I wanted to use this platform today to acknowledge my high school alma mater, St. John’s Catholic Prep.

Last week, during the inaugural football game on their new field, the Vikings hosted the Winters Mill High School Falcons. At one point during the game, one of the Falcons, Greyson Lyons, collapsed on the field, and medical personnel performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and chest compressions in addition to using a defibrillator.

“From what I hear of high school football dynamics in other parts of the country…” ? Other school communities would not empathize with such a sudden terrible event? Would not not feel for the child, the parents, the friends? Where is that?



It is little wonder so few people write to the FNP or frequent the comment section. Perhaps you should re-read the paragraph that you try to portray so negatively. Kudos the the St. John community


nelga, Even stipulating that few people write LTEs or frequent the comments (how many lurkers are there anyway?), what is the nexus between Deb’s comment and those alleged situations?


Apparently I have been unveiled as the Great Manipulator…where would I have learned this. Oh, wait! A year Catholic orphanage, 12 years Catholic school… maybe it was an elective… Our daughter played bball for the Lady Vikings when attending “little” St. John’s, Catholic school is what we know. But she also went to TJ as our first public school experience. I was impressed. I was thinking school are this way. My bad 🤷🏻‍♀️


Excuse me, sir? He said he would “hope” so. This infers, possibly not so. School communities are caring. This would stop him writing again? I didn’t know I was so powerful.


Agreed, Deb.[thumbup][thumbup][thumbup]. I don't think your comment disparaged anyone. I would also be surprised if any other school didn't do the same.
