Football Captains from the Downriver Area celebrate Victory Day @ Trenton High School in Michigan.
Proud that Cody Ratcliffe from Flat Rock High School in Michigan participated in todays event. Go Rams! @cody4ratiffe #cody4ratcliffe
Victory Day @ Trenton High School in Michigan holds its 3rd annual event for cognitively and physically impaired children. They will step out onto the high school football field to participate in a simulated football game complete with uniforms, active scoreboard and announcer.
Each child will be partnered with a football player or cheerleader who will serve as their mentor for the day, showing them how to either run for a touchdown or cheer for the hometeam.
All special needs kids will receive football — and a medal for participating in the event. Football players will also get a mini-football and cheerleaders get to take home pom-poms.
Lloyd Carr, former head football coach at the University of Michigan, has agreed to lend his celebrity to the event for the second straight year by posing for photos with the children and local sponsors.
