Battle Creek Central Football - The Bearcats will be playing in honor of a player.
Clarenceville Football - At Clarenceville the cause that moves us deeply is the battle against ALS. We support this cause because a legend of Clarenceville was diagnosed with this illness a few years ago. Tim Shaw, a 7 year veteran of the NFL, is that legend and he is currently battling ALS and continues to be a beacon for our school district. As Tim continues to battle ALS, he still supports Clarenceville and the families of the school district. For example, Tim runs football camp that he sponsors and is free to students of the district. This event helps many students throughout the community and is another prime example of Tim giving back to his community. Tim and his family have also started the Shaw Family Educator Award which gives back to dedicated educators in Clarenceville. This past season the stadium at Clarernceville was rededicated to Tim and his family, for all that they have done for the district. The name Shaw Stadium is proudly displayed as a thank you to Tim for his dedication and commitment to Clarenceville.
With that being said we would like to continue to support Tim and his family as he continues to fight for a cure for ALS. Being selected as a "Cause Jersey" winner will help us continue to spread the word and help us show our thanks to Tim Shaw and his family!
Grand Haven Wrestling - Is currently thinking about what cause dual we would like to do!
Holland Football - We are trying to start a BE NICE game to bring awareness to mental health/suicide/bullying issues.
Livonia Franklin Wrestling - Dual raising money for Livonia Hospice.
Maple Valley Football (Vermontville) - We would like to do do a Parkinsons awareness game for our football team. Our head coach's brother has Parkinsons so we would like to do this for him.
South Putnam Baseball and Softball - Fighting Type 1 Diabetes (KT1D). Providing education and support for the condition. Both our baseball and softball teams will do this on the same night.
Strike Out Type 1 Diabetes (KT1D).
Sparta Football - Would love to acknowledge those we have in our community with special needs and those who work with them.
Trinity Football - This will be a football jersey. We will be dedicating this Jersey to one of our players named Tyler Bova, who is a defensive back and receiver for our Trinity High School Football team. As of last week Tyler lost his Father, Mother, and 11 year old brother in a car accident while on vacation. At the moment Tyler is in critical condition and is fighting for his life. We are praying and believing that Tyler is going to pull through. Tyler was originally given a 20 percent chance to live and each day that goes by he is defying the odds. He has had multiple surgeries and is continuing to fight and recover. This is not shocking to any of his family, coaches, or friends because he has always had a tremendous amount of fight. Tyler embodies everything good about a high school athlete. His work ethic and determination to get better is second to none. He is a coaches dream and does all of the little things right. His attitude, intensity, and effort is contagious and he leads by example. He gives every area of his life 100 percent. We would love to be able to honor Tyler with these new jerseys and reveal the jerseys at a fundraiser game to help Tyler's family with the major expenses coming their way. Our Community has rallied around Tyler in this tough time and it would be very special to be able to dedicate a new team uniform in Tyler's name.
