The refined young men of Clements varsity football team generously donated 20 post-mastectomy pocketed button-up shirts to the Breast Center. Their generosity and kindness is greatly appreciated and admired by the staff of Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. The breast care navigator, Maria Socci stated, “I admire these young men’s selflessness; it is so kind of them to think of others and want to support the cause.”

Coach Keith Knowles always teaches his varsity team the importance of giving back to their community. Knowles approached his team captains with the idea of taking a portion of their fundraised money to buy post-mastectomy shirts for Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s Breast Center instead of purchasing more football equipment this month. “I am amazed every day at the character and quality of my team,” says coach Keith Knowles.
