Mr. DeVellis from Stamford CT is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Football Project

Help me give my students an opportunity to improve their skills on the field with practice pinnies, and training aids. Also, help keep our athletes healthy and hydrated with brand new coolers and bottles to call our own.

My Students

Our student athletes come from diverse backgrounds in order to compete and participate in a game that they all share a passion for. Their tireless work in the classroom and on the football field should not, and do not, go unnoticed by those around the program.

Please help in building our program!

With a bright future ahead, we are preparing our young men for not only competitive football games, but also for life beyond football. Thank you in advance! EARN IT

My Project

Our student athletes will have access to brand new equipment, which we have lacked in the past. Our SKLZ Quickster Net and Great Catch Football Receiver's Training Aids will help our offense compete at the highest level. Having pinnies for our players will help to seamlessly transition throughout practice as we have many players that need to move quickly from offense to defense.

Be a part of our program's rise!

Your donation will help us start with a fresh slate of practice equipment as game day essentials for our entire team. Getting personal Gatorade coolers and water bottles for our team will help our program continue to grow. Helping our student-athletes succeed and compete in a premier conference is our number one goal. Join the movement today! Thank you.
