Some seasons are tougher than others. The Avenger Football team is in the middle of a tough one, with a 1-3 conference record and a 1-5 record overall. After a heartening Homecoming win Sept. 30, the team dropped the next two games, a 27-7 loss to Burrillville Oct. 8 and a 47-14 loss against East Providence Oct. 14.

They play St. Raphael Academy (3-1 in conference play) this Saturday (10/22) away at noon. Go Avengers!

Adversity build character. This is a character building season
for the Avengers, BUT, it is also a building
block for success. Don’t give up ! Don’t ever give up.
Half of life and success is showing up and persevering.
Good Luck for the rest of the season AND for your future.

A former Avenger #23
