Coach with Parkinson's inspires on and off the field
Former BC Football Players,

Ricky Brown,  Al Washington, both class of '06, and Paul Zukauskas '01, are three former players that were impacted by Coach Don Horton while he coached at Boston College from 1997-2007. They realize that there are many other players that have beenimpacted by Coach Horton's mentorship and coaching during his time at BC and they are asking for your help.

As a lot of you know, Coach Horton  was diagnosed with Parkinson while coaching at Boston College in 2006. He has been battling this desease for a decade and now, he needs our help. Coach is not doing well and BC is the type of community that comes together when a member of our community needs our help.

The money raised will go directly to Coach Horton's family and help off set costs of medical bills and help support an educational fund for his daughters, Libby and Hadley. 

Thank you for thinking of Coach Horton and supporting a man  that has affected many of our lives.
