Roybal football coach Michael Galvan believes his job is more than about teaching X’s and O’s.

“Like any coach, I believe my role is to give student athletes the ability to be champions on and off the field,” he said.

That’s why he helped organize a holiday community service project that saw players, cheerleaders and A.S.B. members team up to create a hygiene kit drive.

They put together more than 150 hygiene kits to deliver to P.A.T.H. (People Assisting the Homeless).

The kits include toothpaste, shampoo, razors, shaving cream and feminine hygiene products.

The kits were scheduled to be delivered on Thursday.
