A friend sent me this link to a powerful video and story on one of our own, Courtney Hawkins (back in the day huh?) He is a successful high school football coach in Flint, MI. His team is in the playoffs for the second year in a row.

Video is 10 minutes long but wow!! Well work watching! I had a few tears in my eyes after watching it. Very moved by the man, looks like he really is trying to make a difference in the lives of the kids he coaches.

Great story.
So much negative news about NFLers these days - but this is like fresh air.

Thanks for posting.

Well said SteelfordWexler

More guys should be like him in the pros and after it is all over and they retire.
