All of the athletes apart of GMSD already work incredibly hard in both their academic and athletic pursuits, but this summer, the Houston High football team has truly gone above and beyond this standard. In addition to their daily, physically-grueling practices, our players have been volunteering all around Germantown.
First, the boys on the team cleaned up old desks, cinder blocks, and trash on the Farmington Elementary campus. Then, they moved on to Dogwood and assissted teachers moving into their new classrooms.
"It was really great to reach out to the community and have people want us around to help." said senior player Sam Haddow of the experience.
Seniors on the team also led a day of camp at the Germantown Farm Park, and taught kids about the environment, animals, and pollution through a variety of games and station.
Head football coach Will Hudgens said this, “I wanted to show them there was something bigger than football, and establish that the legacy of a Houston Mustang football player involves serving the community.”
These athletes exemplify what it means to be both a dedicated player and thoughtful community member. Their efforts both on and off the field make all of us at GMSD incredibly proud, and we sincerely thank them. Great job guys and good luck this season!
