I am proud of these guys accomplishment but getting a little tired of the request for handouts for an optional piece of jewelry. Have they put up any of their own funds for this?

Lynn Yes they put up their own funds. Yes it may be just a piece of jewelry to you and me, but to them it's not. I'm sure we all have something that is silly to everyone but means a lot to us. Last just say no I can't afford it or whatever, but please be polite. So many people are down right rude.

tony, I appreciate your comment. I mean no disrespect in saying this, but it seems by most of these photos that the team who wants donations sat and ate breakfast with their friends, while the parents or coaches dished out the goods. Correct me if i'm wrong, I wasn't there. I have no problem supporting causes that are important to high schoolers, but I would like to see them being the ones working their tails off for their money. Not their parents.

Football players were taking trash from people's tables and throwing it out for them during the event. I happened to take photos of ones when they were eating breakfast.

Good to know, Bill. Thank you for the clarification.

Wasn't meant as rude, just it is optional not important equipment to keep them safe or something needed to play the game with. I had to babysit and work car and dog washes to get the money for my class ring in high school. Only wanted to know if they were putting forth real effort towards them.

No worries, no offense taken.
