I don’t think I have ever been prouder than I am of my Jessamine County community on Monday, September 19, 2016.  West Jessamine High School Girls Soccer Boosters hosted the annual “Kick it to Cancer” soccer game and event between East and West Jessamine girls high school soccer teams.  This year it was at West Jessamine and all funds collected went to help former Storm Soccer Player & Current East Jessamine soccer player Kylee Tyson who is battling one of the rarest forms of Leukemia.  Kylee has already endured more than most people could imagine. The whole community came together and raised over $1,500 in silent auction and the goal-a-thon. That’s not counting concessions and donations.

Before the varsity game, Kaitlyn Maricle and Drew Welch representing JYSA presented the Tyson family with a check from the “Kickin’ It with Kylee 3v3 event we hosted this summer. When I introduced Kylee and her family, the entire stadium, which was packed, gave Kylee a standing ovation.  They were standing just a few feet from where Kylee’s name and number were painted on the soccer field.

The theme for the night was “Pick a seat not a side. Everyone has Kylee pride”. The entire community was united. While this was a district rivalry game, the soccer game itself took a back seat. #noonefightsalone

Thank you,

Bryan Back

JYSA President
