MONTCLAIR, NJ - Montclair Mounties Football team has overcome the odds this year and taken home the State Championship Title for the third consecutive year. They will now each be given a Championship ring in recognition of their hard work and dedication.
Since the cost of each ring is $200, the Gridiron Club has launched a fundraising campaign to offset the cost of the rings. Organizers are hoping to raise enough money so that each player can walk home with a championship ring.
The following message was posted on the www.gofundme.com page:
"The 2014 Montclair Mountie Football team has achieved enormous success this year by winning a third State Championship in three years. This has taken a toll on our funds to help the players purchase their state championship rings. The rings will cost $200 per player this year. Unfortunately, the school district does not provide funding for this type of reward. The Players are selling state championship gear, however this usually only covers a quarter of the expense. Any additional donations would be greatly appreciated and allow all of our players to receive a ring they will treasure for the rest of their lives. Thank You, Go Mounties!!!!!!!!!"
