The Reagan Rattlers Team Moms know a thing or two about spreading the word for a cause.
Each October, the Reagan Team Moms help promote a charitable event in which football players honor family members who have battled breast cancer with the annual Pink Out Game.
The Reagan Team Moms drew upon that promotional spirit in getting their fans to rock the vote for the 2015 Friday Night Football Magazine Team Moms Contest, sponsored by Samsung. With a winning prize of $1,000 in the form of a donation to the football program at stake, the Reagan team moms received 10,900 votes on their way to winning the contest for the state of Texas.
FNF Magazine set out to determine the school that boasted the best collection of football moms through an online vote that ran from July 1 to October 22. As a reward, FNF Magazine and Samsung will make a $1,000 donation to the booster program. The Reagan team moms will also be featured with a story and photo in the 2016 edition of FNF Texas Magazine.
Reagan head team mom Susan Sullivan helped promote the contest by sending emails and text messages to all high school football parents. Reagan High administrators – as well as the administrators from the two feeder schools, Barbara Bush Middle and Jose Lopez Middle – sent email blasts to parents. The Diamondbacker Sports Association, Reagan’s Athletic Booster Club, promoted the contest on its homepage at RattlerSports.com.
Finally, the Reagan team moms reached out to two prominent Reagan alums, Trevor Knight, who is now playing at Oklahoma, and Spencer Nealy, who is playing at Texas A&M, to ask for help promoting the contest on Twitter and Facebook.
“Many of our Reagan Football Moms are passionate about high school football … this IS Texas, after all!” Sullivan said. “But I can say with confidence that ALL of our football moms are passionate about Reagan Rattler Football! Like most moms, it begins with the son you love more than life itself, but for our Reagan Football Moms it soon blossoms into unwavering support and willingness to sacrifice for, not only our own son, but also his teammates, their parents, the coaches and their families … each an important piece in a very accomplished Reagan football program. Our dedicated football moms are invested in contributing not only to the success of the program as a whole, but also to supporting each and every member of the Reagan football family.”
