Athletic Banquet

The Alvin/ Bonneau Football League recently celebrated their End of the Year Banquet at the Alvin Recreational Center. The league consists of many young and talented players, ranging from team Midgets ( youngest group), team Pee Wees, team Small Fries and team Bantams (oldest group). The cheerleading squad was also honored at the banquet.

The keynote speaker of the evening, Coach Andy Woolcock, encouraged all the players to always keep their grades up and also stay disciplined. He reminded them that playing football is a good sport, but they should always stayed focused on academics. All of the players, coaches and cheerleaders were treated to a steak dinner, which was sponsored by the league’s booster club.

We would also like to send a special congratulations to the Small Fry team. They were selected to travel to Columbia, S.C. this past weeekend to compete in the Carolina GridIrons Classic tournament at Irmo High School.

Hometown Athletic Standout

Congratulations are being sent to Jamari Nelson, RB for our Timberland Wolves. Jamari was recently chosen, among many other area players, as the Journal Scene’s Player of the Week. In a power packed game against Kingstree, Jamari rushed for 170 yards and 2 touchdowns on carries of 21 and 7 for a big win. Jamari was a big standout this whole junior year. He is the son of William and Beverly Nelson of Jamestown. Way to go, Jamari!

However, we are still sending congratulations to the team for a season well played. Led by Coach Art Craig and staff, the Wolves ended their outstanding season with a 9-3 record. Well done, Wolves!
