Words of Wisdom
Take timeouts to stop the violence
Quit trying to control others
Ask, don't demand
Accept differences
Speak quietly.  Don't swear
Treat others with respect

Thursday night, April 2nd, our games against Germantown (at home) will be played in benefit of Magnolia Jones.  She is the 4 year old daughter of Jason and Emily Jones in Brookhaven, MS and is Coach Wilkerson's cousin who was diagnosed with Leukemia last June.  She is currently in remission, but will have to continue chemo and blood transfusions for at least 2 1/2 years.
"Strike Out Cancer" t-shirts, and "Warrior Princess" silicone wristbands will be available for purchase, with all proceeds going to the Jones family.  Only a set number of shirts will be available (reorders are not possible).  S-XL = $12 each.  2XL = $14 each.  Wristbands (hot pink w/purple print) = $2 each.  CASH ONLY!  Please click links for photo of "Strike Out Cancer" t-shirt design and #PLAY4MAGNOLIA flyer for more information.
It's a Great Day to Be a Titan!
Thank you!
