54th Annual Boys Town Booster Banquet

Each spring, Boys Town student-athletes are recognized for their outstanding accomplishments during the schoolyear. While we will not be able to come together in person for the 2021 Booster Banquet, our goal remains the same: to raise funds for sports equipment, uniforms and other necessities.

Join us on April 27th for a virtual event featuring special guest speaker Anthony Robles, silent auctions and recognition of our student-athletes.

With your support, the Boosters ensure that every child who comes to Boys Town has the opportunity to play sports. This support of Boys Town athletics guarantees that our boys and girls have an outlet where they can have fun and learn valuable life lessons.

Lori Mathsen - Boys TownStarting this year, a portion of the event proceeds will go toward the Lori Mathsen Competing with Character Scholarship Fund. In loving remembrance, this scholarship fund is being established as a way to honor Lori's 30-year career with Boys Town as a Family-Teacher and continue her life's work at Boys Town. Competing with Character Award recipients will each receive $2,500 for use in achieving their career goals.

About our speaker: Anthony Robles

Anthony Robles - Boys TownWhen Anthony Robles was born without a right leg, there was little hope he would live a normal life, much less one where he could excel in a sport as demanding as wrestling. But Robles proved to be an unstoppable force.

With limitless self-confidence and determination, Robles transformed himself from the worst wrestler in the city of Mesa, Arizona, into the 2011 NCAA Division I Champion, a three-time All-American and the NWCA Outstanding Wrestler of the Tournament, all while wrestling able-bodied athletes.

Now a member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, Robles credits his success to a belief instilled in him by his mother from birth— that he could do anything and overcome any obstacle that came his way. Robles has shared his remarkable story on major national media, including ESPN and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In 2011, Robles received the ESPYs Jimmy V Award for Perseverance and President Obama appointed him to the President's Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition where Anthony served from 2013-2016. Just this January, Robles broke the Guinness World Records title for most pull-ups in one minute with a 60-pound pack.

His autobiography, Unstoppable: From Underdog to Undefeated: How I Became a Champion, was released in the fall of 2012 and Dwayne Johnson's Seven Bucks Productions is now working on a biopic based on this memoir.

A symbol of perseverance, Robles shares with audiences his philosophy that courage and the tenacity to never give up on your dream can make you unstoppable, no matter how overwhelming the odds are.
