The RISE UP! 159 project is a special program designed by the Atlanta Falcons to bring free equipment and flag football curriculum to schools in Georgia. Only 159 schools in the state were chosen (one school in every county). Thanks to swift action by Coach Popham and Coach Mitchell who submitted our application quickly, WCMS was one of the chosen schools. Randomly-selected students received t-shirts, water bottles, and stickers which came in the NFL Flag Football Kit that was sent to the schools of the RISE UP! 159 project.
