In the injury-ridden game of football, safety is in the forefront of priorities for Susan Wagner athletic director Scott McBratney. His job became much easier Sunday as Investor’s Savings Bank presented the Susan Wagner football program with a $10,000 donation at halftime of its PSAL regular-season finale.
The donation will be utilized to purchase state-of-the-art equipment, specifically helmets and shoulder pads to keep the players’ safe.
The grant was arranged by Humberto Lopes, concerned parent of Falcons’ football player Myles Lopes. Through his business relations with ISB, he was able to work with their board of governors and acquire a grant.
