After finishing the season undefeated, and while they are in the midst of playoffs, the Oakland Football team turned its attention to a member of the Oakland family. On Friday night, during the halftime of the first round playoff game against Wilson Central HS, Oakland Football donated $1000 to the Devin Cairo Benefit Fund. The funds were raised at a homecoming dance earlier in the year.
Oakland Endzone Club officers John Jones, Charlie Yates, Jeff Hawkins, and Jim Dibble made the presentation to Devin’s sister, Alexia. Tyler Black, a member of the varsity team, is also on hand to make the presention. Several members of the Oakland baseball team stood with Alexia as she accepted the donation.
