This was an amazing event. I was one of the HS coaches on the field. Not just from a football aspect, but from an ispirational aspect. David gave many of these young players some hope that may have escaped them their entire lives. I saw how these players reacted to him, and many of them knew facts about him that only devotes fans would know. I have know him since he was a the age ofmany of these young players and he has remained humble and ginuine. When many of the players in the league are in the news for doing idiotic things, this young man sponsered a camp for 300 children for free. And Willie Parker even made a camoeo. This was AWESOME with a capitol A baby. Keep up the good work David. Coach Holland
