While the motorcycle ride saw few riders, the pancake breakfast held at Applebees was a success, said JoAnne White, co-president of the Heritage Football Boosters. "The pancake breakfast went very well. We raised about $2,400 with that," she said. "The problem we have is it costs $10,000 a year to feed the football players. By the time we raise $10,000, we cant get to the coachs wish list because weve got to feed the players."
Coach Tommy Rewis said the field house has recently been remodeled. "They knocked out internal walls and cubicles," he said. "What were trying to do is stabilize the situation while we continue to raise money for a much bigger field house."
Rewis said they would like to have the new $40,000 field house in place by next spring if at all possible. "The support has been great. Our pancake breakfast was big. Applebees treated us very well."
White said other motorcycle-related events that weekend affected the
turnout for the ride. "There were so many events
that weekend. It was just a bad weekend," she said.
