The Trojans spent Saturday giving back

KUSA – During the summer months, many high school football teams spend their time on the field or in the weight room getting ready for the upcoming season.  The Longmont Trojans do that too, but they also make it an annual event to help the community.

Every year, the Trojans spend an entire day volunteering.  Longmont Head Football Coach Doug Johnson selects multiple sites and projects for his players to attend and have them rotate from morning until the evening.

On Saturday, the Trojans spent hours in Lyons, CO in the sun climbing up and down the side of a mountain to help clear debris near a house that was labeled “unlivable” due to fire hazards surrounding the property.

Lyons’ senior Marissa Casey and her family lost their house in the floods two years ago.  After renting, they’re ready to move into their own place.  The Casey’s can’t do that until the fire marshal approves that the area is safe.

The Longmont Trojans worked all day to make sure that the Casey’s finally have a place to call “home.”
