Hartford Hurricanes Compete In Florida – Get Great Send Off

Hartford Hurricanes
Hartford – (November 30, 2012) –The Hartford Hurricanes, a youth football and cheerleading team, comprised of 90% Hartford kids leave today to complete in the Eastern National Youth Football Championships tournament. This comes after their win at the New England Regional tournament last weekend.

“I want to congratulate these young men for their sportsmanship, hard work and talent. I also want to congratulate Coach Phil Bryant for his leadership and dedication. His commitment to work with our youth creates a positive impact on the entire community. I wish the team all the best, and of course, victory,” said Mayor Segarra.

Competing in the national championships represents a once in a lifetime for many of the young men. As a gesture of support for Hartford’s youth, Mayor Segarra has agreed to contribute $20,000 to offset their $40,000 travel expenses. Photo by Merel Davis
