On April 2, 2016, the Tuckahoe Tomahawks hosted Super Bowl Champion and Tomahawk Alum Russell Wilson. The kids and parents left inspired and honored to have been able to attend. Russell Wilson described to the crowd how he started playing football on the very fields that we were sitting on. He inspired us to "get outside", "be competitive", and "school is not easy for everyone, but remember education comes first." Russell challenged not only the kids to get motivated, but also the parents and coaches to encourage these kids to pursue and try multiple activities.
Below is one of the videos from Russell's visit, if you were unable to attend.
The following testimonial was sent to the Board of Directors the week of August 15th by one of our TYA members.
"I have 2 boys that I take to football practice with TYA. They’re not my boys. They’re ones that I know want to play, but their parents have other commitments and weren’t sure they’d be able to get them there every day. Yesterday, we were early to practice and I had a chance to just sit back and watch as everyone was busy getting ready for practice to start. As I was watching, a wonderful thought came to my mind, and I just had to share it with you. This is more than just football. You have an incredible group of people who are there every single day, volunteering their time to spend it with these kids. So many of these kids don’t have constant role models in their lives. We hear about it all the time. But as I watched these people interact with all of those kids and show an interest in their lives both on and off the field, it touched my heart in a very special way. So many of those volunteers were getting out of their cars and not bringing kids of their own. They are there solely to reach out to children who are not theirs. This may be the most over-looked part of your program - Something that so many parents take for granted. But I wanted you to know that I noticed it. I saw the passion these people have in their eyes for what they’re doing. The genuine caring that they have for these kids. They really are making a difference in the lives of these kids. To me, yesterday was a game changer and it made me so happy to be a part of this organization."
Thank you for supporting TYA.
