March 6th, A Day to Celebrate for the Coffman Family

Today has been a very exciting day in the Coffman Family lives.  Our oldest grandson, Wyatt Coffman signed his letter of intent to play college football at Central Methodist University.  Makes his Nana's heart very happy.  Papa is very proud of him too.  The real kicker is Wyatt's Mom and Dad, Ryan and Mandy celebrated their' 20th wedding anniversary today.  Have I ever told you that my son has impeccable taste in women?  Mandy is a Godly woman that would make any mother- in- law very proud.  I am very proud of my Ryan and Mandy for raising Wyatt up to work hard to reach his goals.  They have given him a solid foundation for his life.

Below is the write up in the paper.

"Wyatt Coffman became the second Trenton High School football player this year to officially sign to play college football as he signed a national letter of intent Wednesday morning in the THS commons. Coffman inked a national letter to join the football program at Central Methodist University in Fayette.
During his senior season with the Bulldogs, Coffman collected 58 tackles, the third most on the team, and had a team-high 11 tackles for loss. On the offensive side of the ball, Coffman helped pave the way for the Bulldog running backs, who combined for over 2,000 yards and 22 touchdowns on the year.
Coffman was twice named Trenton’s Defensive Player of the Week in 2012 and was the team’s Offensive Lineman of the Week on three occasions. He also earned all-district honors as an offensive lineman from the media and all-district honors as a defensive lineman from the coaches. Coffman was also honored as Trenton’s Outstanding Offensive Lineman of the Year at the annual awards banquet.
“First off, physically he is really gifted,” Trenton Head Football Coach Wes Croy said. “He has put in a lot of work in the weight room and a lot of work in the summertime. He went to a lot of different camps and combines trying to improve himself and it has paid off. He is going to have the opportunity to play college football and I think he has the opportunity to excel at the next level. Physically, his tools relate really well to Central Methodist. I think his future is bright and I am excited that he is going to a good program with good coaches. I’m really proud of him and happy for him.”
Coffman is the son of Ryan and Mandy Coffman of Trenton and will enroll at Central Methodist this fall. He joins Dillon Triplet, who signed with Graceland, as senior members of the Bulldog football program who will move on to the next level this fall."

We are very blessed to have such a wonderful family.  Our oldest and only granddaughter, Alexis turned 14 yesterday and she is like a ray of sunshine for us.  She is also very talented, plays her Chelo, smart, and beautiful inside and out.  Then we have her little brother, Brandon, a beautiful boy and he is such a joy...we just don't get to see him often enough but I know Papa and I will be attending some football games that will star Brandon.  He is a real go getter.  We can't leave out the youngest grandson, Evan.  He is a real handsome and smart guy too.  He covers the ground and I bet he will play some ball too.  Our grandchildren makes our hearts sing and each of them give us some much joy.  We love our Daughter in law and our two Son-in-laws and feel like they complete our family.
Danny and I pray everyday for our family and God has blessed us over and over.  I think  Grandma and Grandpa Coffman and Grandpa Bagley are beaming today!
