A Message from Head Coach Carl Abseck
This season is flying by. We’ve almost reached the halfway point. Just like every other season at Cedar Park, our boys are working hard toward one common goal. Cedar Park Football’s success year after year has never been about one player. Our success is best summed up in our team motto for the year…
~~~ ONE TEAM ~~~ ONE MISSION ~~~
One Team, One Mission…another State Championship.
To achieve that mission, it will take hard work and dedication from every member of the Cedar Park Football Family. And whether you volunteer to help on game day, or you’re a booster club board member, your hard work and dedication supports our players in their quest for another championship.
Fundraising is always a difficult thing, and no one likes to do it. But it’s a necessary evil. In order for this to work, we have to raise money. Our Championship goal means an additional 6 playoff games added on to our season. Those six games require travel, meals, training supplies, and much more. The funds the district provides do not come close to what is needed to run this program at a championship level. Thanks to you, and our past football family members, we have established a first class program here at Cedar Park. A program that most other teams, in the greatest football state in the country, strive to emulate.
I believe these young men are at the best point in their lives. They’re becoming mature enough to begin to really understand how the world works. But they’re still young enough to keep the trials and tribulations of the world at arm’s length. My ultimate goal in all of this is to make their time in this program the best experience that it can be. So when they look back later in life, Cedar Park Football holds a special place in their hearts. And every penny of your donation goes directly toward making that happen.
I’d like to ask for your help as we push into the second half of the season. We have some very big games ahead of us. We need your support. Help us to meet the financial needs of the program by giving, and sharing the link above, and asking your friends and family for their support as well.
The Cedar Park Football Family is more than just players and coaches. It’s much bigger than that. It includes every cheerleader, band member, trainer, teacher, and more, that has ever been a part of our program. And it also includes YOU. Thank you for your continued support.
ONE TEAM~ONE MISSION!
Head Coach/Athletic Coordinator
Did you know??
The total LISD budget for Cedar Park Football amounts to about $125 PER PLAYER, for the entire year!
NOBODY likes fundraisers, and we know that. But we don’t do these to make your life more difficult. We do it so our players can wear the safest equipment possible. We do it so they can wear a uniform they’re proud to wear. We do it so they can ride a more comfortable bus on that long trip home from the inevitable distant playoff game. Everything raised goes toward making our boys experience in high school football the BEST it can possibly be.
Safety is our first concern when it comes to our players. We will NEVER put our boys at risk by buying cheap equipment. A good quality helmet starts at $250, and the best run $350+. Good quality shoulder, thigh and knee pads, combined are well over $250 a set. Putting good quality protective knee braces on our lineman and quarterbacks is critical to keeping them safe. But those start around $200 each. With well over 200 players in the program, one set of helmets can easily cost over $75,000. So you can see how quickly just buying equipment to keep our players safe adds up.
We do everything we can to make the things we can control the best they can be for every player. They deserve that because they give us their everything they have, every day. We need your financial support to make that happen.
This is our second year doing this online fundraiser. It was a good fundraiser last year, but with your help, this year will be even better. You can help not only by giving, but also by sharing this with friends and family no matter where they are. Please, send them the link below and ASK for their help.
