Tigers thank community supporters | Letter

The Tiger football coaches, players and their families would like to send a huge thank you to the Friday Harbor community for helping us make this football program as safe and successful as possible.

We were able to purchase 60 brand new, top of the line Riddel Speed-Flex helmets this past year due to over $14,000 in generous donations from many local businesses.

Tiger football has been a long-standing Friday Harbor tradition, bringing the game of football to our younger kids, ages seven-14 years. Our volunteer coaches always put safety first and strive to instill in our players the importance of hard work, teamwork and love of the game. It seems to be working as all three of the Tiger teams (Juniors, Freshmen and Peewees) are headed to playoffs this year.

A big thank you to the following local businesses for supporting our program and helping our kids stay safe while playing the game they love: Kings Market and Valmark; San Juan Interiors; Susie’s Mopeds; Island Electric; Roche Harbor Resort and Marina; J&M Excavation; Hailey’s Sports Bar & Grill; Griffo Law; Roy’s Island Buzz & Drive-Thru; Gentry Aesthetics; Island Shredding; China Pearl Restaurant and Lounge; The Blue Water; Feliz Painting; Mr. Ryan Burke; Crystal Seas Kayaking; Lawson Construction; Schmidt Construction; and Evergreen Gateway.
