Reagan football kicks off summer with service
One June 21, more than 100 Reagan High School football players put the finishing touches on six homes in the Habitat for Humanity community of Coleman Ridge in southwest Bexar County and helped complete them on schedule for their new owners.
Players landscaped all six homes. They removed countless wheel barrels of rocks from the home sites, leveled the dirt and added topsoil. Next, they laid sod in the front and back yards of the homes and added plants to the flowerbeds. When the yards on the homes were complete, players cleaned the driveways, sidewalks and street to prepare for the home dedications, which took place the following day.
Working alongside the Habitat homeowners, players were joined by Coach David Wetzel, Athletic Coordinator at Reagan High School and Coaches John Baskin, Nelson Farris, John Hamilton and 21 parent volunteers.
Coach Wetzel commented, “Reagan Football has a tradition of volunteering in the community during the summer. These experiences provide players the opportunity to develop into young men who will be leaders and make a difference in their community.”
Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, Inc. (HFHSA) is a non-profit housing organization working in partnership with low-income families to build simple, decent and affordable houses.
The Reagan Football Team’s next service project is at the San Antonio Food Bank. Way to make a difference, Rattlers!
