Nike surprises Colerain football team

By

The Colerain football team received a welcome surprise at Thursday’s practice.

The Cardinals were hard at work putting the finishing touches on their preparation for Saturday’s first round playoff game at Hilliard Darby, when the chopping of a helicopter crept closer.

A black helicopter boasted the unmistakable white swoosh of Nike. It landed at Colerain’s practice to deliver the Cardinals’ personalized cold weather gear for the postseason.

The players were unaware this would be happening.

“Nike called us earlier in the week and set all this up,” said Colerain athletic director Dan Bolden. “It’s one of the great things Nike has done with us. It’s a great thing for high school football. Our kids deserved this.”

Nike is one of Colerain’s corporate sponsors. Colerain’s one of just 50 high schools in the country with a corporate sponsorship deal with Nike.

Nike, one of Colerain's corporate sponsors, delivered the Cardinals' cold weather gear by helicopter at practice Nov. 6, 2014.
