As the news spread last week about Campbell County Head Football Coach Justin Price’s son, Jack, being diagnosed with Leukemia, several local businesses have decided to show their support in a unique way. Through a partnership of half-a-dozen businesses, hundreds of “Team Jack” t-shirts will be given away absolutely free of charge. The goal is that these will be worn during Friday night’s football games.
Jeff Proffitt, owner of Classic Screen Printing, was heartbroken to hear of the news about young Jack. “As both a Coach and the father of three children myself – this really hit home with me” Proffitt said. That is when he started putting a group of business leaders together. The group he assembled now includes Classic Screen Printing, Shake & Bake Motor Sports, Elite Cheer & Gymnastics, Brown Ivy Boutique, Alco Builders, and McCloud Mountain Restaurant & Lodge.
The shirts will be handed out at Classic Screen Printing, located at 803 Jacksboro Pike in LaFollette, this Friday starting at noon, while supplies last. Additional shirts will be given out that night at both the Campbell County and Jellico High School Football games.
Amy Long of Elite Cheer & Gymnastics, one of the co-sponsors, said they “wanted to make sure that even if someone could not afford a shirt for this cause that they would be able to show their support for Jack Price. This family has given a lot for Campbell County over the years, and we are proud to support them now during this time.”
