Countdown to Rattlers vs GA Knights (May 17/08)
2008 Rattlers prove its more than just football
The TN Rattlers once again showed that this organization will exist to do more than just play football. On Saturday, March 22, 2008 the Rattler football players brought easter baskets to practice that were eventually donated to the 2nd annual FOM & YES group. The baskets were to help the easter egg hunt of a local nursing home here in Nashville. Shanetha Washington, who represented the organization at the egg hunt stated that it was joy to see the Seniors enjoy the gifts provided by the organization. The relationship that was formed will be on that will benefit both organizations for years to come.
The following is the Thanks sent to the Rattlers organization from Ms. Terry :
