For more than 15 years Queen Creek resident Adam NeVille has been an integral part of the growth and development of local youngsters in his role as president of the San Tan Youth Football League.

In July, Mr. Neville was named the first-ever Queen Creek Hometown Hero by Independent Newsmedia --- publishers of the Queen Creek Independent --- for his years of dedication as a volunteer coach, administrator and board member at the San Tan Youth Football League, among a host of other local efforts.

Independent Newsmedia, in partnership with the East Valley Institute of Technology, Queen Creek Olive Mill, and Sterling Services, is featuring a local Hometown Hero each month in print and online at yourvalley.net.

Also, a homegrown Hometown Heroes Award celebration will be hosted at the end of the 12-month submission period, honoring all Hometown Heroes Award winners of the Town of Queen Creek. The community is encouraged to join the celebration, which includes the acknowledgment of recipients and achievements.

For Mr. Neville, volunteerism is in his blood --- and staff members at the Queen Creek Independent, your hometown newspaper, have taken notice.

“Both of my sons have played in STYFL under Adam’s leadership. I’ve seen some stellar kids go through the program. Many move on to have successful football careers in high school and beyond. The players don’t just learn how to be equipped to play the game, they develop as people of character. That seems to be a goal of Adam’s and it is evident. He spends countless hours year after year to pour into these kids and it seems he wouldn’t have it any other way,” said the Queen Creek Independent’s Sarah Nieto, a Queen Creek resident herself.

Mr. Neville also serves on the volunteer Queen Creek Parks and Recreation Committee.

Food drives, clothing drives and other volunteer efforts in the San Tan Youth Football League he has helped with include an annual program to help families in need within the organization just prior to the Christmas holiday, with Santa Claus bringing donated presents and a monetary donation to the moms and dads to help with expenses. He was also nominated for Volunteer of the Year for the Town of Queen Creek and received the Good Neighbor Award from the Town of Queen Creek.

Mr. Neville serves year-round coaching and mentoring local youngsters throughout the southeast valley. Congratulations to Mr. Neville for exemplifying the qualities of a Hometown Hero.
