Jacob Baylin is a 16 year old young man who lives in Crystal Beach, Nepean. He played football with the local Bell Warriors Football Club and his youngest brother is still in the program. For those that have been involved with the club more closely, you’ll know Jacob’s father Rich Baylin who is currently our Pee Wee Head Coach. This past Saturday, Jacob took the time to present me, Paul Stewart (Bell Warriors Football President), with a cheque to help contribute to our club’s efforts to support players who are financially challenged. This was his own money that he earned working this past summer. In making this generous donation, Jacob becomes the newest, and by far the youngest, Friend of the Warriors Sponsor.
“Every year, the Warriors have numerous players that just could not afford to play football without some financial support. It is a key mandate of the Warriors to ensure we do all we can to make our great sport affordable for all. We rely heavily on community support for our young players and it is truly amazing to see someone as young as Jacob recognize and contribute to the cause. Jacob was a leader in his playing days with the Warriors and continues to set an example that we could all learn from and aspire to.” – Paul Stewart, Bell Warriors President.
That’s the way to #PayItForward Jacob! THANK YOU!!!
