Sonic in Greenwood donated 500+ Cherry Limeade / Slushy coupons to the 6th Grade White Pittbulls Offensive and Defensive Lines. When the team scores a touchdown, the line receives a coupon!
“Originally our ask was to get something to praise our lineman (our unsung heroes) after touchdowns,” shared one Bulldog parent. “To give something to those boys who make a touchdown possible, but never get to feel that joy or excitement of running into or catching a ball in the endzone! This year the Management at sonic gave over our ask, which will allow us to not only praise and reward our offensive line but will give us a way to reward other big moments like fumbles, interceptions and sacks, things like that!”
The young Trench Gang warriors’ recognition doesn’t stop there as they were treated to breakfast at Waffle House as well. Coach Dale Gaines said: “The lineman breakfast is to reward them for all their hard work leading up to tonight’s game and to let them know we see them, we know its harder for those big boys to go through the same work as the little guys but they do every practice! Then on game day, we don’t win if they aren’t there. They may not get their names called on touchdowns or big plays, but the Coaches and our boys know it starts with the line.”
