Victoria Hurricanes honor citizens with disabilities at game

The Victoria hurricanes were at Patti Welder Stadium for some home action on Saturday night. The Hurricanes went up against the other undefeated team in the C.R.A.F.L., the San Antonio Assassins.

The Hurricanes had no trouble handing the Assassins their first loss, winning their third-straight game 60-0.

The game was full of highlights but perhaps the best one happened at halftime. The Hurricanes brought out around 40 disabled or special needs honorees to the field and presented each of them with a medal. The football team each took their turn meeting the group from the Victoria Association for Citizens with Disabilities. When the C.R.A.F.L. heard about the Hurricanes idea, the league owner decided to also present Olimpia Sauseda with an award for her work with the organization.
