Challenger Football, under the auspices of the West U Little League, has kicked off its 10th season with a strong turnout at St. Thomas High School and a rewarding time for athletes and volunteers.
The Challenger program encompasses football and baseball for boys and girls ages 5 through the final year of high school or the age of 22, whichever comes first.
The program affords participants to become athletes, despite their limitations and volunteers a unique opportunity to help their “buddies” realize their potential.
