KMBC Game of the Week

KMBCThank you to everyone that voted online this week for Winnetonka vs Liberty North as KMBC Game of the Week. We had over 83,000 votes! And we needed all of them as Staley vs Fort Osage was a close second in the voting (77,000 votes).

Come out tomorrow at 5:00 for the Griffin Spirit Walk and Homecoming Parade. Stick around for the Channel 9 pregame coverage led by Hall of Famer Len Dawson.

Did you know that Coach Edwards' youngest son is named after Len Dawson? (His name is Dawson Edwards).

New Tradition: 2013 Spirit Walk Details

Spirit WalkWinnetonka begins a new homecoming tradition this year! Come be a part of it! The football team will get off the team busses at DFS for the game right at 5PM (when the Homecoming Parade is scheduled to begin). Be there at the start of the parade route (between Macken Park and the District Football Stadium) to welcome the team to their home field and “high-five” them as they prepare for the homecoming game.

Details: After unloading the busses on 27th Street in the Macken Park parking lot, the players and coaches will then walk to the stadium. This area is the beginning route of the Homecoming Parade that will immediately follow the Spirit Walk. We need your help! We want ALL students, parents, and fans to line the sidewalk to cheer for the team and wish them good luck. The players will walk through the "human tunnel" on their way to the stadium as they prepare for the night's important Homecoming Game. Come for the Spirit Walk then spread out for the Homecoming Parade!

News: Liberty Game to be on MetroSports

MetroSportsWinnetonka's opening game vs. Liberty on Friday, August 30, 2013 will be broadcast live on MetroSports. The game will be played at NKC's District Football Stadium. Last season, the Bluejays finished with a record 6-5 (3-2 in the Suburban Big 6 Conference). This will be the second year in a row that the teams have opened the season against each other. Last year at William Jewell, Liberty defeated Winnetonka 27-18.

Digi Camo HelmetIn addition to being the season opening game for both teams, the Winnetonka football program along with the Winnetonka Touchdown Club will "Honor Freedom" by collecting donations which will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Throughout the evening, we will recognize the armed services. Additionally, fans in attendence will have a chance to donate to the cause.

We are acutely aware of the many contributions and sacrifices that have been made by all of our military and we are committed to recognizing that sacrifice. It is the least we can do to say "thanks" for those selfless contributions made on our behalf.
