Ashley Teat is a faithful supporter of Franklin County youth and he needs your support for the Seahawks. Teat has been turning up at meetings and offices all around the county to seek financial support for his hometown football squad.

At a recent meeting of the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce, he said, “Let’s make Friday “Seahawks Day.” He suggested everyone wear silver, black and crimson on Friday to support the team and asked merchants to post supports poster in their windows.

“I was born and raised here so maybe that’s why I am such a big supporter of the Seahawks. We have to support our kids. We need your help,” he said.

He told attendees that the Seahawks spend around $20,000 annually replacing and reconditioning equipment.

A flyer distributed at the meeting said, “One common misconception is that there are plenty of funds through ticket booth receipts to pay for the football program. This is not true. Some of the monies certainly used for related bills such as officials, equipment, and they are also a source of funding other sports at Franklin County.  Our program is basically, what we make it.

For those who do not know the football program is primarily funded with money we raise throughout the year.

The majority of the money comes from sponsorship donations, family donations and concessions. The money we raise goes directly back to our kids in the program.”
