Words From Sam Breslin: WayCo is home.

After graduating from Wayland High in 2004, I left town on an odyssey of sorts. A post-grad year, four years of college football, and one of playing overseas kept me from home, even during those coveted summer months. I don’t hold a single regret from my travels, but I will admit I missed one thing. Every summer I was swamped by talk WayCo, and I felt left out. I was missing good times, great competition, and better friends. In the summer of 2010, six years later, I finally got my chance. I was home.


Oddly enough, though it was my first year as part of the league, I was already one of the old guys. Walking onto the field for my first game for Joe Dorr Carpentry I found myself in a unique situation. Looking around, I saw friends from high school, players I had coached, and students I would teach come the fall.



In a situation I thought might be awkward at first, the transition proved to be seamless. Stepping onto that field does something special. Everyone becomes a member of the same club. We are all a part of this town. Not only did this let me develop new friendships across the years, but it allowed me to build relationships with those who would look to me for guidance on the football field or in the classroom in the coming fall.



I consider myself lucky. Not because of the league championship we won during my first summer, but because I am able to be a part of such a community. This sense of community is overwhelming. WayCo has begun to bind this town together, and is a tradition I hope only continues to grow.
