It is a powerful organization that focuses on empowering young boys to become strong men that will affect the community. 

Mr. Little goal is to ultimately help people reach their full potential. He has a passion for football which came from toughness and not having the funds to play. He had to raise funds to play on his first team where he met his neighbor David Patten (a three time super bowl champion). It was something about his acquaintance and being friends with his sons learning the life of football at a young age. 

This launched him to pour everything he had to his nephews and his community. Coach High was his first football coach, who also served as a father figure while dealing with the sudden illness and the death of his father. He took him to all his games when his mom couldn’t do it because she had to now take on both parental roles while pursuing her dreams and taking care of his siblings. 

Coach Jay is the man he is today because of his life’s trauma and confusion at an early age. He is now the head coach of the Greenview Eagles youth football team.
