In May of 2016, our son Micah Love went to Heaven after an accident over Memorial Day weekend. Micah was and is someone who cared about everybody around him. He loved having fun and being with his friends. Micah loved so many things, and sports were just one of them, but he truly loved sports.
Micah loved playing sports year-round. He loved the commitment, dedication, and practice involved in each sport. Micah loved working on getting better. Even more than that, he loved the coaches, teammates, and relationships.
As parents, we loved watching him gain confidence as he developed in each sport. The smile on his face when he made a play. The excitement on his face when he got his new cleats or got his jersey for the season. He was always asking right after school if he had a game or practice that night. Micah was a great teammate and met many of his closest friends through various sports.
Sports can do so many things for kids, and Micah would want nothing more than to make those feelings possible for as many kids as possible. Also, for as many parents as possible. We loved nothing more than watching our son do something he loved. Micah made us proud in everything he did, and sports was just one of them.
Micah continues to make us proud by putting it on our hearts to help impact as many kids and families through Love 11 as possible.
