The Foundation is part of the Orange Bowl Youth Football Program. The Eagles play in one of its eight leagues, the Miami Xtreme Youth Football League.
The Eagles received $2,175 for expenses and equipment and another $2,500 to assist in sponsoring kids who play on the teams and their equipment, Mike Snyder, Eagles commissioner, said. Each player pays $155 to participate, which also helps cover costs of uniforms and equipment.
