Director Statement

I grew up in Montgomery Village. MD about 40 minutes outside of Washington, D.C. It's considered the suburbs by some; for others, recently it's become a safe haven for folks affected by gentrification within the city.
Those who live in the affluent areas within the community benefit from the spoils of a suburban livelihood, others face realization of poverty, systematic oppression, and a burning desire for salvation.
For me it was about highlighting what helped shaped me into a man; which is Where I Came from+Football.
Watkins Mill High School which locally has a reputation of being the black sheep of MCPS, also made National news when they choose to Kneel for the National Anthem in protest of the police brutality which since the beginning of time has swept our country and targets the people that make up our school.
Head Coach Mike Brown, an alumnus as well; returned to his community following a highly successful Arena football career, to protect and influence and lead the the young men who walked in similar shoes as him. He's a living example of a success story in Montgomery Village.
Football in Montgomery Village is more than just a sport, the MV Chiefs youth football program within our community is a Juggernaut which has produced players such as Stefon Diggs (Vikings) and is a funnel program for powerhouses like Quince Orchard, Northwest, and even charter schools like Good Counsel and Bullis which recently drafted Dwayne Haskins attended.,
All the while, Watkins mill deals with the root of the issue and that's even though football is a relief from life for some of these kids, others it offers an opportunity to save themselves.
