Wes Welker will be in Oklahoma City early next month for the opening of Welker Fields at Jefferson Middle School.
The Wes Welker Foundation, along with the Fields and Futures organization, worked to rebuild the football, soccer and softball fields at Jefferson and contributed $24,000 to provide all the necessary equipment for the fields.
Welker, the Heritage Hall product now playing in the NFL for the New England Patriots, will make the trip to Oklahoma City on the Patriots’ bye week to attend a community event to celebrate the opening of Welker Fields on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 11 a.m. The event will include games, a raffle and food, and Welker will speak to the crowd at 12:30 p.m.
With 54 catches for 688 yards, Welker is currently leading the NFL in receiving yards.
