The Honor Group

The Honor Group’s mission is to educate students, coaches, and the community about patriotism while raising money for injured, ill, and wounded veterans. We do this by going into the schools of America with exciting athletic competitions, educational school assemblies, and community outreach events. These events raise pride for our country within our students, coaches, and community regarding the sacrifices of our nation’s active serving and military veterans. We see hearts change, we see people grow with a renewed sense of patriotism, and mostly we see the students and community bond with military veterans. It is beautiful to see and we are honored to be a part of this great mission.

What We Do

The HonorGroup is a group of dedicated, passionate and resourceful people who believe that our communities are enriched with experiences that involve the brave men and women who volunteer to protect our freedoms. The Honor Bowl, our flagship event, is a well-respected national high school football showcase. We do our best to pit the best of the best together that includes an educational element for students, athletes, coaches, and their communities.

Mission Statement

Educate students, coaches, and communities about American patriotism while raising financial resources for injured, ill and wounded veterans.

Purpose Statement

The Three E’s: Educate – Empower – Equip

Educate means that The Honor Group will play an even greater role in introducing American youth to the history of this country and the individuals and groups that give meaning to what it means to be part of America.  In addition, educate means that with the foundation of knowing our history, American youth can learn about the future and, particularly, their indispensable role in that future.

Empower means that The Honor Group is committed to the true empowerment of both veterans and youth to play significant and dynamic roles in American society both today and in the future.

Equip means that The Honor Group will not only work with organizations already doing wonderful work on behalf of veterans but will offer other resources in areas that are not provided.  Equip also means that American youth will have the backbone and drive to make a life for themselves, offering assistance but making sure that the young men and women do it on their own so that they can truly appreciate the sense of satisfaction and self-worth that comes from earning their way in life.




Our program had a tremendous experience and we would LOVE to be a part of this event every year. What a great message for our young men to hear!
