What We Do


Everything I have in my life is from football, playing it, coaching it, talking about it on TV and calling games over the radio. To give back to a sport that has given me everything that was a very easy decision. I started HOPE Through Football to give players here in the U.S and Internationally the same opportunity to live a dream and to believe in who they are like I had. Football can teach us so much about ourselves and it gives players the opportunity to build their confidence and show how special they are and how they can accomplish anything they put their minds to! “I Can I Will” needs to become their mindset for life.
