Cape Central Mom's Club the MVPs off the field

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The say behind every great man there is a great woman. So, behind every great team rightfully stands a great group of mothers.

"We were walking through Sam's and people were looking at our shirts like we were looking like some sort of sparkly football mom gang," said Larisa Brookins-Rose, mom of Lorenzen Brookins.

The Cape Central Football Mom's Club focuses more on sack lunches than quarterback sacks. These ladies play a crucial role behind the scenes. They game plan for which snacks make the trip on the road. Then quickly huddle over the dinner buffet to pass out the team meal.

"Every away game, we pack snacks and every home game we do this pre-game meal," said Joy Vinson, mom of Dennis Vinson.

Larisa Brookins-Rose's father, Laurence Brookins started the Mom's Club when he was head coach in 1999.

"It's so amazing to be around the boys, especially at a time like this," Brookins-Rose said. "The memories, just priceless."

The women fundraise all year, but as the Tigers have become the talk of the town, money has been easier to come by.

"We've got a lot of people recently have donated to us and are excited in the community about the boys going, so we've got people calling us to donate, which is nice," Joy Vinson said.

As they also appreciate these dedicated moms: the team MVPs off the field.
