Good Morning,

Football season is here. Some of the upperclassmen just finished a three-day camp in Ashland where they were able to get a taste of new expectations moving forward as well as compete versus some solid programs. They did great and worked very hard. We definitely improved over the three days.

Today is media day (picture day). Photos will be taken of the payers in their Blue Jersey’s with khakis or khaki shorts. If your athlete does not have a blue game jersey please plan to arrive at the school around 3:30 to be issued a jersey. THERE WILL NOT BE PARENT MEETING FOLLOWING MEDIA DAY. MONDAY AUGUST 19 THERE IS AN ATHLETIC MEETING FOR ALL ATHLETES @ 6 pm.

Friday kicks off the pre-season. Freshman who has not received equipment will be issued equipment on Friday @ 3 pm and Coach Shumaker will hold a brief Team meeting for all freshman football players as well immediately following equipment issue.

If any varsity players have not been issued equipment, the should plan on arriving at the school around 2:30. Also, if you have not turned in an updated physical to Mr. Parcells, please do so prior to Friday. Athletes will not be able to participate without an updated physical on file. If you have any questions please reach out to Mr. Parcells jparcells@medwayschools.org

Please refer to the school athletic website for schedules. If there is a change, a message will go out through HUDL to all the athletes and it will also be reflected on the school website.

Hello Medway Gridiron Families,

Hope you’re enjoying your summer, hard to believe that the start of football season is just around the corner.

We will kick off the season with our annual Media Day event taking place on Thursday, August 15th at the High School North Field. Tim Rice will once again provide his services for both the individual and team shots as well as our home game photo-historian.

Tim will shoot 3 Varsity (including Senior Night parent photos), 2 JV, 2 Freshman and the Thanksgiving Day games. All photos from the games will be available to anyone who purchases the game day pass package. This is a great way to get professional, action shots of your athlete; Tim does a terrific job capturing the energy of the game in his photos from the participants and the crowd.

Photos will be taken of players in their BLUE jerseys (chinos or shorts) and cheerleaders in full uniform, starting with football at 4:15 followed by Cheer at 5:15. An order form is available at https://www.teampages.com/teams/834763-Medway-Mustangs-Gridiron-Club-football-team-website/documents/515308. It also can be downloaded from the Gridiron website at www.medwaygridiron.com under Downloadable Forms Gridiron Documents.

Please complete the form and mail it to Medway Gridiron, PO Box 651, Medway, MA. Alternately, you may send the form and payment with your athlete on the day of the shoot; however, we ask that you email us to confirm their participation prior to the event. Do include the athlete’s name and year of graduation in the correspondence, we will monitor the roster closely to ensure we connect with all registered families.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out via email at MGIMediaDay2019@gmail.com should you have any questions or concerns regarding this event.

We look forward to another great season, go Mustangs!

Sincerely,

Grace Hayes and Keith Palos
