On a day when elementary school students were awarded for their display of sportsmanship, members of the Presentation College Football Program were on hand to recognize their efforts. Saints Head Football Coach Andy Carr and three members of his team took part in a monthly event held at O.M. Tiffany Elementary School in Aberdeen. Each month, the school incorporates a certain trait, such as citizenship, respect, responsibility, and this month, sportsmanship, into their curriculum.
Coach Carr addressed the group of students, faculty, and staff on what sportsmanship means to him and how he employs that in his day to day coaching of the game of football. "It was a great opportunity to spend some time with the kids and discuss how hard work and dedication get us through our weekly routine. They were attentive and enjoyed seeing us there."
Coach also brought along 3 starters from this year's squad. Seniors Cullen O'Brien and Sean Haderlie, along with Junior Stephen Braswell each had an opportunity to address the assembly and share their thoughts on the definition of sportsmanship. "It was fun and the kids definitely paid attention" said Haderlie. "I was glad we were given a chance to speak to them."
