INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts, in partnership with the NFL Foundation’s and nonprofit initiative True Impact Football, will sponsor 10 under-sourced Indiana high school football programs.
As part of the program, the teams will get access to new coaching education, player development, and fundraising resources.
“We are proud to be a part of this effort to address the challenges under-resourced football programs in Indiana face,” said Mike Prior, Colts Youth Football Commissioner. “We hope these funds will grow these football programs, as well as provide new resources for our student-athletes and coaches to help make the game more fun, safe, and accessible.”
The programs sponsored by the Colts include:
- Anderson High School (Anderson)
- Caston Jr. – Sr. High School (Rochester)
- Crispus Attucks High School (Indy)
- Decatur Central High School (Indy)
- George Washington Community High School (Indy)
- Seymour High School (Seymour)
- Southport High School (Southport)
- Speedway High School (Speedway)
- Washington High School (South Bend)
- Winamac High School (Winamac)
Each school will receive unlimited access to free resources from True Impact’s football partners, including Glazier Clinics coaching clinics and its online coach learning platform; Lead ‘Em Up leadership and team captain’s courses; and fundraising tools through Booster Club Academy. Each football program may also include its local youth football programs, such as elementary or middle school teams, in these activities.
“We believe every player, team, and community deserves a great football coach,” said Josh Peterson of True Impact Football. “We’re convinced supporting football coaches in these under-served schools will go a long way in impacting not only the players but the broader communities as well.”
