    I taught in a prison for youthful offenders. Would've been nice for something like this to have happened there.

    Great story, sounds like the whole town rallied around some kids that needed help. Awesome.

    I love this story so much. Thank you for sharing. I hope that one day, if I'm faced with a chance to do something above and beyond, I will RECOGNIZE the opportunity and act.

    We hear way too little of these type stories, but I think it's because many of us can't see how we can change the world. But given the path, we would. He is truly a visionary.

    It's the high school feel good version of the whole nine yards. To had burt reynolds couldn't be honorary coach for a day. But seriously, cool story and a pat on back for the faith fans and players. Very unselfish.
