The Dumas Demons have experienced great success on the field this season with a perfect 8-0 record. But, there’s a story behind the scenes which means more to them than their perfect record.
Earlier this season coach Dunnam was contacted by the mother of Bryson Thibodeaux, a 12-year-old who has autism and ADHD. Every year at his birthday no one would show up. Bryson loves football so out of desperation his mother was attempting to get someone to show up to his birthday party.
Bryson gave Dunnam an invitation and said “I would love for your boys to come to my birthday.” That started a chain of events that led to Bryson becoming an honorary team captain at one of their football games and the team showing up at his birthday party.
The story captured the hearts of many and in particular Josh Allen defensive end for the Jacksonville Jaguars who honored Bryson and the team with a shout-out video. In the video Allen addressed the team directly and said: “continue to be great, continue to aspire to be great and hopefully I might see one of y’all, couple of y’all, in the NFL one of these days.”
