The coaches in our lives make an indelible impression on our children. They are a close-knit part of our community and lives. Students, fans and team members will have games that may be won or lost, but no one will ever forget the life lessons given to them by their teacher and coach.
The scoreboard is an integral part of every game and event, of every coach's and athlete's life. Not only does it herald school spirit, it tells the team where they are and where they should be--information essential to team problem-solving, decision-making, and success. As the saying goes, if you're not keeping score, it's only practice.

The clock occupies a prominent space on any scoreboard. Although the score determines winners and losers, the clock brings a sense of urgency and perspective. It holds us accountable. Until the final tick of the clock, the meaning of the score is tempered by the amount of time remaining. Thanks to Yogi Berra, we know "It ain't over till it's over."
The scoreboard reveals the numerical rewards for achieving goals. It will not only celebrate our Eagles' successes, but it will drive them to succeed!
