Embassy Port of Spain brings football to at-risk youth for Diwali

The public affairs section at Embassy Port of Spain brought visiting Department of Homeland Security Investigations Special Agents Damón Foreman (center, black shirt) and Randal Hill (far center, white shirt) to teach the fundamentals of American football to 22 students from at-risk communities in Chaguanas—the most populous city in Trinidad and Tobago—on the Diwali holiday, Nov. 4, 2021. Embassy partners Can Bou Play Foundation, Community Oriented Policing Section, and the mayor of Chaguanas brought the kids to meet Foreman and Hill, and to have some high-spirited, healthy fun. Hill, a retired National Football League wide receiver, brought his two football championship rings and his authentic Miami Dolphins jersey for the kids to try on.
