There for everything

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 Kim Dubin of Olathe North. Here is the nomination submitted by Olathe North Quarterback Club President Dana Martin.

“Kim Dubin is an Olathe North football mom that makes it so much easier to be quarterback club president. She is always there behind the scenes when help is needed. She doesn't like the spotlight but is always willing to provide support when needed.

For example, when we had our annual mulch sale, we needed more trucks to deliver the mulch. She showed up with a truck and a trailer and helped deliver many orders that morning. She also is one of the few parents not on the executive board that helped with our annual golf tournament.

She isn't just there for the fundraising though. She is also willing to help feed the boys with their weekly team meals as her schedule allows. She also makes sure she is at the North games - away and home to support our guys on the field. Kim has brought joy to many Olathe North Quarterback Club members and her smile is always present when in front of the players!”

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
