Effort applauded

November 28, 2012
The Mining Journal

To the Journal editor:

Congratulations to Ishpeming Hematites players, Coach Olson and his assistant coaches on their outstanding season and their state championship victory.

Anyone who witnessed the final game saw the essence of sports on display and will surely not forget.

If there is such a thing as a perfect high school football game this final was it.

From the David and Goliath comparisons to the 110 percent effort given by the players and coaches to the gentlemen shaking hands after the game there was that magical aspect of athletics which is only very rarely palpable and real.

One could see the story of the 2012 Ishpeming Hematites as a movie the likes of "Hoosiers," "Ali," "Remember the Titans" and "Brian's Song."

Thank you to the Ishpeming players, coaches and fans. There is no doubt that what you accomplished is a masterpiece.
