ESPN Team's gesture supports grieving opponent -ESPN Rise BOYSBASKETBALL

Quote:
"I did it for the guy who lost his mom," McNeal told the newspaper. "It was the right thing to do."


Womack, overwhelmed by DeKalb's gesture, wrote a letter to the DeKalb Daily Chronicle, which had first reported the story.

"As a principal, school, school district staff, and community you should all feel immense pride for the remarkable job that the coaching staff is doing in not only coaching these young men, but teaching them how to be leaders," Womack wrote.
A truely touching story.

Good to see that there are people who can be generous and not so self centered in sports. I think to often all we see is the pro athletes and the me me me attitude and not enough stories like this. Good for him.
