It started as a game. Little
kids laced their shoes and strapped on their guards.
Invading Campton, Peck, and Dunham with the skill and
speed that would help make them a name.
As the kids grew, so did the interest of the people
around them. They no longer just played for fun. They
played to represent their colors. They played to
represent family and friends. They played to win.
With each victorious season the name grew. People knew
of them and they understood why. Times changed but the
name still held the prominence of old.
Then the star was born. Borders became boundaries of
loyalty. The once united town split not by disagreement,
However, on this cold December day, the kids are now
adults and return to play again. They lace their shoes
and strap on their guards. They have come back, not for
the glory or the sense of pride. They are back to share
new stories with the ones they grew next to and
respected and those they used to play with.
