PeeWee 2 had a special guest suprise them in their change room at the Six Nations Confederacy Tournament this past weekend.
The PeeWee 2 Chiefs were warming up in their change room to face off against the Mimico Mountaineers 2 team when suprise guest Six Nations Arrows and Six Nations Rebels player Layne Smith arrived to give the boys a pregame pep talk. Layne came at the behest of head Coach Eno and gave the boys some tips and tricks and basic lessons to play the best you can. "If you're the smallest, be the fastest. If you're the biggest, hit the hardest. If you can throw, throw the hardest." And Layne knows what he's talking about. He's just broken the record of scoring 132 goals in a regular season (and continues to add to that number) and has one of the, if not THE hardest shot with the quickest release in the Jr A leauge.
Layne stayed to watch our boys lose in a nail biting 3-2 defeat and came back later that afternoon before their second game to encourage them to play their hardest and give it their all. There may have even been talk of a secret play that was taught.... but that I can neither deny nor confirm. Our boys took the floor pumped up with their heads high ready to face the Six Nations Warriors 3 team, with their special guest sitting right behind their bench cheering them on to their 4-0 shut out.
Thank you Layne for coming out to inspire us, and thank you Coach Eno for arranging it.
