Scoring for a Reason

Wade Mercille, Reporter

On October 30 the Potosi Trojans football team kicked off the first round of districts on their home turf against the Salem Tigers. Now this wasn’t just a regular game. In light of October being breast cancer awareness month, both teams and even the community in the stands were showing their support by wearing pink. 


In addition to that Belgrade State Bank, Washington County Farm Supply, and Dent County Farm supply pledged that they would give $200 for every touchdown score by the end of the night to help with this unfortunate disease. 


This caused players to think more about this game than others. Senior quarterback Andrew Coleman said, “It gave us a purpose to try our best to score. To know that we had control of how much was donated really made us feel as if we were helping out in some way or another.”


By the end of the game $1000 was donated to cancer foundations to help further research. Senior linebacker Devon Marler said, “Even though we ended our season with a loss it felt good knowing that our last game helped to raise money for a good cause.”
