Happy Thanksgiving from Practice Like Pros!
November 14, 2018
We, the undersigned, have eagerly kicked off Practice Like Pros' second annual "Giving Tuesday" appeal. We've each contributed $1000 and we respectfully ask you to donate whatever you can.
Practice Like Pros is a thoroughly unique, grass-roots, urgently needed, national movement to reduce needless injury in high school football. When founder Terry O'Neil asked for our help one year ago, he promised to make 20 appearances around the country. Instead, he booked 40 appearances (see below), and took along co-presenters such as Archie Manning, Buddy Teevens, Dick Vermeil and Sam Wyche.
Practice Like Pros is on the verge of revolutionizing high school football practice, all the while preserving the integrity of our beloved game on gameday. PLP has persuaded New Jersey officials to reduce practice contact to historically low levels, and pushed the process near approval in several other states. This is fabulous news for the nation's one million high school players and their families. Imagine the misery they'll be spared.
If you agree with us, please mail your check on or before November 27, "Giving Tuesday," to:
Practice Like Pros P.O. Box 1066 Weston, CT 06883
Practice Like Pros is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) charity, EN #46-2994162. As such, your donation is 100% tax deductible. Practice Like Pros will mail a hard-copy acknowledgement on its letterhead.
Thanks for considering,
Jim Lynch, LB, Notre Dame (captain) 1964-66, Kansas City Chiefs 1967-77, Super Bowl champion Archie Manning, QB, Ole Miss 1968-70, New Orleans Saints 1971-82, College Football Hall of Fame inductee Tom O'Leary, DB, Notre Dame 1964-66, National Champion 1966
