Outrageous Youth Football League's Season in Doubt After Trailer, Equipment Stolen
A Colorado youth football program is sidelined after a trailer filled with equipment was stolen.
Lafayette Bobcats Football Organization team officials reported the missing trailer to police Saturday morning, hours before an annual party.
The trailer contained more than $150,000 worth of gear, such as helmets, shoulder pads, pants and jerseys, to outfit more than one hundred kids.
The organization provides equipment for children who could otherwise not afford the costs of participation. Unlike other city leagues, they provide 100 percent of the necessary equipment to any child who participates.
"We haven't even told most of the kids, because it's going to be a heartbreaking thing to tell them. We're missing everything," Bobcats board member Russell Machado said.
The Bobcats have set up a GoFundMe page. They hope to raise enough money to replace the stolen equipment.
