Default Thanks for those who Voted For Eric AGAIN!!

Sports Illustrated confirmed today that his story won. the grant and a trip for 10 teamates to the Sports Illustrated awards in New York City. The Ishpeming Hematites also won the Division 7 State Title last weekend against Detroit Loyola 20-14. The team asked SI if the entire team could go, so they are pawing for a bus and 5 hotel rooms. The community is in the process of raising money for the extra hotel rooms. It's great to see this team win and be so close. The team played through some tough stuff this year and came out on top. Thanks again to all who voted.

Link to some of what they played through. They also lost a middle school player in a traffic accident earlier this year.

A couple month ago I posted about Eric Dompierre, a boy who has Downs Syndrome, and because of a rule in the MHSAA, he almost missed playing football and basketball in his Senior year. His family won the fight and the rule got changed and he got his chance to play.

Now his story is part of the Sports Illustrated Underdogs, If his school is selected they will win a $25,000 grant towards athletics, and 10 players will get a chance to attend the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year Awards in New York City.

Watch the video, if his story moves you please vote!

Thanks!

Not much really gets to me but for some reason sports stories and movies make me tear up like a little girl.

Those who voted, thanks, looks like Eric's story is going to win. Their team is in the Semi finals this weekend at the Superior Dome(NMU). His dad and teammates really have appreciated the support.
