Gabriel & Stephanie Mora were both born & raised on the South side of San Antonio, and currently both reside there as well. Today they run the Texas Revolution Youth Sports. We had a chance to talk to them about this dynamic youth program for kids ages 3-14 years old in the Southside.
Gabriel and Stephanie are high school sweethearts that have been together for 21 years. In 2019, they started Texas Revolution Youth Football and Cheer, as well as Texas Revolution Youth Basketball. The inspiration for these programs came from their beloved sister Patricia Mora who passed from cancer. They also own Lil Pookies Childcare, Broskis BBQ and Catering, and 365 Custom Design and Apparel.
When asked if it’s been easy running all of these businesses; they said.
“The pandemic was a struggle for all our businesses Texas revolution had to close for the season due to the city’s requirements, we started back up in fall of 2021 and had an awesome season with 3 of our 4 teams making into playoffs, our cheerleaders who all took grand champs and won several division category banners. The daycare center was able to stay open but with a lot of restrictions, and precautions to avoid from everyone getting sick, we went from 89 kids enrolled to 19 kids in a matter of weeks, we are one of the very few child care centers that survived the pandemic and have successfully been able to stay open and continue business till present day.”
Gabe said; “Through good faith and family support we have been able to continue to successfully run all of our businesses.”
Being around youth sports all their lives Gabe and Stephanie learned the ins and outs and what they envisioned for Texas Revolution. Texas Revolution was built from the ground up, and they had support from family and friends. What sets them apart from other programs is their expectation from the parents, and athletes.
Their motto is; “we look good, we feel good, we play good”.
They will be holding a fundraising event June 11th, 2022 at Mission County Park. During the pandemic, helmets and shoulder pads were in a constant shortage, parents had to go from store to store even trying ordering online and couldn’t find anything. Their goal is to raise enough money to pre-purchase helmets, shoulder pads in advance for their upcoming fall season.
Their advice is, if you have a dream, fulfill it! They love what they do and being able to provide business to the Southside of San Antonio for the youth. You can find them on Facebook if you are looking for more program information. Grab your tickets to their event, HERE.
