signed football and fan recognition. I have been a loyal Red Devil fan for nearly 50 years now and I have seen generations of young men play high school football, including your coach and his son.

I always sat in the top, north corner of the bleachers and cheered the team on. Win or lose, during rain, snow, wind or sun shine, I was there.

This year is the first year I have not been able to attend any games, but I am still with you every game thanks to KCYN and the radio. It was a great honor to listen to the first playoff game last week. Even though it got tough, I was never worried and knew you would come out victorious, because that’s who you young men are, and as a team you are unstoppable. I know this weekend will be the same.

Always remember, both now and the rest of your lives too, always try your hardest, never give up and be proud of who you are and your accomplishments. Learn from your mistakes, never give in to them. If you do that, you will always be a winner, no matter what life brings your way.

As always, I am your loyal fan.

Now, get out there and kick some bottom! Go Big Red!

—F. Verell Wyatt Jr.
