The roaring cheers you heard in Buckhead last night were coming from the Pee Wee field.  The HIES Golden Bears and Pace Knights faced each other as the only two undefeated Pee Wee teams in one of this week’s PINK OUT games.  The game was focused on raising Breast Cancer Awareness and players celebrated by wearing pink arm bands, shoe laces, socks and shirts.  The stands were decorated with pink balloons and fans sporting pink.  HIES and Pace Varsity and junior varsity football players, cheerleaders and mascot attended cheering on their prospective teams.  The 7-8 years old players loved having their support.  The Knights pulled it out 13-7.  Both teams played hard, showed great sportsmanship and left with memories that will last a life time.  Click for Golden Bears photo.

“I remember it like it was yesterday!”

Yes, we have all said it at sometime of our life and I am sure we all will say it many more times in the future. Well, I distinctly remember my oldest son on his first day of NYO Football tryouts when he was just 7 years old. It had already been a long day for our family and we were running late! (So late, that we were actually the last family to tryout that day.) Stress levels were high on the ride to the park knowing that we might miss tryouts altogether and that we had just left the oncologists office as my wife was in the midst of her battle with breast cancer. She was weak and nauseous, my son was tired and anxious, and I was doing everything to get him to the park in mental football fashion. My mental “fashion” would have to wait.

At NYO, we have always been very engaged in our community, and we are blessed to have so many dedicated volunteers who make this happen. One such example that embodies a real sense of community is the annual “Pink Out” PeeWee football game. Started in 2012 by the story of the O’Kelley family, this remarkable event has brought together kids and adults of all ages, from the 7 and 8 year old Pee-Wees to the high school varsity players and cheerleaders, all while raising awareness for breast cancer. With plans to expand the game to a “Pink Out” week and include more high schools and PeeWee teams, don’t miss this year’s event! If you haven’t already signed-up, registration is still open.

A few years ago, NYO Partnered up with Twisted Taco and Big Frog T-shirt Company to start a Player of the Week Program. The idea is for a child who has worked extra hard during the season to get that special recognition… that extra “atta boy” from his coaches and recognition from his teammates.

And every once in awhile, we get a coach who goes out of his way to recognize a child. I received a letter from one such coach last week highlighting why he chose the player he did for Player of the Week. Click headline or picture to read more ...
