GREENFIELD — Following Greenfield-Central’s record-setting 62-12 win over Indianapolis Northwest on Friday, G-C head coach Roger Dodson headed toward the locker room in search of equipment.
Dodson and the host Cougars returned with football pads to donate to their counterparts at Northwest, an Indianapolis Public School member struggling to financially support its athletic program.
Northwest coaches told Dodson they had a handful of players who can’t get on the field because of a lack of pads, helmets and so forth.
“Coach (John) Butler, he’s going to try to go to work and build a program,” Dodson said of the Space Pioneers’ leader. “It’s a tough situation for them. If they stick together and listen to him, they’ll keep getting better.”
