The “Boys of Fall” are back once again—-ONE MORE GAME VI will be played on Saturday, September 1 at Williamson Field in Pontiac. This “fantasy camp” for guys wanting to relive their glory days, experience the game of football for the first time, or just want to put on the pads one more time are eligible to play. In 2011, several cahnges were made that made the whole experience the best one yet.
The second time around for the Performer of the Week Contest proved to be extremely noteworthy.
In our initial fall season back in 2010, we had a total of 94,416 votes cast by 1907 voters. This year in 2011, we 244,781 votes cast by 4100 voters.
Last winter, from 2010-2011, we had 174,314 votes cast by 2381 voters, a sizeable increase. This year, though, we had 259,729 votes processed from 6796 voters.
One week this winter, we had votes come in from over 30 countries. We averaged voters from 22 different states each week this season compared to 16 last year.
What does all this mean??? Whether it was a first-time winner like El Paso-Gridley, GCMS, our last winner Streator, or some consistent winners like Cumberland, LeRoy or Pontiac, we have communities that love their sports, their athletes, and their schools.
This little weekly get-together is designed to help promote the GOOD high school kids do. As we look ahead to this coming fall, we hope you believe it’s all been worth it!
Thanks to all of you from Champion Fitness Physical Therapy!
The Streator Bulldog Boys Basketball Team!
You won the Regional in Triple OT, and you’ve won $100 for your school’s PE Department – in a landslide victory!!
Good luck as you move on to Sectionals this Tuesday against Champaign Central! Go Bulldogs!!!
This was our FINAL Performer of the Week Contest for the year. We will not continue this contest during the spring season, but we will keep you posted on our plans for next year. In the meantime, Champion Fitness Physical Therapy challenges you to GET BUSY LIVING!
Dr. Clint Witsman PT of the Champion Fitness Physical therpay group explains the benefits of trying the Triton DTS Traction Unit as a means of confronting low back or cervical pain. Much like a spinal decompression unit, this is a non-invasive technique that those patients with either low back or cervical pain might want to try. It’s simple and easy to use.
The Performer of the Week contest was designed for communities to rally to the support of their local high school athletic teams, give them some recognition, and, if they are fortunate to have a strong following, win $100 for their school’s PE department. Nobody else does it better than LeRoy!
Through 11 weeks this winter, the Panthers have walked away with SIX first place finishes, an unheard of number any way we look at it. It culminated this week with Victory #6, a combined effort of the State trophy winners—-the Class 1A 4th place title for the girls basketball program and the Class 1A Dual Championship for the wrestling team. Two teams with one thing in mind—winning!
But the story goes a bit beyond that! Each time I came to LeRoy High School to present a framed certificate and an envelope with a check in it, I was always greeted by an appreciative AD and office staff. I met a group of high school kids who were obviously proud of their accomplishments, yet were very cooperative when I approached them about getting their pictures taken. I saw a school that had Panther Pride splattered all over, with signs and banners recognizing achievements of both the athletes and the ACADEMICS being taught in the building! (“Read!” was my favorite.) The community involvement? Just take a look at all of the pictures with fire truck rides around town!
Like so many other high schools and communities in our Champion Fitness Physical Therapy area, LeRoy does things the right way. We have one week to go, and I hope this final winner enjoys it with the same enthusiasm that the other towns and school have shown so far. This is what high school athletics should be all about!
They’ve done it again!!!! For the sixth time this winter, LeRoy High School wins the Performer of the Week contest!
And deservedly so! Last week, their Girls Basketball team finsihed 4th in IHSA Class A while the wrestling team captured the IHSA 1A Dual Championship. Lots to be proud of in that town—plenty of reasons for fire truck rides through the streets!!! Another certificate…another $100 for the Panthers!
ONE MORE CHANCE!!! Our final contest begins now…Entries are due at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday
