HCGLC Suggestion Box

Holy Cross Gridiron Leadership Council Mission: committed to excellence in helping the Holy Cross Crusaders win on and off the field. 

Fellow Crusaders, 

I hope this communication finds you and yours all doing well. As I write, our Crusaders are riding the crest of a two game winning streak and poised for a huge league matchup this Saturday at Fitton Field against the resurgent Georgetown Hoyas. With every game from here on in effectively a 'playoff' game let's give the men a huge home field advantage on Saturday at Fitton for Family Day. 

Please bring your pride, your passion, and your immediate and extended families to Fitton this Saturday. Give another Hoiah and a Chu Chu rah rah.....LET'S WIN!!

"I Hate Losing..."

Fellow Crusaders,

Who doesn't hate losing? But then who is willing to put in the requisite effort and has the ability to lead a team to success? 

There is a quote in a newspaper today which address losing. There is another quote highlighted just below and captured in an interview almost eight years ago which addresses effort. 

"We have to begin this process by outworking other people in all areas.  A great work ethic can solve a lot of problems, but we also have to improve on other fronts .......
"I believe that Holy Cross will climb back to the top of the Patriot League ........." 

Talk about keeping one's word. Tom Gilmore and our Crusaders have put in huge effort over the years. 

This year's contingent will look to rebound tomorrow at Fitton Field against the Big Green of Dartmouth on Kid's Day. Bring your own kids and all their buddies. 

What does Coach Gilmore have to say about tomorrow's game? From today's Worcester Telegram

"I hate losing, maybe more than anyone in the world..."
