I just wanted to take a minute to thank you personally for the donation of a signed Rex Ryan Football to our gift auction. I am very excited to add it to the auction I am sure it will garner a great deal of enthusiasm and ultimately funds for our foundation.I was just on your website and then FB page and I am so impressed with what you do for today’s youth. As a fellow, albeit at a MUCH lower level, athlete I am all too familiar with the benefits of Athletics on the lives of our youth. Your mission is a proud and necessary one. Thanks for all you do, and for your support of my cause.If I can ever repay the favor don’t hesitate to ask.
Brian A. Flaherty, Denise Marie Flaherty Mem. Foundation Inc., President 2013
“I wish to once again thank Damian and Darian for giving our young people a wonderful experience this past Wednesday. The young people truly had a great time and the rain did not damper their spirits. Look forward to discussing some possibilities with you guys in the fall. Once again, thank you!”

“I had a great time at Damian’s camp this year. It’s such a joy to see players that have done and been through so much still come back and help the youth. To see so many former guys I played with and against on the gridiron, join forces to give back to the community, not because they have to but because they want to, was a great feeling of purpose. The way those kids listened and were attentive to the knowledge was very inspiring to know that the youth can and will have a future. Keep it up My Brotha, The World and the Community need more like you!”

“My experience with GridIron Group, has been a blessing, a learning experience, inspiring, and a joy to be apart of. The Love and Passion that GridIron’s founder and President Damian Gregory has for everything he does is palpable, just being around him you can feel his emotion for the growth and education of the kids, the city of Lansing, Sexton H.S., and his firm belief in using Football and other sports as a tool to achieve other goals and become more successful in the game of life. I really enjoy having the opportunity to teach the kids some of the lessons I’ve learned over the years of being involved in sports, and hope that I gave each of them something to hold on to, remember and learn from.

I am grateful for them taking the time out of their summer and coming to a football camp and fighting through the heat because they didn’t have to be there but they wanted to be and they competed through everything I or any of the other coaches threw at them. Though they came to learn from me, I also learned a lot from them. Once again I’d like to thank Damian and GridIron Group.”

“I am very proud to be a partner and affiliate with GridIron G.A.N.G. Inc. With so many opportunities available for our youth to go astray and get in to destructive behaviors it was awesome to get together a group of professional athletes, coaches, and speakers to work with children from all backgrounds to inspire our youth first, through  Hard Work & Discipline, and to dream, and to dream big. I really enjoyed the experience and can’t wait until the next.”
