This year was the 34th Lift a Thon.  The first Lift a Thon was put on by coach Barrett in 1981-82 to help fundraise for weight training equipment.  This is the Truckee Football team’s top fundraiser and has been for years.  The school record was 310lbs. held by Cole Roberts.  Cole was about only 195 lbs. but packed a punch.  He is one of two players in our history to be part of 3 State Championship teams.  This year Cole’s record was beat by Erik

Acevedo topped all freshman with a 200lb Bench Press.  Here he is still working up.

The Red vs White game has been a great way to end our Spring Camp.  The outgoing seniors lead the match up 2-0.  Can this be the year our future Wolverines take down the SENIORS?

Also, come out and watch the 2015 Wolverines take on the outgoing seniors in our 3rd Annual Red vs White 7 on 7.  This year there will be some guest Alumni participating in the competition and it should be entertaining.  We appreciate all of the support that we get from the community of Truckee and our Alumni.  It would be awesome to see the gym packed on the Lift a Thon night and also the filling some seats for the Red vs White Game.  WOLVERINES!!!

Estabrook

Coach Estabrook coined the phrase “Truckee Pride” in 1989 and he put this in the Sierra Sun the week after the State Championship loss to Boulder City in late November of that year.

On Saturday, November 18, the Truckee community pulled together for something that was not political, controversial, or self-serving.  It wasn’t about the bye-pass, a new shopping center or incorporation; it was about our kids and a community that can pull together regardless of political differences.

Over 2,000 people turned out for a local football game, the only reason being to support our high school.  The football team wasn’t able to deliver the Nevada AA State Championship to Truckee, but it did deliver a sense of pride to the Truckee Community.  It also delivered a chance to reflect on what a great place this is to live, and that the small town spirit is alive and important to us all.

Our team’s motto is “Truckee Pride.”  Think about it.  We all have it.

Thanks to everyone for your support.”
