Tata and his football program. The funds will go toward supporting travel expenses
for the face off between the Red Raiders and Bishop Gorman Gaels. The Gaels are the

Today’s No. 1 Top Super 25 Team from 2015. The Saturday, September 17 game

Continental Pacific Partner Reynolds Henderson, said, ”What a great opportunity for
businesses to come forward, giving our state champs national exposure and an
opportunity to show their strength and school pride against one of the best teams in
the nation.” He added, “It would just be great if other companies could match our
$5000 donation to help the Red Raiders who give all of us so much to be proud of
