CHILDRESS – The Childress Bobcats 7on7 team earned their way to the 2021 Texas 7-on-7 State Tournament both on the field and financially.

 

They are playing in the 2021 Texas 7-on-7 State Tournament through June 26 at Veterans Park in College Station. To pay for the trip, Childress residents hired these Bobcats to do anything from lawn care to putting up a basketball goal.

 

Player Blaven Dill said it was an honor to give back to the community. He also enjoyed meeting new people.

 

“Over the last few weeks, I have been able to mow yards, trim trees and make about 10 trips to the dump,” Dill said. “These are all things that needed to be done in our community.”

 

This is music to his mother’s ears. Nicole Dill said after the boys earned their place in the state tournament, she and the other parents all agreed they needed to work for the financial part as well.
