The Texas Vipers 99 team plays for the love of the game. They are one of the winners for the Fall 2012 Liberty Mutual Insurance Responsible Sports Community Grant. The grant will help defray the costs associated with attending tournaments in 2013. They used Facebook posts as a way to rally support for their efforts and they posted early and often encouraging everyone to post on their walls also. They also rallied the support of their community and received items to raffle off to anyone who took the quiz. Bettye Smith, team administrator said, “As parents, we strive to provide meaningful life lessons through sports as well as other methods. This grant process has given our players another tool for their toolkit.”
