Pee-wee football players showing off their pink for breast cancer

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

One of the last places you'd expect to see pink, but now the color is making it's way onto the football field in Daffin Park.

Pee-wee football players for Savannah's "Westside Whippers" all decked out in pink socks, pink wristbands, and pink numbers on their jerseys.

This, in honor of breast cancer awareness month.

Something that really hits home for one of the team's coaches, Alfonzo Hamilton. He says, "one of my aunts died from breast cancer so this is my way of giving back to the organization for my aunt when she passed away from breast cancer."

Another coach, Maurice Johnson says, "his family sponsored and donated the jerseys and stuff for us to represent the ones who he lost and the ones who are still fighting breast cancer."

All week long, coaches for the "Westside Whippers" have been talking with the players about breast cancer and how it impacts people's lives.
