Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have an older brother? Or what it would be like to "adopt" someone? Well, now you can! Mustang Moms are initiating a fun new program called "Adopt-A-Mustang." Boys and girls, school age kindergarten through sixth grade, have the chance to adopt a varsity football player on Thursday, Aug. 18, 2011 after Meet the Mustangs, which starts at 8 p.m. Registration will be held immediately after Meet the Mustangs at the bowl and costs $25. The fee will go towards t-shirts with the player's name and number on the back and buttons with the player's picture for each child. It's first come-first served, so get their early! Senior varsity players will be selected from first, then juniors, sophomores and freshmen, respectively. Children will select their desired player, complete a registration form and take a picture with their player. Payment will be due at registration.
The children and their adopted Mustangs will exchange lists of their favorite television shows, movies, games, food, etc., so that they can give each other appropriate treats and presents. Children will also be at football games wearing their Mustang's t-shirt and button to show their support. For the first game against Vernon on Aug. 26, children who have adopted a Mustang will be introduced prior to the start of the game and will form a victory line for players to run through.
Mustang Moms hope to make this an annual tradition, so come show your support for the Big Red and Adopt-A-Mustang!
