The National Football Foundation looks to clean up the image of football players by teaching Smart Skills and the importance of giving back to your community through its Play It Smart program.
The National Football Foundation sponsors Clover Park High School as one of two of their Play It Smart football academic programs in the State of Washington. Part of the Play It Smart program is teaching about giving back and participating in community service. CPHS Play It Smart has partnered with the Play It Smart program at Sam Houston Math, Science and Technology Center to help in their time of distress after hurricane Ike.
Working with the Clover Park HS Associated Student Body the football players will go into the community to sell tickets to this Friday nights home game attendees against White River High School. After the first 1,200 $6 tickets are sold $2 from every additional ticket will go to Sam Houston‚Äôs football program to help in their time of need. Pam Williams Academic Coach from Sam Houston said ‚Äúwe are so thankful that you guys are even thinking of us, we just got our power back on and we felt we were alone. You just don‚Äôt know how this makes us feel.‚Äù
Jordan Babineaux of the Seattle Seahawks will also donate 2 tickets to a Seahawk home game to be raffled off by the Warrior Booster Club for additional funds. Our goal is to raise $4,000 to help their program.
Play It Smart; our mission is to help student-athletes take responsibility for their futures through lessons learned on the playing field, in the classroom and in service to others.
