Hockomock Area YMCA Announces New England Patriot Kyle Van Noy as 2019 Legends Ball Honoree

The Hockomock Area YMCA is honoring Kyle Van Noy, linebacker and two-time Super Bowl Champion for the New England Patriots, as the recipient of 2019 Legends Ball Award at the 14th annual Legends Ball. The announcement was made at the YMCA’s North Attleboro Branch unified flag football team practice on October 24th. Van Noy is being recognized for his commitment and passion to the Hockomock Area YMCA’s Integration Initiative.

President and CEO Ed Hurley introduced Kyle to the unified flag football team saying, “We could not do what we do and have programs like this one without the support of others. Every year since we started the Legends Ball, Patriots alumni and current players as well as New England sports athletes have been here to support us.

Our recent Legends Ball Honorees have been Nate Solder, Devin McCourty, Rob Ninkovich, Matthew Slater and last year, Coach Brian Flores. We are honored for their support of our Integration Initiative. It’s my pleasure and honor to introduce our 2019 Legends Ball Honoree, two-time Super Bowl Champion Kyle Van Noy.”

Addressing the young people at the announcement, Kyle shared, “These guys right here deserve all the attention,” referring to the teens and adults of the unified flag football team. Kyle added, “Just look at their smiles. It doesn’t get any better than that. I’m so excited and thrilled to represent the Patriots and the Hockomock Area YMCA as this year’s Legends Ball honoree.”

The Legends Ball will take place on November 19 at Lake Pearl in Wrentham, MA. Proceeds from the Legends Ball benefit the Hockomock Area YMCA’s Integration Initiative. The Initiative was created to meet an emerging need in the communities the Y serves, recognizing the importance of supporting children, teens, young adults and adults with special needs and nurturing a community of inclusion at the Hockomock Y. Since the program’s inception in 2004, more than 1,200 individuals and families have participated in the Integration Initiative.
