Chucky Helping Local High Schools

August 1st, 2013

Chucky has never been known much for his local charitable endeavors, but Chucky still lives in Tampa and gets involved in the community.

Last night at Original Hooters on Gulf To Bay Boulevard, a proud sponsor of these here pages, Chucky, leader of his Fired Football Coaches Association, presented surprise gifts to three local high schools, as Ch. 10 sports anchor Dave Wirth documented.

There, he presented a check for $5,000 to each school… Leto HS in Hillsborough County, Gibbs HS in Pinellas County, and Gulf HS in Pasco.

With limited county funding, these 3 programs.. which are not among the bigger programs in the area… are struggling to survive.

“We made a big start tonight,” Gruden told 10 News.   “I think reality, awareness, getting your emotions involved is the best way to do it… People just need to know that these kids need help big-time… That’s all we’re trying to do, is give back… And get people to realize about reality, where high school football is.”

After getting the boot from Team Glazer, Chucky began coaching high school ball at Carrollwood Day School in Tampa. It seems his commitment to local youth ball is growing.

    Tampa2 has this obsession with acting like an idiot. I guess if your so good at it why stop now. ie “grown man wearing jerseys of guys 20 yrs younger than them, while chugging beer”. That’s a Tampa2 comment. I guess it’s some sort of insult or something?

    Oh let me make a comment relevant to Gruden giving money to local schools. Here goes. I don’t care. Which is as much as everyone else cares seeing how this section is flooded with comments about it.
