Unfortunately on Monday afternoon, Mike and Steve Cluen were in a car accident on their way to practice. Steve has a couple of bruises and will be back on the field on Thursday. Mike is still hospitalized with a few injuries, but continues to show improvement. These injuries will keep Mike from being on the field for a little while but should be back on the field helping the T-Birds soon.
The Cluen boys have been a very important part of the Connetquot Football Program for six years now and are very respected by their coaches and teammates. They both work extremely hard, have huge hearts, are tough, and very coachable. They are two-way starters for the team and display outstanding leadership at all times. In their short absence from the team they will be missed greatly, but expect them back soon. Neither of them would not have it any other way.
Thank you to the many people who have asked about them and kept them and their family in their best thoughts. They are outstanding football players and phenomenal people. Get better, Mike and Steve. The T-Birds need you!
