Ashwaubenon Football Coach Jim Allen watched his wife battle ALS and eventually lose that fight last March. When the ALS bucket challenge grow in popularity thanks to social media, the Jaguars decided this was a great way to honor their coach.

Head Coach Mark Jonas challenged his team and they more than exceeded expectations by raising over $3500 towards the cause.

As a reward the team had fun by partaking in the ice bucket part - and dunking Coach Allen and local sports writers and anchors.
