GADSDEN, Ala. (WIAT) — It’s never easy to start a football program from scratch, but that’s what Larameka Wynn is doing with the Gadsden Saints in East Alabama.
“You need the right equipment, safe equipment,” Wynn said. “It helps the kids build up a lot of self-esteem about themselves.”
To help the Saints get going, CBS 42 and Hibbett Sports provided them with $1,000 in equipment to be used by the program and gave them the distinction of being this week’s One Team at a Time. Shoulder pads, practice jerseys, and footballs made up most of the things the Saints will use to prepare for their first ever game.
“This is a big blessing to our team,” Wynn said. “We are grateful and thankful. The Gadsden Saints are a team that’s gonna be doing this for many years to come.”
