Line Of Scrimmage

On Friday nights, the Fayetteville–Manlius gridiron is littered with muddy cleats, sweaty helmets, bloody mouth guards and empty Gatorade bottles. The coaches and players of the FM Hornets leave everything they have on the field — all for another 10 yards. 

The youth, spirit and love for the game in the eyes of these young men inspired me to embed myself with them during their 2018 season, an experience I am grateful for.
