I always like using the phrase that a high school football team is woven into the fabric of a community. Today’s story from Sparks, Nevada shows the importance of the of the Sparks Railroaders to the locals.

KOLO-TV reports that the community raised $40,000 to buy helmets and shoulder pads. According to the story, the team needed to raise at least $6,000 to replace twenty-four helmets.
