Padua Franciscan High School would like to congratulate the 2015 Adapted Football League All-Stars on a great season.

Throughout the eight week season, 20 of Padua’s football coaches and players volunteered their time helping athletes. Many also lent a hand during the All-Star game at the Cleveland Browns’ complex in Berea.

“Over the last few years we’ve been hoping to get involved with this great and growing program. It timed up right this year and we were happy to be able to work with Mike Urban and the Achievement Centers for Children,” said Head Coach Tony Shuman ’91.

The foundation provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate in organized, competitive and developmental sports.

Service is an important component of the Franciscan mission at Padua. Every year, Padua football players choose to get involved in community outreach programs like the AFL and the City of Cleveland’s Mayor’s Holiday Basket Giveaway.

“Playing games under the Friday night lights provides lasting memories for our team. However, I believe, it’s the positive memories that they help make for others, that really matter,” said Shuman.

Padua wishes the AFL athletes good luck on their upcoming season.
