What is Victory Day?
Victory Day is an event set up for individuals with cognitive and physical impairment to have an opportunity to play football or cheer and have their "moment in the sun."
Each individual will be partnered up with a GRC football player or cheerleader who will serve as their mentor for the day. They will wear a Victory Day jersey or hold cheer pom poms and line up on the 50 yard line with their mentor. The national anthem will then be played by the Band. After, our PA announcer will introduce each child as they run through a tunnel formed by the band into the end zone. Parents will be seated in the end zone to take pictures as they run through the tunnel. There will be a mock coin toss before the game.
A mock defense will be set up by our JV football team. Each child will have an opportunity to run or catch a pass for a touchdown with play-by-play announcing. After the game, each child will be presented with a medal to commemorate their victory. The Eagle Sports Booster will serve hot dogs and drinks for the families after the event. A Photographer will also be available to take pictures of the event for each child. Families are also invited to attend the GRC Football game on the night before.
