The Creator's Team

The Creator looked around his team and found an empty place.  He then lookd down upon the earth, and saw your tired face.

He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.  The creator's team must be powerful he always takes the best.  He knew your were suffering, he knew that you were in pain, he knew that you would never get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb.  So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered, "Peace be thine"

It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn't go alone for part of us went with you the day the Creator called you home.

"Stripped Away"

  A mistake in the school districts grades enabled a great football player to play the sport he loves. As I sat there on the sidelines with this football player, me in my gear and him with not even a jersey, I still could not compete with the love that he had for his team.Even though he could not play, he still always cheered for the sport that he could not play. Although this player was not dealt very good cards, he still never gave up on football.  He hit the books and out worked any student in the school on his grades: it showed he finished his first nine weeks of eniligibility with all A's. He always bragged about how he was going to be able to play in his first game of the year. We all understood, he had worked hard and he deserved to play. His first game of the year was against Basic where we really need someone to step up and give us some momentum. He was the man! He finished the game with almost half a dozen solo tackles, two interceptions and two huge hits. We won that game, so it gave him another chance to play. We also played our next game where he also did good, and we won giving him another game to play. Coach always told us that this player would have a good game, " He is Hungry" when you are stripped of what you love to do, all you want is another chance to play. This Guy got his chance and he took advantage of it. He got to have fun again. He only got to play three games not knowing that his third would be his last. Almost six minutes before the game was over, a  collision occured and our player rose in triumph. As he looked back to see the player he had struck get up slowly he started to feel dizzy. As the player came off the field we all cheered for him and patted him up. The stands and the coaches and especially the players were not ready for what would happen next.....

 Edward Gomez RIP 11/23/03

 Our season is dedicated to to Ed Gomez's family and friends. But most of all to Ed who hung with us even when he didn't have to, who cheered when no one else was, and who befriended anyone no matter the circumstances. He was a great friend, brother, and most of all a great football player.

The One We Lost

As nights may pass

And days go by,

We sit and ponder

The question of WHY?

Why did you leave us?

What was going through your mind?

These are the questions

To which answers we hope to find.

Now that you’re gone

It won’t be the same.

No graduation or prom

Or even the last regional game.

Again we ask WHY?

And again and again.

How did it happen?

And what could’ve been?

Without any answers

I guess we’ll never know.

Remember this one thing my friend,

Our love for you will always show.

You will be remembered

And missed of by lots,

You will remain in our hearts

Just as well in our thoughts

You left us that day

Without any good-bye

Tears began to flow

As we all started to cry.

Good-bye to a friend

Who we recently lost

Good-bye to a friend

Who wanted to do everything possible no matter what the cost?

~~Chelsea Alderete~~

Dedicated to the

Gomez/Ramos families and Kelly
