I cannot tell you how personally inspiring this story is.  Matthew Beeler, the Cypress Ridge coach is someone I have known for a very long time.  We first met when he played for the Texas Copperheads arena football team and I was working in their marketing department doing a weekly radio show.  We have stayed connected online through his coaching career and I am humbled by his latest act of selflessness.

Beeler, a former Katy Tiger, Texas State Bobcat and Hempstead coach has really raised the bar when it comes to putting others first.
