Highland Park has a reputation for sports and a heart for sharing.
The student volunteers who make up Replay Sports have collected hundreds of baseballs, dozens of basketballs, footballs, lacrosse balls and sticks, softballs, soccer balls and a few volleyballs. They also accepted the donations of more than 100 cleats and jerseys, dozens of football helmets and shoulder pads, golf clubs and tennis racquets.
Replay Sports collects used and outgrown sports equipment from attics, closets and garages and redistributes it to youth sports teams and programs where less privileged youth might not be able to participate for the lack of equipment.
Replay Sports was started in 2007 by Jackson Coon, Christopher Hipps, Thomas Gibbons and Caleb Robinson – all 2010 HP high school graduates. Then sophomores, the students shared a love of sports and a desire to give to others who might not have the equipment to play sports.
With the help of football coach Randy Allen, the students started Replay Sports. To keep the organization going year after year, the founders recruited younger students to lead the collection and distribute equipment after they graduated.
