STMS 7th Grader Wins Bills Gear


And the winner is… Max Reid.

Reid, a 7th grade student, recently won  an authentic Buffalo Bills helmet autographed by former Clemson Wide-receiver Sammie Watkins, and Saluda Trail’s own Stephon Gilmore, who was a corner back for USC. During December, Saluda Trail Middle School sold tickets for $4 each for a chance to win the helmet and support a great cause.

Reid said he felt “awesome” when he won the helmet. “I bought three tickets,” he said.

Reid, who plays football for STMS,  said he doesn’t know what he is going to do with it.

All of the proceeds  from the ticket sales went to Dr. Marshall to help with her medical expenses.  Dr. Marshall is a 7th grade ELA teacher who teaches on Team 7-3 . She had a double organ transplant at the start of the school year. Dr. Marshall, who received a new kidney and pancreas at the Medical University of  South Carolina in Charleston, was out of the classroom for 9 weeks.  She had suffered from diabetes for 22 years.

Mr. Hamm said the idea for the drawing came from Gilmore’s youngest sister, Savannah who is also a  7th grader here at STMS. Mr. Hamm said they were able to get the helmet signed through Gilmore’s public relations person.
