The Woodrow Wilson High School football team requests your help. The NFL will match up to $5,000 of funds raised by Woodrow, which will go to the purchase of new helmets. Woodrow says studies show the new protective helmets are the better for preventing concussions. By raising the maximum amount of funds and the League match (to equal $10,000), Woodrow can buy enough new helmets that every varsity player will receive one. Eventually the helmets will be passed down to J.V., freshman, and J. L. Long Middle School. Also, all funds raised will be tax deductible through the WW Athletic Booster Club. Make checks out to WW Athletic Boosters care of WWHS, 100 S. Glasgow, Dallas, 75214. All funds raised will go directly to the NFL Helmet Program. Woodrow are on a limited time basis; once the allotted NFL funds dry up, the match is over. Heisman Trophy winner and Woodrow alum Tim Brown has agreed to be Woodrow’s NFL player contact, but first they must raise the necessary funds.
