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.

Sports Shake and PrepsKC want to honor these unsung heroes with the first annual Mom of the Week contest. Each week you can nominate a mother for the Mom of the Week contest 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 $1,000 gift courtesy of Sports Shake.

The contest for week 1 begins now with the first winner announced Wednesday, Aug. 17. A winner will be announced for the next nine weeks with the story posted on
