This Viral Video Helped a Small, Rural School Raise $450,000 in 3 Months

The latest guest on the FNF Coaches Podcast is Brad Doherty, athletic director at Branson High School in Colo.

In December, Doherty launched a fundraising campaign for a new turf field in a small rural community with a dilapidated football field. In just over three months, he has led an effort that has brought in $440,000. They plan to have a $540,000 project completed by the fall football season.

Doherty scripted this YouTube video, which went viral and caught the attention of the entire nation.
