Crestview Middle School Football
I am the head coach of a middle school that is 80% free and reduced. This means that most of my athletes cant afford anything extra. We are a combined 23-3 in the last three years. Running a football program costs a lot of money. We charge the players $40 to play each year and all that covers is the cost of feeding them before each game we play. We need to replace our team uniforms. The average costs of a uniform that will last through a few seasons is around $60. We have any where from 60-90 players on the team each year. It costs upwards of $10000 to replace home and away. I chose $12000 for an amount because that would allow us to replace our jerseys and be able to replace a few of our older helmets with newer ones that are safer. For us to replace our uniforms before the next season the uniforms have to be ordered before the end of May. So the money need to be here in May. My players are some of the best kids you will be around. These players are like sons to me and I will do anything to help them. Any thing you donate is greatly appreciated.+ Read More
Got a few more donors, and the boys really appreciate them. If you have a few extra dollars, we still have a long way to go to reach our goal. Thanks for the help and spread this information around so it can reach as many people as possible.
My players keep asking me how the account is going. They looked very disheartened when I told them we only had one donation. Please support these young men.
I spoke with my team yesterday and told them what I was doing. They were really excited. I hope by Monday I can tell them we are moving towards a goal. Please support the Chargers. They are an amazing group of boys who deserve everything.
