This will be the 4th Annual Passaic High School Alumni Scholarship Flag Football/Cheerleaders game.
"This has been my attempt to ‘Pay it Forward' to the college bound PHS student athletes who have exemplified an overall effort to achieve academically and in sports. Most of my fundraising is done with T-shirt Sales, GoFundMe accounts and concession at the actual game. As a graduating senior from PHS in 1987, I can recall the financial difficulties I faced early while attending Southern Connecticut State University," Hawes said.
"I have pledged to do as much as I possibly can to give back. I am asking PHS alumni or anyone who supports this cause to give whatever they can. No amount is too small. Football has made a path for me in life. I encourage young athletes to use it as a tool to further their education as well as travel the country."
