I knew if I waited a little while, something would be in the newspaper about the Wasco High School football team.

I agreed with the parent who wrote the Dec. 4 letter "CIF cheated Wasco's unbeaten football team," but if her son had robbed a store or a bank, it would have been headline news . We just see what the kids do that is wrong, but never when they do something great, like having an unbeaten football team.

Congratulations to the team and the staff and the town -- you did a great job. No one can take that away.
