By Matt Porter

In recent seasons, football players around the county have worn pink gloves, socks, tape and undershirts during October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Dwyer is taking it a step further.

The Palm Beach Gardens school, the top-ranked team in Palm Beach County according to us and No. 57 in the nation according to Rivals.com, recently received a shipment of all-pink jerseys. It will wear the jerseys during games in October.

Pink Panthers. Of course.

Dwyer linebacker Hayden Harrow posted an image of the jerseys on his Twitter account. You can see that image here — or look to the right, as you have already done.

Dwyer senior tight end and defensive end Malik Brown said the team plans to wear the jerseys, along with white pants, in its three October games.

Brown, a Super 11 selection, will be thinking of a special family member when he puts them on.

“My Grandma is a breast cancer survivor, so when she sees me sack the quarterback in all pink she would be in tears,” Brown said. “I can’t wait.”

What does a football team look like clad in pink? Find out at Dwyer’s home games against Santaluces Oct. 12 and Atlantic Oct. 18, and/or on the road at Lake Worth Oct. 26.
