9th Ward Bobcats Football Team

Organized by: Luke Strattner

THE STORY:

The Bobcats are a relatively new high school football team located in New Orleans' Ninth Ward. The team's mission is to build men of quality and character through sports and academics, and they need your help. The team needs funds for transportation to games, safe equipment, and a quality experience for these young people.

One young man in the program, Eric, showed his determination frequently walking over five miles to summer practice sessions (through some of New Orleans' roughest neighborhoods in the July heat) because he did not have bus fare. Unfortunately, Eric's situation is typical of many of the team members. And even though it is the off-season, this equipment is needed now, because the kids train year-round.

Just one concussion reducing helmet costs over four hundred dollars. The team is currently playing with hand me down equipment from other schools, most of which is over ten years old. We hope you can help young men like Eric have the sort of safe, fun football experience that other children around this nation enjoy.
