The Cougars from Paradise Adventist arrived to Forest Lake Christian in Auburn to find brand new custom jerseys, shorts, knee pads and socks waiting for them as well as truck loads of donated clothes and more than $16,000 in cash and gift cards.

All of which was pulled together by the Forest Lake Christian community in less than 24 hours.

"I've never been so overwhelmed by so many things I would have never thought possible, and this is one of the most amazing things I could ever have thought would happen," Paradise Adventist coach Jason Eyer said to the crowd. "Your community is awesome and we are forever grateful."

 

Forest Lake won the game, but new friendships were forged as the two teams posed for photos and enjoyed each other's company.
