NBC News DFW reported on Dec. 17th that Jay Novacek, former Cowboys tight end, will host boys from Fort Worth’s Hope Farm for Christmas. This will be the fifth year of the tradition for the Novacek family.
“These are inner city boys that do not have a father figure in their lives,” Novacek said. For him, his father made all the difference.
Kids like 14-year-old Jay Royce get to benefit from the Christmas event. Royce’s dad is stationed in Germany, but with the help of Hope Farm, he has a male mentor while his dad’s serving our country. “It provides me someone to look up to and talk to and just kinda watch out for me,” Royce said.
