My Students

My players come from challenging environments where aggression is often the answer to many problems. Many come from high crime and poverty-stricken areas. A lot of our students have issues related to anger and disrespect. Some of them have trouble interacting appropriately with one another, teachers, and administrators. These students have sometimes gone through some type of trauma, a divorce, or been the victims of abuse or neglect. Our district is 100% free lunch for all students. Basic necessities are not often a given. They often lack consistent parental support. Some are doing the best they can. Sports is where some of the kids get the chance to be successful. It teaches patience and determination. They get the support that they often are lacking. Participating in sports helps some students get into college and develop skills that will help them later in life. Some of my students often feel as if no one notices them or acknowledges their positive behavior.

My Project

Coming from a high poverty, low-income school district, it can be difficult to get the proper hydration by having a stock tank to keep football players from being overheated and snacks for our student-athletes. With your donations, these football stars can up their game by having the right hydration and snack supplies to help them practice and reach their peak performance. Having proper energy and technique is difficult without the right hydration and food supplements due to a water crisis in our town. Our school district is dismissing school an hour later, as a result, my players come to practice later and are in need of healthy snack options and hydration.

Our student-athletes can practice correctly and then emit those same techniques into game play for the big W if they have energy and appropriate resources.

When students can practice properly, be hydrated and have a healthy snack, they will not only feel more confident but know what they are doing when they go into the real game.
