My students need these footballs because we are starting a second team to get more players experience, and playing time. Therefore we need these Wilson GST TDY Youth Footballs to ensure everyone gets to practice.
My football players come from very diverse socioeconomic backgrounds here in the upstate of South Carolina, drawing from the communities of Six Mile, Central, and Clemson.
Our diversity is what makes our group so special.
We may have best friends where one comes from a single-family home with a history of drugs in the home and another whose family is well off financially and has two college-educated parents.
I call this group my family and tell them to treat each other as brothers. I truly feel that these boys can and will lean on each other as brothers in the future. I try to provide these players with a family atmosphere that they may not get elsewhere.
Without these footballs we will have many players who either won't get adequate playing time or practice experience, this could lead to fewer individuals wanting to play in the future. Neither of which are scenarios that we want to happen.
These footballs would allow both of our teams to compete at the same time, without having to share the footballs or sit by and watch until one group is done with them.
We hope that our project will become funded so that we have the flexibility to practice based on needs rather than who has the footballs at that time.
Good teams have a set of footballs that are used for practice only, but we've been practicing and playing with the same footballs for a number of years and need these footballs greatly. Giving us these footballs allows our players to compete on a more even playing field that some of our opponents already have.
