DREAM BIG...LIVE BIG with DANNY WUERFFEL!

What an evening.... with nearly 200 people attending to hear Danny share his inspirational story. Congratulations to Rick Hupe for winning the Heisman All-Ball and Ava Moore was the lucky winner of the Florida Gators ball signed by Danny. Proceeds from the Heisman-All Ball Raffle, benefiting the Bryan Youth Activities Fund, totaled $3,385!

Coaches had one-on-one time with Danny geared towards getting the most out of your athletes before his main presentation to the community. Afterwards Danny spent time signing autographs and taking pictures. If you were not able to attend, the BMU taped the event and it will aire on the local cable station.

Thanks to the community for your overwhelming support and we are most grateful to Danny for taking the time to share his story and inspiring the community to Dream Big!!
