$15,000 in brand new sports equipment, footwear and apparel will be donated to Brooks Middle School as a recipient of the “How Does Fitness Rule Your School” video contest. The Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation and national nonprofit Good Sports are celebrating their eighth year of partnership with a donation of $75,000 in brand new physical education and athletics gear to ten winning middle schools who participated in the “How Does Fitness Rule Your School” video contest this summer. Schools submitted a brief video demonstrating their passion for fitness and need for equipment. Winners were then selected by the Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation, with the grand-prize winner hosting a field day in early 2019 to celebrate the donation. The video production was submitted by Coach Dominque Love at Brooks County Middle School.
