The Stanwood Youth Football Bantams need your help.
Stanwood’s team of 12-year-olds qualified for the Pro Football Hall of Fame National Youth Championships, which take place on Dec. 14-17 in Canton, Ohio. The team earned that honor based on its performance at the Bay Area Regionals last weekend in Santa Rosa, California.
However, the team needs to raise more funds in order to pay the expenses for a second lengthy trip in the span of two weeks. Therefore, the team fundraising in an effort to participate at nationals.
