Fontainebleau holds "Think Pink" game for breast cancer awareness

Published: Tuesday, October 11, 2011, 10:00 AM

FerrandoFontainebleau High School correspondentThe Fontainebleau High community rose to new heights in last Friday’s home football game against Northshore. The players not only fought strong on the field, but fought breast cancer by wearing pink shoelaces. In addition, the FHS Quarterback Club, in conjunction with the Zeta Tau Alpha Northshore Alumnae Chapter, handed out pink ribbons and breast cancer awareness information.

In support of the Bulldogs and breast cancer awareness, assistants
and cancer survivor Claire Carley work at the FHS "Think Pink" game
on Oct. 7. Pictured, from left, are Brooke Costanza, Abbegayle Phares,
Jasmine White, Carley, Emily Ingrassia, Ryan Grace and Marcus Kety.

A few of the team members have been wanting to do something for a while to support the fight against breast cancer because of a strong tie to a teacher who is a very recent breast cancer survivor, and others have family members with cancer."We have Ms. (Claire) Carley and now others who have cancer," said quarterback Conner Smith. "It’s a struggle, and we’ll fight and hopefully come out on top."Many of the team members, especially some of the senior players, have a strong relationship with teacher Claire Carley, who only last year was diagnosed with breast cancer and won the battle. Some of those seniors are Franco Centanni, Connor Smith, Jordan Bourgeois, James Kinter, Patrick Doyle, Jalean Brooks, Bobby Tyson, Jeremy Giarrusso, Jesse Barreiro, Randy Tumminello, Tanner Brignac, Justin Walker, Vincent Williams, Pierce Comeaux, Blake Coco, Aaron Parr, Ryan Hollis, Dustin Johnson, Jacob Simpson and Dominic Pizzitolo."I told them they hadn’t given up on me, and I wasn’t going to give up on them," Carley said.The idea of the "Think Pink" game was originally sparked by Centanni when he saw pink cleats in a store. After showing them to a couple of other players, they immediately jumped in and pushed for the idea of a breast cancer awareness game to be put into action."I am so proud of them," Carley said. "They epitomize the way we should live our lives. They make the most out of everything and don’t get discouraged with a bad play. They pick themselves up and don’t stop fighting — it’s what they taught me to do."
