For the sixth year in a row the Mount football team will host a “purpose driven football game” this Saturday September 27th vs Manchester University , the two nonprofits that we will be working with are again Samaritans Feet International and The Pink Ribbon Girls.
Starting tomorrow thru Friday during lunch outside of 5th 3rd football team members will be asking for 10 $ donations for Pink game day T shirts, and Bright orange Barefoot movement wrist bands. Please know that every T-shirt sold purchases and delivers a MEAL to a mother fighting breast cancer, and every wrist band sold allows two shoeless children a new pair of shoes and socks. Over the past six years the MOUNT has raised thousands of dollars for these two wonderful organizations.
New this year; we deliver !! If you would like to sponsor your favorite football player with a wrist band please email me back at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have it delivered so that you can give it to the player directly. It is our team goal for every player to wear a Samaritans Feet wrist band this Saturday! GO LIONS!!!! Thanks to each of you who choose to support “purpose driven football “.
“I think when you’re serving your community, it doesn’t matter where that community is,” Smith said. “If you’re truly about it, you’re going to migrate to wherever that community is. This is my community, so I’m going to serve my community when I have the opportunity.”

Max Swoboda is a Lion! Max is the the son of Michael and Cheryl Swoboda. The Moeller product and All GCL performer chose MSJ among many top competitors and is the 2nd offensive lineman from the state champion Crusaders to do so. The 6'2 290 lb guard will help bolster the offensive line for years to come. Max will be playing with friend and MSJ commit Brad Popplewell also. The choice for Swoboda to come came down to the relationships he had built with the coaches and the strong academic and athletic tradition that MSJ has to offer. Max is a huge addition to an already strong recruiting class that has kept a large portion of targeted talent in Cincinnati.
John Phillips, the son of Jeff and Jill Phillips has committed to play at The College of Mount St. Joseph. The 6'3" 300lb Offensive Tackle was a leader on and off the field receiving the Leadership Captain Award as well as having perfect attendance at Miami Trace. Phillips was a staple on the Miami Trace offensive line making big blocks in key situations. John was 2nd team all SCOL both his Junior and Senior year. John plans to major in Sports Management and minor in Business. John picked MSJU because of it's strong internship program and tradition both scholastically and on the gridiron.
