First Ever Virtual Boys Town Booster Banquet a Wonderful Success

​​​​​​​​ Boys Town Student Athletes

Former Arizona State University National Champion wrestler Anthony Robles, who was born with only one leg, was the featured speaker for the 54th Annual Boys Town Booster Banquet which was presented virtually for the first time ever on Tuesday evening, April 27.

Robles' inspirational story and book, titled “Unstoppable," is well known due to his ability to overcome incredible odds in winning the 2011 individual NCAA national wrestling title at 125 pounds. Robles spoke to the virtual audience wearing a Boys Town “Teach Love" t-shirt.

As always, the event was filled with positivity and uplifting messages from many former Boys Town athletes, including a special video from Shaquil Barrett of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who recently won his second Super Bowl ring. Besides this year's Boys Town athletes, others recognized included the newest members of the Boys Town Alumni Sports Hall of Fame. Those streaming the event also heard a performance by the Boys Town Voices choir. Watch the entire event below.

The Boys Town Boosters were formed more than 50 years ago to ensure that any child who is at Boys Town has the opportunity to play sports. Every year, the Booster Banquet brings Boys Town and the Omaha community together to recognize Boys Town's student-athletes and raise funds for sports equipment, uniforms and other necessities. This support of Boys Town athletics guarantees youth have an outlet where they can have fun and learn valuable life lessons. 

We would like to thank all of our sponsors and everyone who watched the virtual banquet and made donations or bid on auction items. We hope to see you at next year's event, in person, on Tuesday, April 26, 2022. And it isn't too late to still make a donation this year. If you are interested in donating, learning more about the Boosters, or would like to join, please email Herb Hames at herb.hames@boystown.org.


Thank you to our generous sponsors!
