2013 - David Gleason

2013 - David Gleason

Each season the Victor Blue Devil Youth Football and Cheerleading board of directors has selected a member of our community to be honored for their contribution to our program. We look to recognize someone who has dedicated themselves to the success of our program beyond any personal gratification. Someone who has made a positive impact in the experience for the participants they have encountered. Year after year, Dave Gleason has nominated an outstanding coach or board member to the Hall of Fame.  What he values most in all of these great people is how they are solely here volunteering to give the best experience to our children.  This year, the Victor Youth Football and Cheerleading Board would also like to recognize Dave Gleason as a Hall of Fame Inductee. 

 Dave has been involved in Victor Blue Devils Youth Football and cheer for at least the past 10 seasons (although none of us know the exact number……this shows you how much of a staple he is for this program).  As the President of our program, Dave puts in tireless and rewarding hours, year after year.  He is at every football and cheer practice. All day at football games and all day at cheer competitions.  He works concessions, cleans up stands, announces games, cheers on the kids, works security at cheer competitions, actively participates in the AYFCL board, leads the VBDYFC board, hosts the AYFCL Championships, and the list goes on and on.  He motivates all of us to always put the kids first.  He might be a “behind the scenes” individual but he has a strong presence when it comes to the kids and making sure we all remember why we are here, volunteering our time to create the best learning environment for our children. 

Dave takes great pride not in the wins of each team, but in the character the organization, coaches and parents have built in our children and their teams.  Win or lose, Dave always reminds us it’s about learning and fun for the children.  As a result, we believe our organization is stronger for the contributions Dave makes to the program.  He is our backbone and he is greatly appreciated.  Dave would never nominate himself for this Hall of Fame recognition, similar to all of our other great HOF Inductees, as he is not here for himself, he is here for the kids of the program. With this being said, we are surprising Dave with this recognition and we couldn't be happier about it! 

Thank you, Dave Gleason, for everything you have done for all of our children over the past decade!  It’s a great honor to work with you and to have our children participate in a program that you care so deeply about!  It is with great honor that we induct Dave Gleason into the 2013 VBDYFC Hall of Fame.
