“First off, I would just like to thank you and the City Council so much for this wonderful honor,” Demby said. “As for me, and I think the reason why I stand here today, is because not just the pursuit of the sport of football but to create a bigger foundation for not only the people of Vineland but our young children for someone to look up to and motivation.”
