BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Families are still struggling down in Fort Myers, Florida, and Louisiana is stepping up on the national level to help bring Christmas to those still recovering.

The Capital City Dolphins and the United Cajun Navy are using a football game to bring toys to those who are impacted by Hurricane Ian.

“My first that’s were that I was ready. Anything to help the kids out,” said semi-pro football player Travon Myles.

Players Travon Myles and Marlon Bates will be traveling to play on a national broadcast in a charity match against a Florida semi-pro team. It’s to help collect toys for Christmas.

“It’s to bring enough toys everyone there gets one,” said Myles.

This is the first time semi-pro teams will be nationally televised. The Capital City Dolphins will make history on Saturday.

“It’s not more of playing the game that we’re excited about. We are more excited about being able to go and make a difference and help,” said the Owner and Coach of Capital City Dolphins Tramel Tolliver.

Todd Terrell, President of the United Cajun Navy, said families have been struggling for three months now.

“It’s surreal when you start seeing the damage. And then, of course, we’re used to it here in Louisiana. It’s a different level over there,” he said.

Their goal is to give every child in Florida impacted by the hurricane a Christmas to remember.

“What we’re doing is, instead of paying a $10 admission fee to get in, if you bring a toy, you get it for free,” Terrell said.

Tolliver said he wants what these guys are doing to impact Baton Rouge also.

“With the crime in our area right now, we have more followers than leaders. So if one does it, I know the other one will follow him and do it too,” he said.

The Dolphins will hit the road Friday morning and travel the entire day to get to Fort Myers.

“They can actually see the ones who are helping them out,” said Myles.

The game will be broadcasted by Jim Bob Allgood from Redneck Adventures on Roku and on ESPN radio at 6 p.m.
