BOISE, Idaho — If you're a local athlete from the preps to the pros, there's a very good chance you have worked out and trained with Taylor Bateman and his staff at 'Off The Field.'
On Tuesday night, the 'Off The Field' staff hosted a charity dodge ball tournament to help one of their own.
Connor Cook, who just graduated from Centennial High School, has excelled on and off the field, but behind the scenes, has been dealing with an illness in his family.
In May 2018, Cook's mom Shelby was diagnosed with stage four cancer.
"Off The Field is like a family to me, not only do they get me prepared for the next level, but they are there for me emotionally if I'm going through something, especially this tonight, it just means so much," Connor said.
On Tuesday night, nearly one hundred athletes, including former Boise State athletes, came together and raised over $1,500 dollars to help with the family's expenses.
"We travel to Houston now for her treatment and none of that is covered, so it's really going to help us," Connor's dad Ryan Cook said.

Cook is headed to play baseball at Big Bend Community College in the fall.
