A successful football team is one where the players and coaches work together to achieve their goals.

While the bulk of the attention is given to those players and coaches there are plenty of other people who make a football team go every day of the season and the offseason.

One group of people that might just be the most important is the football moms. Whether it’s making meals that keep the player strong, doing that dirty laundry or giving the support that helps the player stay focused the football mom is in the silent force behind a successful football program.

Powerade wants to honor these unsung heroes with the Powerade Mom of the Week contest presented by Heartland Coca-Cola. Each week you can nominate a mother for the Powerade Mom of the Week presented by Heartland Coca-Cola by submitting an essay telling us why your mom’s impact is important to your individual or team success. Each week the winning essay will earn that team’s booster club a $500 courtesy of Powerade and Heartland Coca-Cola.

This week’s winner is Ali Moore at Liberty North. She was nominated by another Eagles football mom Jennifer John. Below is her nomination essay

“Ali is your dream football mom. I first met her when our sons played football freshman year 2015. The first two years the team didn’t have a program in place to feed the boys before/after games. Freshman/Sophomore years, she organized contributions for sack lunches, never hesitating to put in her own money to make sure that each player enough to eat and drink. Junior year brought in a new coach and many changes.

“Ali stepped up to be a part of the “board” – heading committees, junior class team mom, spending weekends after a game washing ALL the uniforms, helping serve food on game nights, coordinating camp week breakfast (getting up before the sun to have everything ready before practices). Now, she is senior team mom, on the board, served the boys breakfast each day of camp week, coordinated shirts for the senior families, uniform laundry, helping with game day food and so much more. She is an amazing person, with a huge heart.  She would do anything for anyone and is worthy of being named mom of the week.”

To enter next week’s contest, submit an essay detailing the work of your special Mother. The essays need to be 200 words or less and can be submitted to momoftheweek@prepskc.com
