Athletes of the Week Dec. 1
A hard-working senior for the Cape football team, Jackson may have saved his best game for the Nov. 24 win over Sussex Central in the DIAA semifinals. The undersized linebacker is an extension of the coaching staff on the field. “He puts in countless hours of film work and makes all of our defensive adjustments and checks,” said coach Mike Frederick. “He can recite any play of the upcoming opponent and asks questions in advance of practice or the game when he wants more clarity. He is flying to the ball on defense and has become a sure-handed tackler. Jackson was a key contributor to the defense, limiting Central’s powerful backs between the tackles. He may not have had the most tackles Friday, but he had some of the most meaningful.”
Each coach and player are central figures in Friday night football
The best of us - The brightest light shined down on the darkest day for the family of Freds on a drizzly October morning back in 2017: the sending-home mass for No. 5 Cape quarterback Tom Frederick. The village turned out, tightening the circle that makes our community short-story surreal – a place like no other place. Juan Saez was given the task of organizing teammates to escort Tom from the church. The Cape football team wore yellow laces the rest of the season, and an autographed helmet was presented to our family. The field hockey team showed up in uniform, members of the running community, the gay community, wheelchaired friends, same-day surgery patients up from anesthesia. Buddies from NA meetings filed in, and Tom’s treatment team drove down from Wilmington. Cliffvon Howell gave the eulogy about focusing on kids growing up together in a small town. My nephew Mike, who always called us the Beach Freds, said to me after the service, “I didn’t know places like this still existed in the world. What a beautiful community.” Mike later applied for the open Cape football job. Freds stayed out of the way; he was on his own. Before he accepted the position, like something out of a “Godfather” movie, he came to the house to ask permission from his aunt and uncle, Susan and Fredman. "Your family has an amazing thing going on here. I don't want to drop in and mess it up,” Mike said. Every coach and kid under a helmet Friday night is the central figure of an amazing journey here at Sesame Street by the Sea. It is always about “us.” There is a safety net that catches us when we fall, muppets lift us up and dust us off and pass no judgements. The heat is on and the fire trucks are idling.
