The VICIS rep, Andrew Weaver, came to Mountain View and spoke with Shawn Begay (equipment manager) and Coach Fell regarding VICIS helmets. Andrew would like to provide a short informational meeting to speak to the football players and parents regarding this brand of helmets. He will be at Mountain View on Wednesday, January 23 at 7:00 p.m. in the ToroDome. He will bring a VICIS helmet with him for players to try. If you would like to do a little research before the meeting, please view the VICIS website. Helmets are being offered at 10% off list price and could have additional discounts with multiple orders. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending so we can plan accordingly.

On December 16, 2018, fifteen boys gathered together to wrap several gifts to deliver to our Christmas family.
Each of the four family members received at least 15 gifts! Some items included:
- Vans tennis shoes
- Champion T-shirts
- JBL speakers
- Barbie jeep
- Hello Kitty airplane
- Barbie dolls & clothes
- Flat iron
- Michael Kors purse
- Electric skateboard
- and so much more!
Before heading out to deliver the gifts some boys shared a few thoughts on how one person can make a difference in another's life. We are so proud of the boys, their families, and their willingness to help others. It was a humbling moment for all when the family members shed tears of joy and expressed their gratitude. In addition, Toro Football was able to give the family $600 in gift cards to Walmart, Fry's, and Target and $1,000 in cash to help with their rent and medical expenses. The family was extremely touched, and wishes Toro Football a very Merry Christmas and may God bless us all.
The players interacted with the residents as they helped them decorate gingerbread houses, played Christmas Bingo, and sang carols. The residents were so impressed with the football players, that they have invited them to come again. Everyone had fun!
