Help Save Harding High’s Freshmen Football Program



Dear Friends:

Due to Budget cuts across Bridgeport Public Schools, the freshmen football program has been cut for a second year and the equipment budget is still running at the bare minimum.

However, there is HOPE! With an emphasis on safety we have been able to reach out to our contacts and negotiate great pricing on a 7 man sled, tackling tubes, and watering stations. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to ensure the players have the equipment they need to be safe while playing a game they love. This will also save our freshman football program and allow them to have a full schedule with transportation included.

The Harding Football Team provides a fantastic positive outlet for young men in the community. Our coaching staff is dedicated to helping these young men succeed on and off the field. We participate in and organize community service events to instill the principle of giving back and to encourage community involvement. A unique aspect of Harding Football is our participation in a program called Presidential Development. This program stresses strength and conditioning, goal setting, time management and involves our young men learning interview and networking skills to prepare them for college or postsecondary training. Classes on social media and email etiquette are also given to prepare the student athletes for college interviews and recruiting visits. We are committed to helping our student athletes succeed in life and hope you find it in your heart to help us along this journey.
This is a call to action! Please help these young men achieve greatness both on and off the field.
