The 2019 high school football season as a tremendous success. The funds raised by the doubleheader will serve the community for the other 51 weeks of the year. Men’s Huddle International underwrote the event and will expand their work in the community, starting with Lake Taylor, Maury, Phoebus and Bethel High Schools. MHI leads programs in the public schools that include mentoring, character building and leadership. Ultimately, the goal is to enable young people to become successful adults, both in the classroom and in life. We will highlight more of the activities of Men’s Huddle International as we get closer to the event. Mark your calendars now for the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. That’s Saturday, August 31 at Darling Stadium in Hampton.
