Trotwood football players take teamwork off the field

TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – The Trotwood-Madison football team is tackling a project.

“We have some lots that we have. We are cutting grass, picking up trash, livening up the sidewalks,” said head coach, Jeff Graham.

From freshmen to seniors, these players are trading in their football gear for lawn gear, helping to keep their community clean.

“We’ve been blessed over a couple of years with four, well three for us, state championship runs and the community supported us very well so we are just giving back and supporting them,” said team captain, Ryan Lucas.

Graham said service like this helps build the team. He also says it’s a great thing for his players to have on their college resumes.

On Saturday, the Rams’ demonstrated a team spirit that goes beyond the field.

“We just want to show the community and the district and everybody that we are just not only football players. We want to be a part of the community,” said Graham.

The Rams’ first game is on August 29th.

A few members from the girl’s volleyball team also helped out with the clean up today.
