  1. This is an incredible event that showcases how football is more than a game. So many kids from so many schools coming together to help make others see they are loved and valued.

  2. If you haven’t seen a Victory Day event before, you need to! I’ve been to one at Trenton, Toledo and Dundee and every time I teared up. Seeing high school rivals working together to help these amazing young people with disabilities enjoy the game of football is priceless.

    Random question: I recently read another article in the Monroe Evening News about Dundee’s AD and his part in promoting a young man with Autism to be apart of the Flat Rock football team. Is Mr. Oestrike, Ms. Salenbien, or Dundee’s coach special ed teachers by any chance? I’m surprised that more schools aren’t doing this.

    Win or lose on Friday nights, this is a pretty cool thing Dundee is doing. I like how other schools such as my Falcons and other area teams are now sending their team captains to be apart of this. Promoting inclusion in communities and teaching these young men valuable life lessons.

    Props to Tommy Oestrike, Kim Salenbien, Kyle Mac and his players for making this happen every year. I think Monroe County Special Olympics Group helps too. As a special education teacher, events like this make me so proud to be apart of the profession.
