(WSVN) - A Miami Dolphins Youth Program helped make some local athletes very happy.

The Miami Dolphins hosted the Junior Dolphins Spring Donation, in partnership with the NFL Foundation, and surprised a number of young football and flag football players with Dolphins gear, cleats and footballs.

In total, around $3,500 worth of football equipment was donated.

The Junior Dolphins program has engaged with more than 15,000 high school football student-athletes throughout South Florida working to transform lives and grow participation of boys and girls football teams.

“This means a lot to the girls and the whole community. I’m speechless,” said North Miami Senior High School Girls Flag Football Head Coach Louis Presume.
