“While these young men continue to prove themselves on the field, they are also taught other life lessons. These young men are also taught the importance of teamwork skills, a humble winning spirit, learning from a loss, spirituality lessons, and the process of being part of something bigger than themselves. They may be growing in the game, but we also want them to grow up and succeed in the game of life,” said Coach Michael Polk.
