Update for Today and Varsity Game Schedule

Hello Everyone,

Two updates with today's email.

First, we will not start our joint practice with Goffstown today until 330pm. We go 3:30-4:45pm first practice in uppers, then food in cafe and then we finish up 7-9pm in full pads all on the turf. The players know that we start stretch at 3:30pm so should be on field by 3:20pm. Obviously, no one would should ever look at the sun.

Second, our varsity schedule has changed. Trinity has dropped varsity football and we will not play them this year for varsity. Because of them dropping, we now have to have an equal number of home and away games. The game that the committee decided to change was week 1 and now we will be playing at John Stark HS Saturday Sept 2 at 2pm. It is not ideal but we need to adapt, improvise and overcome.

That is all for now but do not hesitate to reach out.

Today 8/19

Great effort and energy for the scrimmage yesterday. Thank you to everyone that came out to support in the heavy rain.

Today the boys have meetings at 830am and then on the field 930-12. We will have pizza right after in cafe as we are doing our mini-blitz for our fundraising cards right after practice. Should be finished somewhere between 1-2pm. 

Remind the boys to bring their cards that were handed out to them Wed night! 

The boys will then have off Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday in preparation of our joint practice with Goffstown Monday afternoon/evening. More details to follow. 

Thanks again!

Scrimmage Today

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for a solid week and half. I think the players have been adjusting well to the new culture.

Scrimmage today vs ConVal is still on and will adjust with the weather. Scrimmage starts at 6pm and players know that dynamic stretch is at 5:15pm.

I have an update on the apparel that was ordered over the summer. Word is that Under Armour felt like August was a good time to roll everything over to a new computer system and everything is back ordered. They are currently receiving around 3000 calls and emails a day as this is a nationwide issue. Apologize for any inconvenience but I'll keep you updated once I get updated. 

That is all for now. Thanks again for continued support.

Paperwork and Hydration

Parents and Players,

Great first night of practice. Keep the energy up and keep bringing the juice.

There are a few players, mainly upperclassmen, who still have paperwork they need turned into Pam the athletics office manager. Those medical and information forms to be handled asap or else those players will not be able to practice. 

Another friendly reminder is for all players to hydrate with water and Gatorade. Soda is bad for you. Eat plenty during the day and something before practice. Carb load and chocolate milk is perfect as well to fuel your body. Rest and sleep are equally as important! I'll remind you all after practice.

Pre Season Day 1

Hello All,

Great turn out for equipment issue yesterday. A few reminders:

Team Meeting starts at 5pm. Meet 10mins in early in locker room so you know which classroom we are going to.

Bring something to write with and on!

Practice is 6-9pm on turf in helmets and practice jersey. 

Parents, you will find that once we get off the field, put pads away and back into locker room, it will be more like 9:15pm. General rule of thumb is actual pickup time would be about 20mins after practice is over. 

See you later today!

Football Signups for Returners/UNH Football Skills Clinic Thur June 1

Men,

Football signups are right after school Thur June 1 for all returning and new players who are currently in grades 9-11. Check with Dick Miller but I'm assuming it will be in the cafe. Current 8th graders will have their signups on June 8. 

There will be a one night UNH Football Skills Clinic at Stellos Stadium Thur June 1 as well. I attended these in high school as well and those guys are great. Attached you will find the flyer and waiver form. Just bring the waiver with you to the field and if you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out. I'll be in the 603 in a couple of weeks!

Greetings Saber Football

Greetings SHS Football Parents and Friends!

Hello everyone. I'm Robin Bowkett and honored and humbled to be the new head football coach for the Souhegan Sabers. My wife and I are both SHS '01 alums and as you can imagine, our families are equally excited for us to get back home with our two young girls. 

Souhegan is a dream job for me. All of my best friends to this day, are guys that I played high school football with and were all in my wedding. Coach Beliveau was an instrumental mentor in my life and still is to this day. I bleed black and gold. 

Some dates for families to put on the calendar. Preseason starts Wed Aug 9th. We will most likely do equipment issue the day before for those who did not pick them up earlier in the summer. We will have an optional mini-camp the week prior at either the Hampshire Dome or Bishop Guertin like they have done in the past. We will also have optional weight lifting and skill work throughout the summer. More details on mini-camp and the summer to follow once those dates and times are solidified. 

I'll be in town March 29-April 2. I'll be meeting with the team right after school Thur March 30. There will also be a meet and greet with the head coach that night as well for parents. Time and place will be announced by the boosters. I'll also be meeting with the 8th graders during their lunch period at some point one of those days. 

That is about it for now. I apologize for delay in email as I was having a few issues with the website. My hope is to be in Amherst permanently in early June. My family will be staying with my folks for most of the summer as looking for jobs, houses and relocating does not happen overnight. Below is my personal contact info and the best way to get a hold of me. I can answer any and all questions and will do so when I meet with the parents the evening of March 30.

Thank you and really excited to coach the young men and get back to our roots,

Robin Bowkett
