Lawrence Co. Youth League President Tom Frazier
“… To say the least, the future of LC football and cheer is bright! This was arguably the best season for Lawrence county youth football in our history. Our A team went though a lot of adversity and will be competing for a league championship.
“…All of our teams have been extremely competitive. We were 8 points from having 3 teams in the turf bowl. We were able to give out more than 20 cheer and football scholarships for children who could not afford to pay for registration.
“…Both C and B teams won conference championships. Our cheerleaders were grand champions. We were able to develop a sponsorship program where local businesses could easily donate money to our cause. Our financial situation allowed us to assist Martin County purchase equipment for their children. We have also been key in revitalizing the Tristate Football League.
“…Just overall, a wonderful season. I am blessed to have such wonderful children, parents, board members, and coaches.”
