thankyouA Note of Thanks

I would like to thank my Averett family for the cards, flowers, food and visits after the passing of my father. Every hug, email, card or phone call meant much more than I can ever express. It was a great comfort knowing how blessed I am to work for this organization.

Two of our football coaches – Head Coach Cleive Adams and Recruiting Coordinator/Offensive Line Coach Patrick Henry – are headed to the slammer. Not to worry, it’s for a good cause. They are raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and will become “MDA Jailbirds” on July 14. The MDA is dedicated to curing conditions such as muscular dystrophy or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. To learn how to help Cleive and Patrick get out of jail, click here.
