Reagan Milstein Foundation Community Football Day

More than a sport: Football day honours late scuba diver

SPORT means more than a result.

It is often hard to explain fanaticism or the love people have for sport to those who do not follow, or have no interest in it.

Every now and again there is something that makes it much simpler, and one of those things was at Tavistock St on Sunday.

The Reagan Milstein Foundation Community Football day brought together die-hards, Division 1 Three Cities League players and those, like me, who have never played competitive football.

While there was a winner it was not about the trophy: it was about bringing the community together to enjoy the World Game.

Reagan Milstein was community-driven and a football-lover who died in a scuba diving accident when he was 14.

The Foundation was set up by his parents as a way to both maintain his memory, but to also give back to the sport Reagan loved so dearly.

RMF ambassador Cameron Hanrahan said the day was about bringing Fraser Coast adults, kids and families together to "smile through football".
