UPDATED: This story was revised to reflect extended drop off hours at Highland Park Middle School.
Highland Park student athletes are encouraging area residents to search their closets, attics, and garages for unused sports equipment that can be donated for use by needy athletes across Dallas.
The 11th annual ReplaySports drive is scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon Aug. 18 at Highlander Stadium and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Highland Park Middle School.
ReplaySports collects used and new equipment, then donates it to young athletes in the Dallas community that may not have access to much needed sports gear for various reasons.
Since launching in 2007, Replay Sports has collected hundreds of football helmets, shoulder pads, baseball cleats, golf clubs, and other sporting supplies. Beneficiaries this year will include the Viking Sports Association, Bridge Lacrosse, First Tee, and Voice of Hope.
This year’s ReplaySports officers are Rhodes Crow, Charlie Wilson, James Wilson, Ben Holsomback, Worthey Wiles, Cannon Thornhill, Ben Smith, Jack Sitzer, and Gabe Galbraith.
