    Send an email to
    ShabayPhotographyteam@gmail.com with the following information: GHS Mustangs, their team (Freshman, JV or Varsity) and jersey number. The Shabay team will be happy to offer guidance and assistance. 

    When will I receive the FOOTBALL PLAYER BUTTON that I ordered?  
    Thank you so much for your patience. The football player buttons will arrive on either Friday or Saturday of this week. If they arrive Friday, they we be available to be picked up at the BBQ cookout after the inter-squad scrimmage on Saturday at 11:30a. If they arrive on Saturday, I will run them by the school and the kids can pick them up from Coach A on Monday. Either way, you will have them before the Argyle scrimmage next week.

    Mustang Nation,

    Our second season has arrived.  It’s playoff time and I want everyone to know that this year has been special because of the support you have given your son and our coaching staff. 

    As a parent of two high school and middle school athletes, I understand the commitment it takes from the entire family to effectively support a student athlete through an athletic season.  For that I say “thank you”.

    I also want to encourage you that from this moment forward we must maximize every minute of preparation we have at our disposal so please avoid scheduling anything during practice time that can be avoided. 

    We will try our best to clearly communicate every player’s role throughout the playoffs. Some JV players may be asked to fill in as a backup varsity player in order to provide depth to our roster.

    At this point in the season, we are no longer JV / Varsity players we are all Mustangs with one goal- 2019 5A-1 State Champions!  With that said, for communication purposes, you will continue to see JV/Var on our weekly schedule.

    Please know that we desire for each one of our team members to travel with us to our game this week. We plan on taking a fourth bus for all of our JV and Freshman team members who wish to attend and they will be on the sideline with the team wearing jeans/sweats and a jersey. 

    We will communicate the game day itinerary for both the varsity roster as well as the JV/9th by Wednesday morning.

    Thank you again for your continued support of Mustang Football.

    Coach Alexander

    Freshman Weekly Information From Coach Dillard

    11.10.19

    Mustang Nation,

    Thank you to everyone who has come out and supported the freshmen football teams this season. I am extremely proud of both teams and the growth that they have showed this season.

    The freshmen have a combined record of 14-5 on the season. The Blue team finished the season with a 28-7 win over Colleyville bringing their overall record to 7-2 on the season. The Red team finished the season with a 62-0 win over R.L. Turner bringing their overall record to 7-3 on the season. 


    Our Varsity team will play Friday against Azle at 7pm at Azle High School. During the playoffs we would like to invite all freshmen football players who are eligible to travel with us and be on the sideline during the game. Players must show up each day to practice and workouts and be in good academic standing in order to travel with us. 

    Thank you for supporting your son in so many ways.  Our team cannot reach its full potential without your encouragement and support.  If you have any questions contact Coach Dillard via email, joshua.dillard@gcisd.net.

    Coach Dillard

    R & R By Tiffany M. Phillips, M.Ed, LAT, ATC

    We’ve made it through week 10 of football season and that means one thing for all of us… we’re exhausted; mentally, physically and emotionally just worn down.

    Football season is a grind. The days are long, and the work is hard. I’ll be the first to admit that after a long week come Saturday afternoon, my only desire is to lay on the couch and do absolutely nothing. I love what I do, however I continue to love what I do because I take the chance I can to rest and recharge. The key to enduring any length or adversity is recognizing the need to take care of ourselves.  When we rest and recharge, it serves as recovery to our body. Research has proven there is a direct correlation between lack of recovery and increased incidence of health problems. 

    Recognition of feeling worn down is key. Not allowing ourselves to get to a burnout point is important. If our check engine light in the car came on we wouldn’t think to ourselves “Eh, I’ll just ignore this until my car completely breaks down on the side of the road”. We shouldn’t do this to our body either. Signs such as abnormal exhaustion, decreased interest, ineffectiveness, forgetfulness, mood changes such as anxiety or anger all serve as our body’s check engine light coming on. When we begin to feel this way is when the body is in dire need of rest and  recharging.  

    For me, my R & R comes from a good book, on the couch in my PJs, with my dogs; though I can’t see many of being able to talk your boys into using reading as an escape. Everyone is different in what recharges them. Below are some examples of ways to recharge both physically and mentally:

    • Physically

      • Proper diet and hydration

      • Stretch

      • Get enough sleep

    • Mentally

      • Do something fun

      • Spend time with friends and family

      • Take a break from technology

    Now this does not mean skipping pre-scheduled responsibilities like practices and weights, it means making intentional decisions to take care of yourself during down time. Hopefully we can design the hours in our day to build in some time to take care of yourself and prevent feeling worn down. 

    We hope to be grinding for many more weeks to come, and with the work comes the rest. Let it be well deserved!

    As always, thank you for allowing me to care for your boys.

    Go Mustangs,
    Tiffany
