Point(s) well taken.
Beginning later this week, a member of Mooresville High School football’s special teams will once again be taking aim to try and make just as much of an impact with his foot off the field as he does on it.
Senior Isaac Riffle, set to once again tackle all of the Blue Devils’ placekicking duties, will again be doing so as part of a Kicking Cancer Away campaign.
As a result, each and every point tallied by Riffle, standing six-foot even and weighing in at 165 pounds, will help raise funds for his most worthy points-producing efforts. Courtesy of pledges of various amounts designated for each point he scores throughout the upcoming season, the project will be used to benefit the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
Last season, as a junior, Riffle was among the Devils’ leading scorers for the season when also engaging in his fundraising project. Nothing is expected to change this season as well.
“ For the football season,” Riffle said via his personal online sponsorship page, “I hope to use my abilities on the field to help kids in need off the field. We can raise money for cancer research. Every donation counts. Go Blue Devils!”
Riffle is scheduled to get the official start of his points-producing performance underway later this week. Mooresville makes its football playing regular-season debut at home Friday night hosting West Rowan in a non-conference contest.
To help make the Kicking Away Cancer campaign complete, Riffle is accepting pledges of financial support in any amount based on each point he scores. Any and all wishing to make a one-time donation for the entire season are also more than welcome to do so as well.
Riffle is scheduled to take care of Mooresville’s point-after-touchdown kicks as well as any and all field goals made by the team this season as well.
