Theo Cribbs Accepts Award
Theo Cribbs Accepts Award

Ask anyone in Wichita about who the legend in youth football is, and Theo Cribbs is likely the most popular answer.  For that reason, a group of Cribbs admirers and former Bulldogs players and cheerleaders has started an effort to have Cribbs’ name immortalized in Wichita.  

They’ve planned a community “callout” set for Wed., June 16, from 7-8 p.m. in Grove Park to develop a plan to get Mr.Cribbs recognized in Wichita. They believe Cribbs deserves more than a name plaque to truly honor the work he has done in the community.

Cribbs, 82, has been teaching the youth in Wichita about the fundamentals of sports for over 50 years. 

“Mr.Cribbs goals has always been to mentor, mold, and uplift the black community in Wichita, and used sports as his means to do that,” said Lawanda DeShazer

The Bulldogs staff works with student-athletes age 6-14 on and off the field to make them stronger while developing valuable life skills. 

Notable Bulldog NFL Alumni are Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders, Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle, and former first-round pick Kamerion Wimbley. 

Registration for the fall Bulldog season is now open to the public. Please call Natashia Houston (316) 293-6225 or Theo Cribs (316) 880-1126 for more information.
