Welcome to My Rally Campaign
Hello, My name is Stephon White and I am the owner of the NTX Eagles Football Organization. We are new proud members of the Crossroads Amateur Football League in Texas. Our goal as a new franchise is to raise enough money to have a successful season not just for me but for these players and staff that we will have. It is very important to make sure that the players have a awesome experience playing for a first class minor league organization, so that in the future, more and more players will want to come and play for a team that take care of their own. Our players will range from 20 to 40 yrs of age and my sole purpose for starting this franchise is to give back and help guys that were either overlooked trying to play professionally or guys that didn't quite make it in college or high school and still have that fire to play for the love of the game and to help guys move on to higher levels of football. Our goal is to raise 10,000 dollars or more to have new equipment for our players, cost of team and league fees, paying for a place to play and giving the community nice entertainment.
Why I'm Raising Funds
The NTX Eagles are raising funds to help with the cost of uniforms, equipment for practices and games, the cost to rent our field to play on for the season and league fees. The things that we buy for our organization will be posted online so that everyone can see where their donations went towards, for example if we bought new football's, we would post it to our team page on Facebook with a thank you to everyone who contributed towards our team because it's very important to make sure that we thank the ones who really made it possible for our team players to continue to live out their dreams.
How I Got Here
I coach at Carrollton Prince of Peace Christian School in Texas and i was thinking one day how it would be cool to own my own team and help players get a second chance to play in front of family and friends. I knew a guy named Tom Lewis and we had talked about going in together and starting a minor league team and it was very very frustrating because we didn't have the funds to get it all going. Tom and myself lost contact with each other for awhile and I went to coach arena football with a new start up team in Abilene Texas. Long story short, that team fell through due to bad ownership and i felt so horrible for the guys on that team because they just wanted to play football and do it in front of family and friends. So I dug deep and said to myself I am going to give these players a team where they can come play and enjoy playing on a team that they can call home! So that's where I'm at today, trying to get together this team for players that can continue the game they love.
Thus is the emotional part of this because I have so many people to thank and let me first start out with my Mother, Doris Tarrant. Words can't even add up to what this lady has done for me! I couldn't even pay her back in the next lifetime because she's been there for me till this day and i love you much Mom. Thank you to Tom Lewis and all my true friends for believing in me when a lot of people didn't and last but never least thank you to everyone who will somehow contribute even if it's a prayer, you contributed because nothing is more powerful than prayer
