Needs Your Vote for Giants Hero Award

Meet Vincent Schaub, a students at Saunders High School in Yonkers, and a member of the Yonkers Brave high school football team. Last year, Vincent was diagnosed with brain cancer, and has been fighting ever since.

Vincent answered a few questions about his life for the award nomination. “Dedication defines having the “Heart of a Giant” because I believe that dedication falls in the criteria of all five. I am dedicated to football because I constantly think of how I could better myself to be better in game. I put the same effort into practices as I do into games which is of course, one hundred and ten percent.

“I faced adversity my freshman year. I was confident but did not know how I would fit in with my new teammates. it took a couple of weeks of not knowing a single person and being an “outsider” but then my teammates and I started to bond very well and they turned into my family. They especially feel like family now since they are always there for me as well as I am for them like playing a huge part in my battle with brain cancer.

“I enjoy EVERYTHING about football. I am very competitive so playing football at the top of my game is something I enjoy. when I get out on the field I feel that no one could stop me. I feel like I am able to be myself when playing football and love to defy the odds.

“I enjoy hanging out with my friends and spending time with my family. I like to play video games like NBA 2k and Madden football. I also like to play a various amount of sports off the field like basketball and baseball.”

Vincent’s family have also set up a gofundme page to help with the medical bills. The link is https://www.gofundme.com/f/hope-for-vincent.

Keep fighting Vincent, and we hope to watch you playing football for the Yonkers Brave soon. God Bless!
