Saved by Zero

I never played organized sports, but I did cover high school football for quite a while "down the street."  I found it to be a fun and rewarding experience.

Even though sports is not my thing, I do watch intently as the high school football scores scroll by at the bottom of the screen during Newswatch 16 Saturday Morning.  This weekend, I noticed more zeroes than usual-- shutouts.

I just kept thinking about all those kids, taking to the field every week, knowing their team isn't the greatest, but still willing to try their best.  And, after a loss, they'll practice this week and give it their best shot again on Friday night.

It's not easy, and I admire their persistence.

They are learning a valuable lesson at a young age.
