Jets Give Back

The Jets gave a local high school $200,000 to install a turf field.

Morris School District will receive a $200,000 grant from the New York Jets as part of the National Football League Grassroots Program, it was announced Tuesday.

The grant, awarded by the Jets, the NFL Youth Football Fund and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), is part of $2.5 million in field refurbishment awards allocated this year. It will be used for the installation of a synthetic field at Morristown High School Memorial Field. This will enable the field to be utilized by 20 school- and community-based sports teams.

“We're very excited that we're able to give Morristown High School an artificial turf field through the NFL’s Grassroots Program,” said Jets chairman and CEO Woody Johnson. “This field will not only help the high school athletic teams excel but will benefit the entire area. Making a difference in our community on a daily basis, particularly in our own back yard, is of paramount importance to us. This field will enable students and Morris County residents alike to stay active and engaged in organized sports activities throughout the year.”

Morristown High School is the alma mater of former Jets offensive coordinator Charlie Weis.

This team has not been shy about spending big on players. Mark Sanchez is going to demand an absurd contract. It is nice to see the Jets find at least a little extra for a good cause.
