MinuteClinic, USA Football to honor and award football team moms this fall

MinuteClinic, the walk-in medical clinic inside CVS/pharmacy® and official sports physical provider and retail drug store partner of USA Football, is recognizing and rewarding football team moms across the country this fall.

Football moms hold important responsibilities and MinuteClinic wants to celebrate the accomplishments of these sometimes unnoticed team members.

Youth and high school coaches and parents are encouraged to nominate deserving football moms. Moms can also apply on their own as well by filling out a short online questionnaire.    

“I think it’s awesome that USA Football and MinuteClinic are recognizing football moms,” said Kim Brown of Kansas City, Kan., a coach’s wife and mom of five with three boys playing football.  “Moms may never score the winning touchdown or make that game-saving tackle, but we are practice-driving, snack-packing, jersey-washing, pant-scrubbing experts that cherish every moment on and off the field of just being a mom.”

A microsite with more information about the program can be found at

“Football moms have a significant role in keeping every football family together,” USA Football executive director Scott Hallenbeck said. “We’re proud to stand with MinuteClinic to recognize and honor them on a national level.”

USA Football and MinuteClinic will select 100 outstanding football team moms from across the country and award them with a Team Mom t-shirt, cooler bag, game day accessory kit and a $20 CVS gift card.  Ten (10) finalists will be selected by an online vote to compete for the Team Mom of the Year Award, which includes a $5,000 equipment grant, a $500 spa gift certificate and a Team Mom of the Year jersey.  Each of the 10 finalists also will receive a $1,000 equipment grant as well as a $100 gift card from Sports Authority.

Field Dedicated in Honor of Community Leader

CLEVELAND — Dozens turned out for a special dedication on the city’s east side Sunday morning.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, along with other city leaders, dedicated the Lonnie Burten Recreation Field in honor of Dwayne Browder.

The field is home to Cleveland Muny Football League’s CMHA/Lonnie Burten Organization. Browder has served as the leader of the organization for 22 years.

Browder was also recognized Sunday for his leadership with the youth in local neighborhoods. He says the league helps fight a rising epidemic.

“We’re losing a battle with a lot of kids and teenagers today, and if someone doesn’t step up and help them, this thing can get even worse, and we’re not trying to let it get worse, we’re trying to get it better,” said Browder.

Brodwer says the league is one of a few in Ohio that does not charge children to play. He is hoping for some more financial support from the community.
