A Touchdown for Both Teams

Last week, our JV football team had the privilege to participate in one of those football games that is so special, the memories made on the field transcend the numbers on the scoreboard.

It’s a long story, but it is so beautiful, we hope you will take the time to read the article that was published in the Ledger-Enquirer.  It is well worth the time.

We also could not be prouder of our team and of our JV football coach, Hunter Chapman, for allowing our students to be involved in such a memorable opportunity. He certainly did not have to participate, but by choosing to do so, he allowed our students to be a part of blessing another student in such a profound way, to be part of something greater than just another football game. As a mom of a player on the JV football team, I cannot thank you enough.

Now go read the full story!
