My Students

Our football and track and field teams are a hard-working group of students both inside the classroom and on the field. These student-athletes hold themselves to a higher standard and seek to promote team-based unity.

“The difference between try and triumph is a little umph”- Melvin Phillips.

They continually strive to do their best during practice and on the field during games or at competitions, yet they don't have all the necessary equipment to be successful. This equipment will help provide the for all of our athletic teams to reach their goals and achieve their dreams in high school sports. They work hard, train hard, and play hard to achieve greatness. Yet to be even greater, they need this equipment to help push them to that next level. With the requested equipment this team will have what they need. We all want our students to be successful in the classroom, but we also want them to be successful in what they do to represent our schools outside the classroom. This project will do just that. By helping support our team, you will be supporting an amazing group of student-athletes.

My Project

Currently, the football team along with the track and field teams do not have weighted vests. These vests will help them to improve in many areas of physical fitness such as speed, and strength. These vests will allow for the teams to train in ways they have not been able to before. As one of the smallest Division 1A schools in the State, our dedication in the weight room and focus during practice will be what carries us to victory as we compete against schools that have a larger student body to choose from. We are also requesting sweatbands for personal comfort during these workout sessions along with wall balls for strength and speed training.
