Coosa High Powder Puff Football
Coosa High School students took to the football field Thursday afternoon for a series of powder-puff football games that raised money for the Sexual Assault Center of Northwest Georgia. The three games involved girls from every grade level including senior and coordinator of the event Kaylee Clayton. Clayton wanted to combine her desire to play powder-puff football before she graduated, and the need to raise awareness for sexual assault into Thursday’s game which was her senior project. Clayton sold tickets to the game in the lunchroom proceeding the event and all money raised from those sales went straight to SAC. Shirts purchased and worn by the actual players had a percentage donated as well. The game also had a concession stand with money raised from sales donated to SAC. At the time of the game the event raised over $500, not counting money raised by the concession stand. Kimberly King, director of programs for the SAC, attended the game and thanked Clayton for her project.
