To the Editor:
I have been a longtime volunteer for the Carrollton Little Warriors. In all that time, I have never seen people try so hard to convince others the Carrollton Little Warriors are no longer in operation.

The fact is, at this time, we are coming off our 35th season of Little Warrior football and cheerleading. We have full intention of running our girls basketball, boys basketball and our non-travel wrestling league through our winter sports programs (which are registering now). 

I am amazed how the few rotten apples will tell stories to promote their fledgling sports programs without intention to preserve that program any longer than it takes for their kids to get through it. We are not-for-profit organization which means no one gets paid.  Many times our coaches haven’t had their own kids on the teams they coach and we have an administrator that has volunteered over 20 years of services. That is what makes a special.

I will be part of the Carrollton Little Warriors as long as they will have me because it is a pleasure to be around people who do things out of the goodness of their hearts and don’t base things on the size of their wallets.

To all the people who have been lied to, you must start to consider the source and decide whether you can trust those people.

I am a 16-year volunteer and am proud to have coached and served this community.
