A successful football team is one where the players and coaches work together to achieve their goals.

While the bulk of the attention is given to those players and coaches there are plenty of other people who make a football team go every day of the season and the offseason.

One group of people that might just be the most important is the football moms. Whether it’s making meals that keep the player strong, doing that dirty laundry or giving the support that helps the player stay focused the football mom is in the silent force behind a successful football program.

Sport Shake and PrepsKC want to honor these unsung heroes with the first annual Mom of the Week contest. Each week you can nominate a mother for the Mom of the Week contest by submitting an essay telling us why your mom’s impact is important to your individual or team success. Each week the winning essay will earn that team’s booster club a $1,000 gift courtesy of Sport Shake.

This week’s winner is Ronda Scott of Truman. She was nominated by Patriots’ Activities Director Eric Holm.

Here is Holm’s nomination:

“Ronda Scott of Truman High School is MOTW every week. She is an Assistant Principal at our school with all of the responsibilities that entails. After the day is over she puts on her Super Mom cape. She is in charge of the team meal every Thursday. Preparing, setting up, organizing, serving, cleaning up for the entire team and coaches. Of course, she has help but she is the one getting all of the other moms and dads to pitch in.

“She does the same thing for road games in preparing care packages. She pays for much of it out of her own pocket. She is at every varsity football game. It would be nice if she could just enjoy the game as any other parent but often is dragged into other “principal like” duties. Few people have the dual responsibility she does and even fewer are able to pull it off with the aplomb and grace of Ronda Scott.”

To enter next week’s contest submit an essay detailing the work of your special Mother. The essays need to be 200 words or less and can be submitted to momoftheweek@prepskc.com
