Dear Mike:

I want to take a second to thank you for all your hard work this past season. I very much appreciate the sacrifices you made playing on the varsity your sophomore year. The experience you gained will pave the way for a great junior year. We are going to have a great team next year and I want you to be our strong safety. The secondary is the one area that we will have to solidify defensively and you will shoulder much of this responsibility.

I have chosen ten players that I am going to be working with closely. You are one of the ten. You are going to be part of a secret society within a secret society. I am going to call you guys the ďStar Chamber.Ē Donít ask me who the other nine are and donít tell anyone about this letter. Also, donít ask any of your teammates if they received a letter too. In time you will meet the other nine.

Right now, it is important that you not waste any time during the off-season. Studying, lifting and running will be the key to your success. You will be hearing from me again. If you need anything you can call me at 459-4211 (Muirlands), 281-5092 (Home) or leave a message on my voice mail (456-7648 Ext.1520). Remember, you are a member of the Star Chamber. Donít tell anyone, not even Coach Ponsford!

P.S. I hope you are not angry at me for putting Jon in against Hoover. I will explain my decision to you in the future. I hope you will understand.
