“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Psalm 133:1
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr! The chill in the air and cheers in the stands means it’s time for FEAST Football Homecoming. The stands were full of enthusiastic families cheering for the young men of two homeschool teams- FEAST Patriots vs. Austin Royals
Captains Isaac Benitez, Josiah Dagerath, Chase Hill, and Mitchel Sandidge led their team in a victory over Austin Royals. Varsity score was 86 to 40. Mitchel Sandidge scored 5 touchdowns for the win. The Patriot team consists of center Josiah Dagerath, holder Nathaniel Crenwelge, and kicker Daniel Abrams. The Varsity Patriot team successfully completed 100% of the points after touchdown. Ben Jensen made some great tackles!
The JV team also won their games with a score of 28 to 20. All FEAST families were there to cheer them on.
It was all hands-on deck during halftime. Football, Softball, Co-op, and Student Council came together to provide energizing carnival games. Students and parents tried their hand at football bowling and found treats at the Fishers of Men booth. A Student Council member used her artistic skills to paint faces.
Before the Varsity Homecoming game, Former Coach Michael Dagerath was recognized for his 9 years of service from 2008-2017. He implemented a weekly character study based on Scripture to encourage personal growth. He also applied standardized skills and formations in both the middle school and high school program. With an 83-24 record as head coach, he led the middle school team to the Southwest Conference Championship and to the TAIAO State Championship in 2017. Coach Robert Benitez presented him with a signed Patriots helmet. Thank you, Coach!
In a formal ceremony before the Winston Eagles vs FEAST Patriots game the Football Seniors thanked their parents for supporting their journey in sports. Daniel Abrams, Isaac Benitez, Nathaniel Crenwelge, Josiah Dagerath, Ben Jensen, Noah Mast, Gabriel Prochko, Mitchel Sandidge and Team Manager Savannah Perez.

The FEAST Football team is part of the TAIAO organization. What is TAIAO? The Texas Association of Independent Athletic Organizations was formed in 2018 by a group of like-minded Six-Man football coaches that for various reasons, did not “fit” in with existing football or athletic leagues in Texas. For their first year, they had 8 members. In
2014, they expanded to 19 teams, separating into two divisions so smaller organizations would not be at a competitive disadvantage. They’ve grown to over 35 organizations for the 2017/2018 school year. They feel they have a great offering for all types of organizations, Private Schools, Charter Schools, Home School Organizations, and Public Schools. They currently have organizations in all of the major metropolitan areas of Texas: Houston, Dallas Metroplex, Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, Waco, as well as many areas in between.
