Jam 12 and Under Team Sponsors

You won't find a more perfect dealer anywhere. Coach McBride has bought every car he has owned since 1986 from Pioneer Ford. Just ask for Erica Walker and tell her George McBride sent you. You will be glad you did.

TDC Interiors is a complete stop for all your decorating needs. Carpet, Drapes, Wall covering, Tile, Benjamin Moore Paints and more. Ask for Jolyn and tell her George sent you. She'll make sure you get treated right.

Porter  Brothers Construction

Porter brothers, Dennis and Gary, grew up in their fathers construction business. Like their father before them they insist on building with quality and integrity. They build large commercial buildings, medical center, schools, churches, and more. They also do large tenant improvements. If your company has plans to build a new site or remodel an existing building, this is the commercial builder for you. I know, I have done sub-contracting with them for over 20 years.
