Trading Barbells for Shovels
Closed

The Head Football Coach at a High School in Pennsylvania sent out a notice to his football team...

"The weight lifting workout today is cancelled due to expected severe weather". It also read "Find an elderly or disabled neighbour and shovel their driveway. Don't accept any money -
That's our Monday workout".

The challenge was accepted with enthusiasm from the players and the community, with pictures and stories being shared on social media.


Things like this is what makes a really great coach and the compassion and care the team learned that day was probably better than any weight lifting workout, not to mention how the community felt.

Great way to help the vulnerable people in the neighbourhood and get a good workout at the same time.
