Falcon Bluffs will play your 7th grade girls basketball team this afternoon. Your team has many good shooters, however, they are also trash talkers. The language is atrocious and I hope someone can explain to the team that the language they use does not reflect well on O'connell. I'm a concerned grand-parent
