APS, Aurora Central Earn NFL Grant

Central Grant Presentation

Thanks to the recruiting efforts of the Aurora Central High School athletic department, the Trojans football program recently earned  a $7,500 grant from the NFL Foundation. With help from the 2012 NFL Player-Coach Youth and High School Football Grant Program, Central's football team will look better than ever next season when they take the field in brand new uniforms.

Former Denver Broncos offensive lineman Tom Nalen is an assistant coach at ACHS, and his affiliation made the school eligible to apply for the grant because he is a former NFL player that now coaches for a high school team.  In October 2012, ACHS was awarded a grant from the NFL Youth Football Foundation for $7,500, which allowed them to purchase new football uniforms. A portion will also be allocated for student scholarships, for those that cannot pay the athletic fees.  

Through the NFL Player-Coach Youth and High School Football Grant Program, former NFL players who currently serve as registered head or assistant youth and high school football coaches may apply for grants ranging from $2,500-$10,000 to help support their youth or high school football teams. This grant program recognizes former NFL players who return to their communities to mentor and coach youth or high school football athletes while also providing support to youth and high school football teams nationwide.
