400 "Boys of Promise"

50 Former College and NFL PLayers

1 Amazing Transformational Day

Will You Join Us?

The Angel Tree Football Clinic @ Stanford is a one-day event, held annually at Stanford University.  The event brings together 7-13 year old “boys of promise” who have a number of extreme risk factors present in their lives, with high character,  former college and NFL Football Stars for a day of fun, mentoring and encouragement.  The 2013 Clinic will have  400 boys participating from around the Bay Area and as faraway as Fresno and Sacramento.  A minimum of 50 former College and NFL players are needed to serve as Volunteer Coaches for this event. What does it take to be a Volunteer Coach?

Can you give a kid an encouraging word?  Can you slap him a "High Five" when  he makes the catch or pat him on the back and tell him "Great Try You'll Get it Next Time" when he doesn't.   Then you've got the most important role of the Volunteer Coach down pat!  The next part; remember those position drills that our coaches back in College or the NFL use to make us do over and over again?  "Getting back to the basics"  they called it!  Hand-offs, pitch and catch, lineman shuffle drills, tipped pass drills, fumble drills, stances, get-off drills, yep you remember!  For us they were drudgery, but they helped us to  sharpen the fundamental skills that we needed in order to shine on Saturdays or Sundays!  For these boys, doing those same drills led by "Legends of the Game", like you, are fun, fun, fun unbounded!  Throw in some verbal encouragement,  a fist bump or two and a little bit of levity and you have a recipe for a happy, encouraged and inspired kid.  One Mom told me after last year's Clinic, that this was the first time she'd seen her twelve year old son laugh and smile in over six months. Turns out that six month prior, he had seen his older brother gunned down in a drive by shooting.  Many of our boys come from environments where encouragement, up-lift and hope are in short supply; their spirits can be very low and their self-esteem even lower. But on Angel Tree Football Clinic Day, it is their day and as our clinic theme states, it is all about "Lifting Them Up"!  So what's the role of Volunteer Coach?  Encourager, Friend, Inspiration...our job: teach 'em a little bit of football, give them a great time and lift them up... because sometimes when you lift a kid up just a little bit,  they discover the freedom and courage to  Fly Like on Wings of Eagles!
We need your help!  Sign-up to Join us on Sunday, August 25, 2013 as a Volunteer Coach for the 7th Annual Angel Tree Football Clinic @ Stanford University

William "Billy" Anderson is the Co-Founder/Football & Coaching Director of the Angel Tree Football Clinic at Stanford.  He is the Vice President, U.S. Operations for Children of Grace and a former Regional Executive Director with Prison Fellowship.  "Billy", as his friends and former teammates call him,  is a former Stanford Runningback and Kick Returner, and was a key member of the two-time Bowl Champion and Nationally ranked Cardinal Football teams of 1977 and 1978.  He was the Cardinal Special Teams Captain and the Stanford Football Unsung Hero Award winner in 1978.

Together with colleague Joe Avila (Regional Director, Western U.S., Prison Fellowship) he saw the need to create a positive experience for at-risk and underserved Boys in Northern and Central California.  Thus, in 2005, with the help and partnership of the late Coach Ben Parks, Prison Fellowship and the Stanford University Football program, Billy and Joe co-founded the Angel Tree Football Clinic at Stanford.  The goal of the ATFC is to bring  high caliber, high character former college and pro footballers together with at-risk youth for an annual day of fun, mentoring and encouragement!
