    Mike Salem, (Stevens), plans to make the long trip to W & M Saturday. For any of you newcomers, Mike has MS, and is confined to his motorized chair. This makes ordinary transportation impossible for him.

    Mike has to rent a transportation van for a trip like this. He usually is able to get a family member to handle the driving chores, but it's still an expensive trip.

    As in the past, I know that Mike would appreciate any financial assistance that we can provide.

    The best method to help Mike is to send him a check. Of course, if you will be at the championship game in Williamsburg, you can catch up with him there. He can scrape together enough funds to get to the game, but it leaves him strapped for the month and the holiday season.

    Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Mike granted permission for me to post his address.

    Thank you! I enjoy HS football and VaPreps and I especially like to meet and talk to people who share that interest.

    Our Mike was at the game last year and the temperatures were brutally cold. Our team and fans love him. He had his picture taken after the game with the team and holding the trophy. I might be wrong, but I think it would take an avalanche hitting the field to keep him away. Even then he would probably put that chair in high gear and tough it out!

    I'm still planning on going to the game Sunday. I know the weather has thrown a monkey wrench into some people's plans. I hope to meet and talk with some of you guys. I enjoy meeting people as much as I do watching the games.
