  • SUMMER FOOTBALL FOR ALL THE RIGHT REASONS



    Character: Doing the right thing when no one is looking.

    It may surprise you to hear we have had over 30 elementary and middle school kids from the inner city in a reading program this summer who will read simply because they want to play football. It may also surprise you to hear that our kids jumped over a grade level in 8 weeks! Not only that, the kids mentoring them also jumped their reading scores. The kids had fun and began to believe that they are capable of learning.

    Here is the sad truth:

    • Only 37% of the kids in our country are reading at grade level when tested in the third grade.
    • 63% are below grade level and there is a 70% chance they will never get caught up.

    Now just take a guess what the statistics are for crime, single family probability and hopelessness in a group of kids who cannot read.

    Take a look at the following short video to see why this is working: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1En4_...ture=autoshare

    We believe we are on the edge of the most significant reading/mentoring program in the country. It uses football at the earliest level to inspire reading and learning. It creates tomorrow's leaders at an early age, and it is getting results.

    What could be better than that?

    My PBP might be a little sketchy tonight depending on how many trick-or-treaters I have. I am still waiting for the audio to kick in.
