Three Holy Family students Dominic Payne, Osiron Talbott, and Greggory Hann presented a check, alongside Coach Dan Talbott, to Kathy Stoops and Holy Family School in Poland for their participation in the very first HIP Football training session.

This check was presented from HIP to their school as a way to give back to their local community.

HIP (Head Impact Prevention) Football was created by former YSU graduate and NFL linebacker Tim Johnson as an alternative to youth tackle football for those who still want to learn the real fundamentals of the game without serious injury.

HIP Football allows children of all ages to learn proper techniques and real football fundamentals in all positions on the field while maintaining their health and safety in the game.

“I like learning the real rules of football like the pros(Professionals) and ways to get better,” Osiron Talbott, a second-grader at Holy Family School, said. “I also like that HIP supports my school and my school is learning about HIP.”

Stoops appreciated the financial gift from the organization and her students. Coming from a football loving family, Stoops said, “I love seeing my students participate in athletics. I appreciate the teaching of not only football skills, but also the importance of giving back to one’s community. Thank you to Tim Johnson and HIP Football for their contribution.”
