Cedar Park Timberwolves dedicate success to local boy

October 30, 2013 by  

The Cedar Park Timberwolves are celebrating success in this year’s football season. However, the team believes that one boy in particular is making the difference.

Joshua Edmondson, 10, has become an official member of the Cedar Park High School football team, although he isn’t allowed to play. Joshua has a rare disease of the bones, called chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis.

The football coach, Joe Willis, says that Joshua is part of their pack, turning up to practice sessions, present at the locker room pep talk before the games, and there to watch every game. Joshua is always there for the Timberwolves, even the official roster, according to Willis. However, he is unable to play a game with the team, as his condition causes his bones to break very easily. It was made possible for Joshua to be a part of the football team thanks to Cheyanna’s Champions-4-Children, an organization based in Austin.

The team players say they are inspired by Joshua, knowing that if he can deal with his condition, they can get on and play football. The team will no doubt require promotional materials for their games, possibly including Joshua as team supporter. Local flyer printing services will offer a reliable, low-cost method of providing details of games and mascots.

The Timberwolves were crowned champions of the Class 4A Division II, and the team’s website is currently emblazoned with a photograph of the players proudly holding their trophy and winners medals aloft.
