From:  News Release   10/20/17   GCN

This past week, the Lyman Cowboys of Gulfport received the surprise of a lifetime when they learned they were chosen as a winner of Riddell’s Smarter Football program.  The recipients of a $10,000 equipment grant, the team was notified with a congratulatory message from Riddell brand ambassador Peyton Manning. The program received more than 700 applications this year and is awarding 10 winning programs across the country spanning youth to high school that have demonstrated a commitment to a smarter, safer game

The Lyman Cowboys youth league is one of the first USA Football affiliates on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, which means the team has adopted all USA Football guidelines, including heads- up tackling.  The coaching staff also prioritizes off-the-field values, teaching their young players the importance of family and education.
