A Chance to Help!!

There are many sad situations out there, however this one is a little closer to home as it involves a family within the football community as Brody’s father, Jordan Birrell, played with the Fort Garry Lions Major team this past season.

Below is one of these situations that we would like the Falcon families to consider supporting.  We often assume that our health care system will look after the costs involved when a young child becomes very ill, however the circumstances surrounding Brody require that the family move, replace most belongings and his parents have had to put work and education on hold to be with their child.  Due to the seriousness of Brody’s illness and the susceptibility to environmental threats, he needs to be in a special environment to avoid  avoidable health complications. Brody has been diagnosed with a large wide-spread inoperable tumour.

Please take a few moments to read up on this family’s story and consider a donation of any size to help them out.  The link provided will take you to Brody’s “gofundme” web page where you can see more and make a donation to help out.

Thank you to all Falcon families for your time and the generosity of those who are in a position to help.

Brody was like any other 2 year old until he very recently became ill. After multiple hospital visits he has been diagosed with a large wide-spread inoperable tumour and requires aggressive chemotherapy and radiation. Results from the biospy should be back on Christmas Eve and I will post an update.
We are heart broken and frustrated as to why this is happening. Why does this happen to sweet innocent children?
Brody’s mother had just began furthering her education to make a better life for their little family. Due to the circumstances she has been cut off all funding and income sources at this time. While family is contributing what they can it’s just not enough to build a safety net so that they don’t have to worry while they are going through this.
The doctors have advised that once Brody starts his chemo treatments he can return home in between sessions but their home is not safe enough due to the poor air quality as it is a basement suite. They must move to a newly renovated suite and replace all furniture, linens and other items.

Thank you in advance for your donations, anything helps!

Please continue to follow us on Brody’s progress and long road to recovery!

FALCONS vs RAIDERS

BACK AND FORTH BATTLE IN STEINBACH

Atom Falcons head into bye week in great shape

Atoms beat the Nomads A team 69-7.  The offense seems to have sorted out the issues it had the week previous against the Mustangs with several touchdowns by running backs Ishamani Lewin and Cian Campbell.  Quarterback Steven Schanel not only threw for two touchdowns to Brayden Kaprusek but he also ran several times for first downs, a touchdown and successful converts.

The offense has improved dramatically with solid blocking from the offensive line while the defense was again solid only giving up a touchdown on a broken play.  There was also an interception return for a touchdown by Jacob Burym and a strip that resulted in a long run into Nomads territory by Nick Gofman.  Special teams were again solid, with Hugh Montgomery recovering a kickoff and returning a kickoff for a long touchdown.

The Atom boys now have a bye week before playing the Eastman Raiders in Steinbach on the 21st.

FALCON PEEWEES VICTORIOUS IN MUD BOWL!!

 

Greendell’s peewee team stormed to a 25-0 win over the North End Nomads on Sunday in a “mud bowl” at the Nomads field.

Majors were tallied by QB Caullin Moniot, RB Lewis Neegin, and two scores by Safety Trae Tomlinson (punt and kick returns).

 

 

The hard fought victory came amidst extremely wet conditions where nothing was going right for either team early on. The falcon defense was the equivalent of a living brick wall that kept the Nomads at bay and for a negative total offensive yardage.

With the extremely wet weather and field conditions, the offensive game plan, that involved a significant amount of passing, was thrown out the window forcing the team to rely on shear will and determination to move the ball through deep mud puddles. Well done Falcons!
