Footballs for High School and Jr. High Football Programs

My students need new footballs so that we can run multiple drills at a time and not have to wait for everyone to share footballs.

My Students

The students whom this will benefit will be numerous kids through our High School and Jr. High programs. By donating you will be giving them the opportunity to progress in the sport.

Our students are hard-working kids that really show passion for all sports.

We run low on funds for our athletic programs and this would be a huge help to the kids. The students are some of the hardest working kids whom I have been around. The school is low on funding for sports and the kids deserve to have nice equipment to use.

My Project

The students would be using the footballs in practice to run different drills at the same time. As of now we only have about 3 decent footballs in each of our programs. This makes it hard to break up and run drills in different spots. If the Quarterbacks are throwing to receivers then the other groups don't even get to have a football for their drills. Lots of the time players have to wait to get a football before they have the chance to participate in the drill.

Donations to this project will help the students have the opportunities to learn and participate in a more efficient manner in practice.

More footballs would make it so that the entire team can run drills and maximize the learning opportunities for each player.
