Bigcatdaddy, WHYUS and I have discussed putting together a "scholarship" fund for deserving young football players to attend one of the local football camps in the area. I am personally willing to completely fund one young man to go. It would be nice if we can make it three or four spots. I am soliciting other participants who may want to get involved. It isn't as easy as simply collecting money. There are things to consider such as how we find candidates and how we choose them. What method do we use to collect donations? Do we consider things such as accomodations? I think it would be a good thing to send a young man from each of our three division opponents to their local camp as well as one from our area. Others may disagree. IMO this gesture should transcend team loyalty. It is about these young men and how we can give someone who due to finances wouldn't have a chance to have an experience like this without the help we qas a group could give them.. Since spring is getting close we need to get started so we can do a good job. I would like to set up a meeting sometime in the next month or so we can discuss it over a burger and a beer but perhaps the discussion should start here. So please post your comments and or questions and we can begin. This is going to happen if I have to do it myself but the more the merrier and the more deserving young men can benefit.
