As our family prepares to welcome home for Thanksgiving our 3 children and their spouses, as each blessed us with very special weddings over the past 6 months, I am moved by all the things in my life to be Thankful for, and look ahead to what I believe will be a fabulous 2018.
The very best part of my life is that I get to travel to unique parts of the world with curious student athletes, visionary coaches and administrators, along with supportive parents, providing them with the opportunity to become better Global Citizens through experience abroad, while competing in the very best team sport ever created. What a blessing!
Over the past year it has been a true pleasure to work with the dedicated folks who comprise Catholic Athletes for Christ (CAC), realizing the positive elements they bring
to schools and athletes. Hopefully you have seen the CAC Top 25 Rankings we have proudly been producing and distributing this season, http://www.globalfootball.com/cac-top-25/
It is fun to feature and promote Catholic school programs, as I am always thankful for the education I received at Erie Cathedral Prep and the University of Notre Dame.
I am excited to create a new event for June 2018 in partnership with the CAC, the Roma VII-on-VII Bowl Tour, featuring a 7-on-7 tournament with American and European teams, along with a Big Mens Competition and Combine. http://www.globalfootball.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Roma-Bowl-2018.pdf
We know this experience will change the lives of those who join us, as we will visit sites in Rome and the Vatican only accessible due to the CAC partnership, and personally
get to know youngsters from other countries on and off the playing fields of Onesti Olympic Training Center of Rome.
Our first commitment is St Louis University High of Missouri, the 2nd oldest Jesuit school in America, who will celebrate their school’s 200th anniversary with this tour.
We hope to welcome many other school teams at the Varsity, JV or freshman levels, and would encourage you to contact me to discuss in more detail; 817.219.7274
Please feel free to share this message, and our Thanksgiving wishes to others.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
