Golf outing to benefit scholarship fund


By Nancy Edwards

An upcoming charity golf outing event will benefit the development of the Fishers High School Football Alumni Club, as well as provide proceeds to the Trent Van Hoosen Memorial Scholarship.

The inaugural Tiger Football Challenge will be June 20 at 11:30 a.m. at Gray Eagle Golf Course at Brooks School Road in Fishers.

Fishers company RedLinxs LLC is assisting Fishers High School and head football coach Rick Wimmer with the golf outing. RedLinxs was launched in 2011 by three native Hoosiers: Kyle Redmond, Chris Redmond and David Redmond.

“Golf outings are a great way for charities to raise money,” Kyle said. “Businesses typically don’t have the necessary time or resources to plan successful events.”

Around 144 players are anticipated at the event, which will consist of the Fishers High School Footballl alumni, parents and members of the Fishers community who support the football program. The Trent van Hoosen Memorial Scholarship was chosen as a charity in memory of Van Hoosen, who died unexpectedly one morning last year before the Tigers were to play in the sectional championship game. Van Hoosen supported Fishers High School and youth football programs. Because of Van Hoosen’s impact on many of the players on the team, the players dedicated the game to him and his two sons: Matt, a senior linebacker for the Tigers at the time and Joe, a member of the freshmen squad.

“Trent was a real important person to coach Wimmerand and the entire football program; he was really involved with the high school and community of Fishers,” Kyle said. “The scholarship will be awarded annually to a football player from the high school.”

Dinner and a silent auction will follow the golf outing. Flanner and Buchanan will be the title sponsor for this year’s event. To help sponsor the event, play golf, volunteer or donate silent auction items needed for the event, visit
