OA comments to parents at the banquet:

"Congratulations on raising the class of youth anywhere - of students, of athletes, and of people.  Their discipline, maturity, respect, and humility is the by-product of your love, support, and sacrifice.  You have raised and created young men and women who have profoundly impacted our team, their peers, and the community, and they will undoubtedly influence future generations and the world.  You are the silent heroes in this success story and the “we” in “we did it”."
