Pahokee dismissed from Nike 70N tourney


Hall on Nike: 'They had it
out for us'

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BEAVERTON (Ore.) - For the second year
in a row, the Pahokee Blue Devils have been
booted out of the Nike 70N national tourna-
ment.
It has not been truly confirmed why Pa-
hokee was sent home early.
But Nike did release a statement as to
their explanation of the decision, which left
members of the Blue Devils stunned, to say
the least.
"Every team was briefed on our code of
conduct policy on Wednesday (July 15),"
said Leroy Ebanks, the Nike brand manager.
"We had a conversation with every team
about what the expected level of behavior
would be on campus. Essentially, [Pahokee]
violated that code of conduct, and they were
dismissed from the tournament."
Dennis Hall, a Pahokee wideout and one
of 20 players who flew out to Oregon last
week, was both surprised and disappointed
that his Blue Devils didn't get to participate
in the Nike 70N tournament.
"We don't know the real reason Nike
kicked us out," Hall said. "We'll just wait to
see what they have to say about it."
For now, unfortunately, only a myriad of
allegations as to what happened have sur-
faced.
And it has been particularly frustrating for
Pahokee since these alleged rumors have
come out.
After a preliminary round game that Pa-
hokee played on Thursday, July 16 (Day 1),
at least two unidentified Pahokee represen-
tatives were allegedly involved in a dispute
with a Nike official.
This alleged incident occurred not long
after a group of Pahokee players were told
by Nike representatives to quiet down after
player representatives from eight selected
teams were told by ESPN college football
analyst Kirk Herbstreit to 'make some noise,'
according to Hall.
Pahokee, Miami-Northwestern, Byrnes
(S.C.), DeSoto (Tx.), Gainesville (Ga.), Dal-
las-Skyline (Tx.), Lakewood (Calif.) and Gar-
dena-Serra (Calif.) were the eight programs
that Nike selected to compete in this year's
Nike7ON tournament.
Herbstreit was a featured guest speaker
at The Huddle, a meeting room in which
all eight teams were reportedly engaged in
a hour-long speaking session by the ESPN
personality.
"It just got loud when Kirk Herbstreit was
asking us if there were any California, Texas,
South Carolina, Georgia or Florida teams out
there," Hall explained.
After an unidentified group of Pahokee
players were told by Nike officials to leave
the meeting, a confrontation reportedly
sparked from that, according to Hall.
No other information was revealed by
Hall in regards to the alleged incident.
"A Nike staff member thought Pahokee
was making the most noise. We were loud,
but I don't think that was a good reason to
kick us out of the tournament."

Pahokee's De'Joshua Johnson eludes two defenders after making a spectacu-
lar catch in a preliminary game at the Nike 70N tournament last week. Pahokee
was identified by Nike as the 'Vapor Jets' for the competition.


Pahokee, according to Hall, was dis-
missed from their hotel suites the next
morning (July 17).
Staying at the Embassy Hotel Suites, with
all expenses paid for by Nike, Hall said that
Nike officials wanted to 'kick Pahokee out at
9:30 a.m.'
But, according to Hall, Pahokee was al-
lowed to stay until check-out time, which
was noon.
The events after that moment had alleg-
edly infuriated members of the team, includ-
ing Hall and De'Joshua Johnson, to name
just two.
One nasty allegation was that Pahokee
was involved in a theft, but it's not at all clear
to this day what actually happened.
"It wasn't us stealing, it was kids from
other teams who stole from Nike," Johnson
said of the alleged incident. "We feel we
were marked from last year."
Pahokee was reportedly kicked out of
the 2008 Nike 70N tournament for engag-
ing in an all-out brawl with Miami-Booker T.
Washington after losing 22-21 in a prelimi-
nary game.
"Nike provided us with everything, so
what do we need to steal up there for?" Hall
wondered. "They had it out for us."
Hall added that after Pahokee boarded
their charter buses to Portland International
Airport, the Blue Devils had to stay at the lo-
cation for about 10 hours.
Pahokee's flight from Oregon to West
Palm Beach was at about 10 p.m. that Friday
night (July 17).
Johnson on Nike's treatment of Pahokee
after being removed from the competition:
"We had no food and no money," John-
son said of his team. "Nike refused to offer
us lunch and dinner. What's messed up is
that before we came to Oregon, Nike told us
not to bring any money because everything
is going to be on them."


Hall couldn't agree more with Johnson's
assessment of Nike.
"They [Nike officials] were being nasty to
us," Hall said. "I don't know why they would
do that, but I do know Nike treated us like
dogs after they sent us to the airport. They
didn't want to have anything to do with us
anymore."
Representatives from Nike could not be
reached for comment on this particular sub-
ject matter.
The flight home was relatively quiet, Hall
said, as the Pahokee Blue Devils, were still
shocked and stunned by what occurred.
"I can't believe this, man," Hall said. "Two
wrongs don't make a right but if we stayed,
we probably would've won the champion-
ship."
Blaze Thompson, the Pahokee Blue Dev-
ils head coach, was unavailable for com-
ment after multiple attempts to reach him
by his cell phone.
Notes: Miami-Northwestern defeated
DeSoto (Tx.), 34-23 in the Nike70N cham-
pionship game.
Pahokee and Miami-Northwestern won
their respective divisions in the preliminary
games.
Pahokee's dismissal prevented the nation
from seeing the first-ever matchup between
the Blue Devils and the Bulls.
It has been confirmed by Rivals.com that
the Kickoff Classic Game between Pahokee
and Miami-Northwestern, originally sched-
uled for Friday, Aug. 28 in Pahokee, has been
cancelled.
It would have been the No. 1 overall
game of the year, as recently ranked by Ri-
vals.com.

tion and results, you can visit the Internet at

First Confirmation of HINL-Flu in Hendry County


Hendry County, FL-The Hendry and
Glades County Health Departments were
informed today of the first confirmed H 1NI-
Flu in Hendry County.
A sample that was sent to the lab was
confirmed today for the H1N1 virus.
The client had mild symptoms and has
fully recovered. Individuals in close contact
with the client have not shown any symp-
toms, but will be monitored.
While most cases of HIN1 Swine Flu
are mild, there are exceptions. Pre-existing


health conditions often play a role in how
individuals react to the flu. Florida currently
has listed 2,188 confirmed cases of H1N1
Swine Flu.
The Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments will continue to closely moni-
tor the situation.
The Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments recommend the following:
*Avoid close contact with people who
are coughing or seem to be ill.
*If you get sick with flu-like symptoms,


stay home and limit contact with others.
*Wash hands frequently (for at least 20-
30 seconds) with soap and warm water to
lessen the spread of any respiratory illness-
es. Wash in between your fingers, your fin-
ger nails, your wrists and forearms.
*Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth.
*Cover your nose and mouth with a tis-
sue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the
tissue in the trash after you use it.
*Routinely wipe down "shared" items


(phones, door knobs, hand rails etc.) with a
household sanitizer.
The symptoms of H IN 1-Flu are very simi-
lar to the symptoms of the regular seasonal
flu and may include: -Fever (over 100*F) -
Cough and/or Sore Throat - Body Aches -
Headache - Chills - Fatigue.
If you have further questions regarding
HIN1, please contact your healthcare pro-
vider.

they have been waiting for all year.
Opening night at Hendry County Motor-
sports Park, though not without its share of
opening night glitches, was an overwhelm-
ing success.
The standing-room-only crowd of race
fans and competitors. jammed the grand-
stands and pits Saturday night with over 100

er Late Model Challenge and the Late Model
Dash, earning $1,200 for his efforts. Shan
Smith is well known around Florida as one

to shine often at Hendry County.

County Speedway has a top priority to make
the track work well for the drivers and the
fans with the next level of improvements, in-
cluding: Building more of a fan viewing area
.in turn four; Increased parking adjacent to
turns three and four; And getting a handle


on the precise amount of water to make the
track work well.
Given the fantastic crowd and a staff put-
ting together the first show working togeth-
er, things went smoothly and bodes well for
the future of dirt short track racing in South
Florida.

glades clay for July 25th, racing will continue

Walk in the Past: The Fort


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Editor's Note: The following is Part 1 of
a two-part series. The second part will
be featured in next week's edition of the
newspaper.
The Apalachicola River coursed through
swamps that stained the river a tannic brown
as it flowed southward, moving restlessly
along an ageless passage to the Gulf of Mex-
ico. Its slow, meandering waters were broad
and smooth, except for ripples and eddies
that interrupted its surface when sluggish
currents collided with submerged logs.
The silent gaze of the river captured the
crudely built cabins and shoreline scenes in
vivid, watery images that were enraptured
by beautiful songs borne by the winds. The
sounds carried by the gentle breezes to the
river's edge were the musical hymns of peo-
ple, joyfully laboring together to harvest the
rich soil's bounties.
Laughter and song overcame the hard
labor as their many hands worked swiftly to
relieve the heavily laden corn stalks of their
golden treasures. A voice with song rang out
loud and was followed by a chorus of other
voices, rich in southern black folklore.
Ebony faces radiated with the joy of free-
dom as their voices rose above the forest and
reached out to the heavens in spiritual jubi-
lee. They were a people who had known the
terrible bondage of slavery and now basked
in their new found freedom.
The Negro Fort, .perched on a small
bluff overlooking the river, overshadowed
and protected their community like a fierce
hawk. Its military strength included canons,
powder, muskets and 300 armed black mili-
tiamen, whose allegiance was to no nation,
but to a universal truth, which declares that
all men are created equal.
Liberty at the Negro Fort would be short
lived because it threatened the insane age
of reason that prevailed in the world at that
time. Slavery, a centuries old lie had been
grafted into the America culture and molded
into an ill, misshapen truth by greedy men.
It was an ugly truth that would be nourished
.and protected by wealthy slaveholders, even
at the expense of a bloody civil war.
The War of 1812 birthed a poem called
the "Defence of Fort McHenry" in 1814. It
was written by Francis Scott Key and later
made into a song titled, "The Star-Spangled
Banner." In 1931, a congressional resolution
signed by President Hoover made the song
our national anthem.
Very powerful, yet contradicting words
in this song read, "For the land of the free"
because the Negro Fort was destroyed two
years later. It is time to "Take a Walk in The
Past" and read about some of the events that
led to the First Seminole Indian War.
In 1814, The Treaty of Fort Jackson was
signed after Creek Red Stick resistance was
broken at The Battle of Horseshoe Bend. Its
harsh terms demanded the Creeks cede 23
million acres of their homelands to the Unit-
ed States. Most of the ceded lands were lo-
cated in what is now Alabama, while smaller
cessions came from territories known today
as southwest Georgia.
The Treaty of Ghent, which ended the
War of 1812, called for the removal of Brit-


ish forces from America. Withdrawal of
British troops from the southeast removed
the much needed military support for the In-
dians that continued to fight the Americans
and opened the ceded lands in the southeast
to settlement.
The Indian lands represented the Ameri-
can dream to the settler, who viewed land as
wealth. Most of America during this time pe-
riod was an agrarian culture whose industry
was farming. New land that was rich in top
soils had the same mystical affect on the set-
tler as a gold strike had on the prospector.
American settlers rushed to the Indian
lands like a torrential river, sweeping aside
the Indians as they spread quickly over the
coveted Creek territories, inundating the
lands with farms and towns. The territory
that would later become Alabama had a
population of approximately 9,000 in 1810.
Ten years later the population had increased
to 144,000.
European governments protested that
the settlements on Creek lands were illegal.
The British contended that article nine in the
Treat of Ghent (signed in 1814 and approved
by the U.S. Senate in 1815), stated that Brit-
ish Indian allies, who had fought against the
United States, should have all their prewar
territories and possessions restored.
The American government contested this
claim, declaring that the Treaty of Jackson
in 1814 had settled the affairs of the Creek
Indian War prior to the Treaty of Ghent. It
should be noted that article nine in the Trea-
ty of Ghent was reviewed by American del-
egates before they signed the treaty and later
approved by the U.S. Senate. In all fairness,
article nine should have been honored or re-
moved from the Treaty of Ghent.
The Creek Confederacy was now a de-
feated and broken people, forced to give
way to the invading settlers. Rather than
facing the uncertainties of life in the United
States, many of the Creeks chose to become
refugees in La Florida. This was the third mi-
gration of Creeks into Florida.
Creek war leaders, who had retreated
into Spanish Florida during the Creek War,
received aid from the British and continued
their fight against the Americans until the
War of 1812 ended in 1815. When the war
ended, the Creek Red Sticks felt that the Brit-
ish were abandoning them and protested to
the British government. Several times, differ-
ent Red Stick leaders, with the aid of sym-
pathetic British citizens still living in Florida,
traveled to England and presented their cas-
es to the crown. England failed to intervene
on the Indians behalf for fear it could start
another war with the United States.
During the War of 1812, the British had
attempted to create a black army of 5,000 in
Florida that would be used to invade Geor-
gia and start a slave insurrection. Andrew
Jackson forfeited the British plans when
he captured Pensacola and later won the
Battle of New Orleans. However, blacks did
receive military training from British officers
stationed at the British forts and marched to
war with the Redcoats at The Battle of New
Orleans.
The South had always been fearful of a
Black Insurrection and had good reason.

9-foot Burmese python bagged


on day I of permit program


Armed with snake hooks and nets, a
group of reptile experts selected by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) to participate in the state's
python permit program captured a 9-foot,
8-inch Burmese python. The volunteer per-
mit holders spotted the python in water un-
derneath a boardwalk leading to a camp on
a tree island. It was later euthanized.
"Honestly, I was surprised. I did not ex-
pect to see a Burmese python today," said
Shawn Heflick of Palm Bay, one of the per-
mit holders. "We hope our success today
helps us establish connections with airboat
operators and sportsmen out here in the
'Glades. They can tell us where these snakes
are, so we can go out and find them."
The FWC's Burmese python permit
program kicked off Friday. It allows permit
holders to search for pythons on several
FWC wildlife management areas and lands
managed by the South Florida Water Man-
agement District.
"Today's success in the field points to the
professionalism and experience of our per-
mit holders," said FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto. "We thank Gov. Charlie Crist for
supporting this program. Today's outcome
shows that we do have a serious Burmese
python problem, and this program is a good
first step in helping to stop the spread of this
exotic species."
To date, the FWC has issued permits to
five people to participate in the program.
Permit holders must already have a Reptile


of Concern permit. The FWC screens them
before issuing permits for participation in
this program. When permit holders capture
and euthanize a python, they must report its
GPS location and take a digital photo of the
carcass. They must also fill out a data collec-
tion sheet and submit it to the FWC. If they
wish to do so, permit holders may sell the
snake's hide and meat. The python permit
program runs from July 17 to Oct. 31, at
which time the FWC will evaluate the data
collected and determine if it should extend
or expand the program.

elect to pursue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filng with
the District a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e.,

The Meaning of "The
Declaration"
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The Declaration of Independence says,
"We hold these truths to be self-evident that
all men are endowed by their Creator with
certain inalienable rights, that among these
are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
- That to secure these Rights governments
are instituted among men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed."
According to Jefferson and those who
pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred hon-
or to defend their declaration, the founda-
tion of America's culture lay in self-evident
truth that all men are created by God.
Because of that fact, all must be equal in
His sight, equal before the law, and equal in
value.
Further, they reasoned that all God-given
human rights are to be safeguarded by the
civil state in order to fulfill its obligation to
God to establish justice.
It is no accident that they listed as the first
and most fundamental of all rights - the right
to life.
The Declaration is saying that it agrees
with God.
All men have unique value because all
are made in God's own image. Therefore,
human life is sacred, demanding to be treat-
ed with respect and dignity by all men.
Unless the civil state recognizes this inter-
pretation of the right to life, the next founda-
tional value spoken by Jefferson is rendered
meaningless.
The word "Liberty" becomes a mere hol-
low rhetoric unless individual men respect
human life and practice individual self-re-
straint in regard to the lives of others.
Abuse denies value (rooted in the pur-
poses of God) and diminishes the liberty of
the abused.
Likewise, if a man must be forcibly re-
strained from such tryannical conduct, he,
too loses liberty.
Only through self-restraint (self-govern-
ment which respects the sanctity, dignity
and value of all human life) can man enjoy
liberty.
Finally, men must be free to pursue hap-
piness. Interestingly, the key concept clearly
understood here by our founding fathers
was that of private property - the right to win,
control, inherit and steward private property
within one's family.
In their world, freedom to own was the
epitome of pursuing happiness. This free-
dom to produce and steward wealth was
central to their concept of liberty.
Our only hope is to rebuild a new cultural
consensus.
We must reestablish the preeminence of
and the content of our nations' original self-
evident truths.
They must become real values of ordi-
nary citizens. They must not be reduced to
mere buzz-words by which politicians ma-
nipulate unwary voters.
This was evident in the last election. They
must govern us in all spheres of govern-
ment.

Ethics: The Great


Commandments and Pitfalls New Methods for New Times
to avoid By Pastor John Hicks
-. - - First United Methodist Church


By The Keverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I attended a recent conference and the
topic of ethics came up. For many profes-
sionals, a code of ethics is a part of their
being able to practice; for others there is no
code of ethics.
Unfortunately, ethics among clergy seem
to vary.
There is a trial in one of our neighbor-
ing communities where a clergyman has
been accused of improperly taking money
through an investment plan.
There is certainly a role conflict when a
person attempts to serve in two capacities at
once; either he serves as a clergyman or as
an investment counselor but not both.
For my own practice, I avoid involvement
in the financial affairs of those who share
in my ministry. If I am worried about the fi-
nances of the church (and how they might
affect my ministry) and a couple come to
talk about a marriage problem, I have a con-
flict if I am aware of their financial situation.
Would their separation mean a decrease
in their giving; and have an influence on the
Church... and my job?
If I have no awareness of their particular
place in the operations of the Church, I am
free to advise without my own needs enter-
ing into the picture.
Someone who seeks the ministry of the
church or help from the clergy should have
an assurance that there are no "hidden agen-
das" involved in what is shared.
Where I have had a conflict, I refer to oth-
ers for special ministrations; I see that as ba-
sic ethics. All too often, clergy have felt that
their ministries give them a special place in
getting involved in areas that are really be-
yond their scope of expertise.
One retired clergyman volunteered at a
mental health center near his home. He be-
gan telling the professionals on the staff that
they were doing things wrong and did not
listen to their explanations for why things
were done as they were.
It seems he thought he knew things he
simply did not know and it took some rude,
direct encounters to let him know he was
not needed.
Ethics get down to two simple command-
ments; that we love the Lord with all of our
hearts, souls, minds and strength; and our
neighbor as ourselves (Mark 12:30)."
When I love my neighbor, I don't worry
about my interests when he is hurting; when
I love God, I look at His creatures and see
them as sacred - to be respected, honored
and not for taking advantage.
When any of us have a ministry, whether
as ordained or as a layperson; we have a sa-
cred trust. Exploitation of any kind is putting
self before others or God; self-interest is not
found in the Lord or His teachings.
I see things done in the name of "re-
ligion" from time to time that bring a bad
name to the many, many faithful, both lay
and clergy, who strive to reflect God's love
and the gifts given them. A lot of correction
is needed at times!


On the third day of the Battle of Gettys-
burg, General Robert E. Lee ordered an at-
tack which called for almost 12,500 men to
charge over 1,000 yards of open terrain to
meet the Union army.
Less than 150 survived.
Lee, great general that he was, made the
fatal mistake of fighting the battle with what
used to work.
He'd been trained at West Point in Napo-
leon's war tactics - masses of men, advanc-
ing against imprecise, short-range weapon
until they could overwhelm the opposing
troops in hand-to-hand combat.
Times had changed as well as the range
and accuracy of rifles. Masses of soldiers
were brought down long before they could
ever reach the Union lines.
A lot of us are still making that fatal mis-
take today when it comes to fighting the
battle for which Jesus gave His life.
The Good News about Jesus always has
been and always will be the unchanging
"power of God for the salvation of everyone
who believes" (Romans 1:16).
That message is always relevant, always
powerful, never to be tampered with, wa-
tered down, or compromised.
But the methods by which we present
His message are always subject to change.
Unfortunately, many of us haven't changed
our methods for a long time.
We're still trying to reach people with
what used to work. But many of today's lost
people don't know the Bible, don't under-
stand the "Christianese" words we use, and
they don't ever plan to come to a religious
meeting to hear a religious speaker talk on a
religious subject in a religious place.
We can't risk losing them because we
insist on doing what we've always done or
only what we're comfortable with.
The eternity of people all around us is at
stake, and this is a battle that is too costly
to lose.
If we insist on fighting today's battle for
the lost with what worked yesterday, we'll
keep.on reaching those whom we've already
been reaching, while most of the spiritually
dying people around us live and die without
God and without hope.
In terms of method, the Apostle Paul tells
us to be willing to do whatever it takes, with-
in Biblical boundaries, to rescue the dying.
Today, that might mean going to where
they are instead of them coming to where
we are; doing outreach in places where they
feel comfortable instead of in our religious
building; and communicating Christ in non-
religious words that a lost person can under-
stand.
It might mean delivering the message in
music that is their musical language instead
of ours; and realizing that it's going to be the
everyday believer like you and me that we'll
have to depend on to rescue the lost more
than those programs we keep creating. The
program of God for rescuing the dying is the
people of God.

'Putting Kids First' to be held this weekend


Annual event to be held Sat-
urday at 10 a.m. in Pahokee

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES - Line it up, kids.
For the past few years, the county has
made the area's youth a priority when it
comes specifically to necessities like school
supplies.
The outreach efforts will reportedly hap-
pen again this Saturday (July 25) at the Pa-
hokee Recreational Center.


Sponsored by the county's Office of Com-
munity Revitalization (OCR) department, in
conjunction with the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO) and the City of Paho-
kee, the area will be taking part in the fifth
annual Putting Kids First event.
Approximately 2,000 book bags and box-
es of school supplies will be given out this
year on a first come, first serve basis.
Unlike last year's, function, which was
held at the Lake Shore Annex in Belle Glade,
there will be no computers or bike helmets
given out.
No explanation for that has been given


out as of press time.
Nonetheless, the youth will likely be
grateful anyway, given the tough economic
times that currently exist.
PBSO personnel will be on hand to direct
traffic and monitor the long lines throughout
the Saturday morning event.
Parents are required to bring their young
children to this weekend's function for veri-
fication purposes, according to PBSO offi-
cials.
Notes: The county's OCR department
was recently authorized by the Board of
Palm Beach County Commissioners to allo-


cate $50,000 worth of funding for Ihis initia-
tive.
Putting Kids First will begin at 10 a.m.
sharp, with its other location to be held at
Palm Beach Central High School in Welling-
ton at the same time.
The location of Saturday's event in Paho-
kee is 360 E. Main Street.
For more information, you could contact
Houston Tate at 233-5303.
Staff Writer Nal Tobbias can be reached at nto-
blas@newszap.com.

Dungy
Continued From Page 1

months ago.
There were admittedly some doubts
about Dungy's appearance, but those ru-
mors have now been confirmed by Jackson,
who's also the Street Beat Inc. founder.
He explains that the opportunity came
as a result of a recent conversation with
Dungy's pastor, Jeffrey Singletary, who's the
overseer of Exciting Central Tampa Baptist
Church in.Tampa.
Not only is Dungy scheduled to speak, but
a host of church choirs and dance groups
are slated to perform, including the Street
Beat dance group and the Exciting Central
Choir.
It must be noted that Exciting Central
Tampa Baptist Church is currently on a choir
concert tour throughout South Florida, with
the Glades area being one of'its stops.
The rally finale will last from 6-10 p.m.
at Glades Central's Effie C. Grear Field, with
television reporter/analyst James Brown of
the NFL Network expected to appear and
cover the event.
"We were trying to figure out how to
do more than a rally finale," Jackson said.
"It's a wonderful thing to have someone of
Dungy's caliber to speak to the community-
at-large. When he speaks, people are going
to listen."
Jessie Hester, the Glades Central Raiders
football head coach, can attest to Jackson's
assessment of Dungy.
Hester knows that firsthand, as he expe-
rienced an encounter with Dungy at Super
Bowl XLI in Miami two years ago, when
Dungy's Indianapolis Colts faced off against
the Chicago Bears.
Dungy went on to become the NFL's first-
ever African-American head coach to win a
Super Bowl, an experience that Hester got to
see in person.
"Tony Dungy is a first-class guy who's
very caring and religious," Hester said of
Dungy. "In my short time talking to him, I
noticed that he's one to take his time out for
you, even if he's busy."
Pete Walker, the Glades Day Gators head
coach, can recall vividly about his own en-
counter with Dungy, who he met in 1997 at a
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) sum-
mer football camp in Black Mountain, N.C.
"He [Dungy] was very down-to-earth
and approachable," Walker said of Dungy. "I
remember Tony signing an FCA Bible for me


and holding my 4-year-old son back then."
Walker's son, Ryan, is currently 16 years
old and will play his first football season this
fall at Glades Day School on the junior var-
sity team.
"I still have the picture taken of me,
Dungy and my son, Ryan," Walker said. "I'll
never forget that moment."
Interestingly, there is an Indianapolis
Colts link that exists between Dungy, Hester
and Walker - albeit in a somewhat indirect
manner.
Walker and Hester were on the same
Colts team in 1990. Hester, who played as
a wide receiver 11 seasons in the NFL from
1985-1996, spent four of his seasons with
the Colts (1990-1993).
Walker, meanwhile, was a free agent
kicker who signed with the Colts in 1990,
Hester's first year with the team.
Walker lasted just two weeks in the NFL
after the Colts cut him in favor of. kicker
Dean Biasucci.
Dungy joined the Colts in 2002 after be-
ing fired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,
where he was the team's head coach from
1996-2001.
After winning a Super Bowl in 2006, he
retired from coaching shortly after the Colts
2008 season concluded.
"Tony Dungy is an icon not only for ath-
letes, but for people in general," said Steve
Wilson, the mayor of Belle Glade. "He has
a philosophy for the love of people and not
just for the winning. Obviously, with that
being said, we could learn something from
him and reach higher goals in life if we come
together on one accord."
Wilson is proud to say that as a result of
recent efforts to combat violence in the area,
'we've never been as strong as a tri-cities re-
gion.'
"Community must be built on commit-
ment and that's what I see the tri-cities doing.
for the communities-at-large," Wilson said.
"But there's still a lot of work to do to pre-
venting and stopping violence in our com-
munities."
And that includes Clewiston, who is one
of four high school football teams invited
next Tuesday to hear Dungy speak.
The others are Glades Central, Glades
Day and Pahokee.
The last time all four teams have congre-
gated together at the same time was when
in February 2007, a celebration was held in
honor of these prestigious football programs
after they made history by reaching the FH-
SAA state finals in 2006.
Glades Central (Class 3A), Glades Day


(Class 1A) and Pahokee (Class 2B) won
state titles, while Clewiston (Class 2A) lost
the state championship game in a triple-
overtime heartbreaker.
Now, they'll be coming together for a dif-
ferent purpose - to further understand the
importance of avoiding violence and reach-
ing their life goals.
"The kids get a message from someone
different," Hester said op behalf of the area's
high school players. "With the stature of
Tony Dungy, our kids will hold on to what
he says a lot more. Our coaches echo every-
day situations of how to behave an stay out
of trouble, but our players don't consider us
as cool."
It doesn't matter to Hester, as his main
focus is making sure the players are staying
focused on being positive role models in so-
ciety.
Jackson takes it a step or two even fur-
ther, as he adamantly believes it's going to
take more than marching to see real change
in the lives of the area's people, regardless
of age. "We've has tremendous participa-
tion for all of the cities over the past few
months," said Jackson, who's expecting
anywhere from 3,000-4,000 people at Glades
Central High School next Tuesday.
"We hope the churches will start minis-
tering to the communities and bringing peo-
ple to the Lord," he continued. "This is the
beginning of something big and it's some-
thing we haven't experienced in the past."
For more information on the rally finale,
please contact Pastor Kenneth Jackson at
924-0380 or Reverend Dr. Robert Rease at
