Dear MGYFA Families,
Many of you have heard about Jake Rodriguez; for those who have not...
Jake is a member of the Maple Grove Crimson Football Family. In November 2018, weeks after completing his 3rd grade tackle football season, he was diagnosed with T cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. For the past 10 months, Jake has been fighting valiantly to regain his health, enduring months of painful treatment, earning small victories and overcoming challenging obstacles.
This young man truly has no quit in him, even in the shadow of losing his mom to cancer in December 2012.
In honor of Jake, his twin brother Ben, and the rest of his family, all Crimson Football Players — grades 4-12 — will be wearing special helmet medallions for the 2019 season.
Keep fighting, Jake! We are with you!
The Rodriquez family has setup a Gofundme to help Jake and his family with the expenses associated with Jake's fight. Please consider donating, thank you.
