My Students

Our campus is a building that houses seven high schools in one building. Our campus houses eleven different varsity teams serving over 250 student athletes.

Our students are generally from low-socioeconomic neighborhoods in all five boroughs.

They typically cannot afford some of the things that are necessary to compete at a high level. I coach the co-ed varsity wrestling team and the girls flag football team. Our students come from all over the city and some spend a little more than an hour to get to school.

As previously stated, most of our girls come from low socioeconomic neighborhoods and can barely afford a decent pair of cleats, let alone other athletic equipment. Still, with determination, strong will and countless hours on the sport they have grown to love, they find a way to win in the classroom, the wrestling mat and the football field.

My Project

I am coming to ask for 30 footballs so I can give each individual student their own football. Our team is, unfortunately, missing an entire season due to COVID-19, so what I want to do is give each of them their own ball so they can safely practice honing their football skills all while maintaining social distance.

These footballs will help bring them to the next level of play and give them some hope as we get through our current pandemic.

I will hand deliver each student their own football with your help! Thank you!
