Sheffield firefighters bond with community’s youth via football

SHEFFIELD, Ala. (WAFF) - Firefighters in Sheffield have a fun way of bonding with the young people in the community. And it all started by accident.

Firefighters were playing at Sheffield High School last Friday. They ran into some students who were also playing there, so they played together. Now they’re keeping the game going it to spend quality time with the community.

If you want to play, head out to Sheffield High any night around 6 or 7 p.m.

“We love to be out spending time with the youth of our city. It gives us a good opportunity to get some personal conditioning in while we build good relations with our school age kids,” the fire department wrote on Facebook.
