Rosewood football wins service award

Prep football

The Rosewood High School football was named one of eight winners of the Commissioner’s Cup for community service in the 2018-19 school year. The Eagles, who were sponsored by head coach Robert Britt, visited the Ronald McDonald House of Greenville to update the landscaping, building exterior, walls, cabinets and windows, and give the staff of the Ronald McDonald House much-needed help in completing tasks they didn’t have the time for. A group of football players also took time to visit with children suffering from life-threatening illnesses at Vidant Medical Center. These young men spend time with these children and leave them with a small football as a gift. Anywhere from 30-50 children and their parents are touched through Rosewood Football’s service.
