Just a note as some of you may not be aware that we have more football coaches that are not teachers on campus than we have had in a long time. Out of almost 20 coaches in our program only two work on our campus.
This is more and more common these days and can create some logistical and other challenges at times but is very manageable. Thank you for your understanding! Our coaches spend hours upon hours each day without much financial benefit back to them while sacrificing a ton of personal & family time. In the case of our varsity coaches, for example, they work a full day job and are at MV for team meetings at 5:00 p.m. and frequently stay past 9:00 p.m. Do the math on their free personal time or even their hourly wage and it's not great. It goes to show you that they coach because they love the game and most importantly---they love our boys! A big thank you to our football coaches!
We continue to hear of some booster club confusion. Our school has a wonderful main Mountain View Booster Club now run by football mom Cyndi Bowers and they do a lot of great things for different clubs and teams on campus and have done so for years.
We are the Toro Football Booster Club, Inc a 501c3 non profit with the sole purpose of benefiting the Toro football programs. To further clarify, Toro Football Booster Club does not receive sports program ad revenue, concession revenue, ticket revenue, or fence banner revenue (the banners that go around the football field perimeter fence). This revenue either goes to the main booster club (fence banners and sports program ads) or in the case of concessions; the performing arts booster clubs. We hope this helps some of you because we continue to have people say they thought they were donating to football by doing an ad, buying a banner on the fence, or buying food or game tickets. All of those are great things to help support Mountain View as a whole (and are very much needed) but the football program does not directly benefit from those. Our revenue comes solely from donations, sponsorships, card sales, email fundraisers, yard signs, reserved seats etc. We appreciate your support! Our new sponsors have been awesome in every way! As we have said before-- it takes a lot of money to run a successful top notch program that we can all be proud of.
The NFHS Network will continue to broadcast games over the internet. Please note there is no broadcast crew, however, there is a remote crew using a permanent camera at each school. Therefore, the quality of the broadcast might not be the greatest. However, for those that can't attend or live away, it is a great substitute. Link is Mountain View High School - Mesa Football - Mesa, AZ.
Friday night's game pics are on the Toro Shutterfly site. Special thanks to Troy Giles and Joanna Finkenkeller who take our wonderful game pics. Look for the Freshman and JV game day photos on this site as well! Anyone can view the pics but you will need a free Shutterfly account to download them.
Mesa Public Schools is using the GoFan App again for advanced ticket sales for all sports, both home and away games. Most of the games including freshman and JV are already loaded into the GoFan app so you can start purchasing tickets at your convenience.
