Saturday Evening, March 24 was AMAZING! I had the honor and the privilege to not only be able to attend the San Diego Enforcers Vs. Chicago Blaze Football game, I was also able to be a part of it! Since The Enforcers are playing for the local chapter of United Cerebral Palsy my little buddy 6 yr old Kelly & I were invited out to do the coin toss and we were honorary captains!
Chicago was visiting so they got to call. They called tails Kelly told me when to toss, I tossed it over my shoulder and it was…… Tails! Chicago’s Ball!
I would also like to take a moment to say this game was played in loving memory of Coach Frank Yancey who passed away suddenly the day after Enforcers mini camp. Frank Yancey worked for SDPD for many years, he was the coach at Valhalla High which he loved very much. At his memorial service he had 10 Jersey’s draped over his casket representing a team he either coached or play for. One of the teams he played for was the Enforcers, Mr. Yancey’s Enforcers Jersey # 63 was retired last night in a beautiful tribute.
We also were able to raise a lot of money during the 50-50 raffle and Kimberly King also got a lot of people to buy tickets for the signed Giants Helmet! My parents and my aunts all bought tickets, My dad was only 2 numbers away from winning the Giants Helmet! Ugh!
I do have to say my favorite moment was wheeling out on the field with Kimberly & her husband David at the end of the game! The score was 14- 13….. ENFORCERS WIN!!!!!! I was brought into the end of the game huddle and I was honored again to be asked to give the end of the game Inspirational Speech to both Teams! Just for the record the Enforcers are now 2-0!!!!!
I have to take a moment to say a special thanks to everyone at the San Diego Enforcers! The great folks at UCP San Diego! Every single team member of Chicago Blaze they were wonderful! The Referee’s were extremely helpful for the coin flip. Mr. Rick Lakin photographed the pre-game & coin flip pictures. Enforcers QB, , JJ Carrell, and all the other teammates took time for photographs. Thanks to the Enforcers Cheerleaders and to Kimberly King for the night time photos.
Lastly Dave King, thank you for making me feel like a queen! This will be a night I’ll remember FOREVER! Look up in the stands at home games, you haven’t seen the last of me and my family!
