Goodbye helmet, pads; high school football players try tailored suits instead

Boynton Beach High football players suited up last weekend, but no pads or helmets were in sight. These suits had lapels and are to be worn with something other than cleats.

An organization called Suits for Seniors delivered the tailored attire to 20 boys who completed an eight-week program that hits on lessons of leadership, healthy lifestyles and more. For more about the program and who’s been helped so far, read this story from Palm Beach Post’s Boynton Beach reporter Alexandra Seltzer.
