2013 Mike Russell

2013 VBDYFC Hall of Fame Inductee:

 Mike Russell

 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. On behalf of the Victor Blue Devils Youth Football and Cheerleading program we are pleased to welcome into our hall of fame, 2013 inductee Mike Russell.

 Mike has been involved in Victor Blue Devils Youth Football for the past 7 seasons, head coaching teams in our C, B and A divisions. Mike’s philosophy has always been to first make sure the kids are having fun, teach them the game of football, teach them to be young men and respect themselves, their teammates and their coaches. If you have spent some time looking at any of Mike’s teams, he always refers to them as gentlemen and he always treats them like family.

 Mike has also been instrumental in supporting our program both financially and publicly. Mike always encourages our kids to learn and continue playing the game of football. Mike has also helped support our program financially through the securing of donations from Tambe Electric. Tambe stepped up and donated the funds necessary to replace all of our practice jerseys. They have been a generous supporter over the years and we are thankful for their contributions.

 Mike coached his last youth football game for us this past season. Mike led our A team this season against the toughest competition in the AYFCL’s highest division. It was probably one of his biggest challenges as a head coach, convincing our undersized , mostly younger A team, to take the field, week after week, competing against some of the larger teams in our area. Mike kept the team focused and energized throughout a very difficult season. Thank-you for all of your years, you will be missed.

It is our privilege to recognize our 2013 Victor Blue Devil Youth Football and Cheerleading Hall of Fame honoree Mike Russell.
