Hilton Head Island High School is starting them young.
Every newborn at Hilton Head Hospital will receive a tiny football with the high school’s logo, according to a Hilton Head Island High School Seahawks Facebook post from Wednesday.
“It’s basically a low-cost effort to market the school to parents whose children will one day be Seahawks,” district spokesman Jim Foster said.
Each football cost $1.19. With shipping, the total was $440.79.
Money for this specific purchase came from gym rental fees and also from the World’s Largest Yard Sale, a fundraiser run by faculty and staff with no student participation, he said.
