My Students

"Don't walk through life just playing football, Don't walk through life just being an athlete, Athletics will fade. Make an impact on someones life, that's the ultimate vision, that's the ultimate goal - bottom line."- Ray Lewis

Our students work extremely hard and many do not have positive role models in their lives.

While these Fatheads won't give them everything they need, they will be reminders of how with hard work and dedication, you can reach your goals. Our kids are smart, bright, funny and energetic group of kids who love to be active. They are from a small rural town in South Alabama. They love playing sports both inside and out. Many come from hard working family's as well as low income ones. I wouldn't want to leave this school for anything.

My Project

We will be able to teach the kids at an early age to throw the football correctly. Once the students know how to throw we will be able to see their confidence grow while playing football and inside the classroom. We will use the 25 footballs to give the students shorter lines and more opportunity to learn.

Making friends is a tough thing to do.

Sports is a good way to get to know someone and become friends. Many of my friends I still talk to today I have met through sports when I was younger. I hope to get more students involved in sports and create a positive classroom environment at the same time.
