Graceville football has blessing of the helmets and pom poms

Graceville football has blessing of the helmets and pom poms

What better way to welcome the new season than with a ‘Blessing of the helmets and pom poms”.  That’s exactly what Graceville’s new head football coach and athletic director Tommy Roberts orchestrated this past Sunday afternoon. Parents and fans came into the Tiger gym with helmets and pom poms lining the bleachers normally filled with basketball fans. One by one, they went to each helmet and pom pom, stopping sometimes momentarily and sometimes longer to pray over the items. Prayers were silent and could have been for anything but the feedback I received was for a safe and injury free season. 

Coach Roberts is hopeful this will become not only an annual event but one that is expected and welcomed by the community and will grow in numbers yearly.
