Kadin Adam, 10, doesn't just play football, he lives it.
As a quarterback on a Parkrose Youth Football team, there's always been something about beating a tackle he loves.
"You get to run the ball and score a touchdown," he said.
But this summer, there's a new end zone Kadin has his sights set on. He's collecting cans and bottles by the dozen and using the money to buy food for the hungry in downtown Portland.
Once he cashes in on the cans and bottles, he buys the fixings for his favorite sandwich: the PB&J. Then, with the help of his mother, he cranks out one sandwich after another.
With sandwiches in hand, he delivers the PB&Js to those living on the streets of downtown Portland.
"It's more than just honorable," one homeless man told FOX 12. "It's something he wants to do for a lot of people who are struggling, and I think that's great."
Ending hunger in Portland might seem like a tall task for anyone, but Kadin said he's just doing his part with his PB&J blitz.
"If we all pitched in a little bit, we could all help feed the homeless people," Kadin said.
PARKROSE COLTS YOUTH FOOTBALL PROGRAM
MAKES HISTORY IN 2010
November 13, 2010 Parkrose Colts 5/6th graders became the P.A.L. City Champions, beating Reynolds 12-6 in triple overtime. This is the first time in 24 years that the 5/6th grade has won a championship. In 2008 the 3/4th Colts won their first championship for the program with many of the same players/coaches in 2010. 13 of these 22 young men now have 2 city championships under their belts.
It was a tough start for the Colts this year, losing their first game to Alberta Park (19-14), and losing again to Reynolds (16-14) in week 4. That didn't stop them from earning the #4 seed in the playoffs. In the first round they faced #5 Grant (2009 Champs) and came away with an 8-0 victory. The next playoff game was against the undefeated #1 Alberta Park Panthers. The Colts rose above Alberta Park 24-14. It was a great at home win for the Colts! After that win they were off to the Championship. READ MORE!
