You may have missed last week, but let’s finish strong.
We are hoping for a big turnout tomorrow night as we finish the April Tuesday Night Spirit Nights.
Plan now to go to Jim N Nicks for dinner on Tuesday night where the management pledges to donate a portion of each ticket back to the football program.
See you there!
Every Tuesday night in April, the Walker Vikings are having a spirit night at a local restaurant.
The next stop is Johnny Brusco’s on Tuesday, April 15th.
At each stop, the management has agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds from each ticket back to the high school football team.
We have seen large crowds the past two weeks, and we want it to grow each week. Invite your friends and co-workers, grandparents and teachers!
The deal will work whether you eat in or get pizza for take out, just be ready to hand them your card with your ticket total.
Click on the file below to print a card in advance, or just show up and let the guys give you one at the door.
See you there! Spirit Night for Walker Viking Football-Johnny Bruscoes
Football is more than just lifting weights and practicing plays.
At Walker High School, the coaching staff has made building leaders a top priority.
Teammates are guided through a comprehensive and well planned program that focuses on reaching individual goals and character development. The coaching staff follows a weekly plan that gives the players both small group and large group sessions where a different character trait is discussed.
In addition, on Wednesday’s the coaches have scheduled a series of guest speakers to come in and speak to the boys about educational options, career choices and personal development.
This week, we were thankful to have Walker County District Judge Greg Williams come and spend an hour with the team in a frank and informative discussion about the law and how it affects teens in our county. Judge Williams gave several examples of situations where teens can quickly get involved in activities that lead to arrests and possible jail time. The room was quiet as Judge Williams shared story after story of how guys just like ours made one bad decision that cost them their future. He welcomed questions and the team felt very comfortable asking about various situations and incidents and how the law impacts the outcomes.
Coach Brunner commented, “Today has been great for the guys. Judge Williams simply told them like it is, and I think this hour may help prevent an unfortunate situation in the future.”
Coach Ryan Hall has been instrumental in scheduling the speakers that have included Councilwoman Jennifer Smith, real estate broker Brian Alexander, banker Walker Wilson, fitness instructor and business owner Stacy Seals, author and photographer Al Blanton, and insurance agent Gina Scruggs.
The series will continue next week as we welcome newspaper publisher Jack McNeely.
Last week we saw a great turnout for our Tuesday Night Spirit Night at Los Reyes. The fundraiser was a success and the team was encouraged by the fans who came out to support the program.
This week, our Tuesday Night Spirit Night will be held at Full Moon BBQ in Jasper from 5-9 pm.
Simply visit the restaurant and either dine in or carry out and Full Moon will donate a portion of your ticket amount back to the football program.
Players will be stationed inside to hand out a spirit night card that will ensure that your ticket gets added into the total amount.
You can also print the attached page and hand out these tickets to friends, family and co-workers and encourage them to visit Full Moon this Tuesday, April 8th.
See you there, and as always, thank you Jasper for your continued support of Walker Viking Football!
