BREMEN, Ala. (WIAT) — Congratulations to the Cold Springs football team. They’re this week’s One Team at a Time.
Before they can take the field as Cold Springs Eagles, they have to start in the youth leagues. Their coach says it’s a learning experience, starting with the basics, adding in positive reinforcement to help in the long run.
In the never ending battle of player safety in football, the Cold Springs Youth League was in dire need of new shoulder pads to keep the young players safe
“We have not had shoulder pads in many years and some of our shoulder pads were probably 30 years old. They were in bad shape,” their coach explained.
So, CBS42 and Hibbett Sports stepped up to help, with $1,000 worth of new gear.
