If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,
If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!

Varsity wins In-Season County Championship, JV registers perfect season
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
Theodore Roosevelt, THE MAN IN THE ARENA, Excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic", delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910
VARSITY WINS IN-SEASON COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP
The Falcons didn’t get on the board until late in the game this evening, but Kyle Albach scored his 13th goal of the season after an through-pass by Daniel Kwon with less than two minutes of time remaining in regular time, to give Severna Park a 1-0 win over South River.
The win meant that Severna Park won the Regular Season County Champions title for the first time since 2009.
JV ENDS SEASON WITH 4-0 WIN, SECURES PERFECT 14-0 RECORD
Junior Varsity beat South River 4-0 in their last game of the season. The 2012 Baby Falcons ended the season with a perfect 14-0 record, scoring 50 goals while giving up 2 (only 1 goal was surrendered during the regular season) and registering 12 shut-outs.
Congratulations to the JV Players and Coach Morgan on a fantastic season!!!
