2006 SPS Football Schedule

Collin embarks upon that right of passage that not only his father, but most all of his uncles also crossed before him. This marks the first year of his participation on a scholastic football team. In order to foster as much encouragement as possible, we would like to invite everyone to come to at least one regular season game.

With rare exception, all Dallas Parochial League games take place on Sunday afternoon. A look at this year's schedule reveals this holds true for all games played by Saint Paul the Apostle. If you find yourself with a couple of hours to kill one afternoon, we would welcome your support.

2006 School Year

For the first time in four years, both Rebecca and Collin begin school on the same day.!

Rebecca enters the twelfth grade and bears the mantle of one amongst many of the Seniors of '07. This fall also marks her second year as a Sterling Star and her sixth as a member of a Drill Team. Among her academic challenges of the year are enrollment in AP Biology and AP English. She is looking forward to both as well as the celebratory and accomplished atmosphere of Senior Year.

Collin begins the year midway through his Middle School career as an entering Seventh Grader. It also heralds his first exposure to the pigskin as he becomes a member of the Packers football program. Summer training programs have identified a proficiency as a lineman and Collin will begin the year in the position of offensive guard and defensive tackle — just as his father did oh so many years ago.

We invite all of our friends and family to join us in wishing Rebecca and Collin the very best during this 2006-2007 academic year and hope you will all consider supporting them in their endeavors.
