Summer Letter

Parents & Fightin’ Irish Athletes,

The summer is quickly drawing to an end and there is some very important information that I would like to communicate to everybody.  We still have SAC (Strength & Conditioning) at 8:00 AM (boys), 9:00 AM (girls) and 7:00 PM (anybody) on Monday - Thursday until July 27th.  We have not had the attendance that I hoped. We, as coaches, truly believe the work you have done during the off-season and summer will prove how important winning is to you.

With the start of the 2018 - 2019 Season right around the corner, you need to make sure you have an updated physical.  Physicals are valid for two years. We advertised and offered an opportunity to get it done at the clinic on July 10th.  The school will pay for you to get one up until the start of practice, you just need to make an appointment with the clinic in town and communicate it with Coach Vickers.

Cross Country practice is starting the first of August.  For information regarding that please contact Coach Ryan and Coach Prescott.

First day of High School Football practice will Monday, August 6th @ 8:00 AM.  Players need to report no later than 7:30 AM. Summer Football Practice Schedule will be posted on our social media outlets and the school website.

We urge all football players to bring their own cleats, if they would like some new ones.  We will have plenty of extras, but they will be a year old.

We are having the Fightin’ Irish Football Camp from July 30th - August 1st for incoming 3rd through 9th graders.  See website for details.

JH Athletes, we will be issuing equipment and workout clothes for each the first week of school.

I encourage everybody join the Fightin’ Irish Remind App.  All you have to do is text “@irish123” to 81010.  Check out the Shamrock ISD website for other athletic updates.

Lastly, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, I urge you to email me at or call / text at (325) 280-4499.
