Players With Pride
Deer Park High School

2016 got off to rough start for entire Deer Park Community with the passing of Mr. Tom Griswold on January 17th.  Mr. Griswold was a very valuable and treasured asset to Player With Pride.  His guidance and mentorship has been present since the very beginning of our organization.  He was our 2010 Pride Award Winner.  Now with a heavy heart we take a deep breath and move forward in providing opportunities for fellowship and friendship’s to continue.

Our dinner was held for the second time at the Francis R. Healey Center.  At the dinner we were able to donate $750.00 to the Robert Hollifield Scholarship Fund, $500.00 to the Louis Manning Scholarship Fund and $10,000 to the Turf Fund.  

A list of our events for 2016 are:

         April 9th – Feed the players Girls softball at 1:00p.m.  Boys J.V. Baseball at 3:00

                  ( Come out and help us grill out or maybe catch a foul ball or two)

         August 13th-  Golf outing at Sharon Woods 12:00p.m.

                   ( Get your foursome together and enjoy Sharon Woods)

         August 13th-  Picnic at Chamberlain  5:00p.m.

                   ( Come to the picnic bring your family and show them that there really is a Mr. Estes)

         December – Greg Rogers Memorial Wrestling Tournament

                     ( Last year over 20 teams participated. If you love wresting this is the place to be)

We were reminded on January 17th that we are not going to last forever.  So let’s take the time we have to share with each other and maybe give back a little along the way.
