My Students

We are requesting assistance with purchasing equipment for the 2020 football season. We are really lucky to coach and instruct incredible kids but financially we struggle every year.

We come from a district where the average annual household income is very low.

We are looking for anyone that would be willing to help our growing program. We will continue to fight for our kids and try to promote the incredible sport of football. Thank you for your time and we appreciate any help you can give.

My Project

This equipment purchase is crucial for our rebuilding program and will make an incredible impact on our kids' self-confidence and motivation. Every week we play teams with larger budgets and schools that have much larger populations.

Our kids do everything we require of them in the off season, school day and community, but are forced to see other schools with superior game day equipment, and as a coaching staff it breaks our hearts.

With your help our student-athletes would not have to wear dirty and torn shirts and gloves that are too small and worn, as they have been passed down from past players.
