Sportsmanship can go a long way
Wins and losses are nice when it comes to sports. But it’s really how you play the game that counts most.
There was a touching show of sportsmanship displayed at Bryant Field in Saturday’s eighth-grade JFL game between Princeton and Dixon. Princeton was leading 30-0 with a continuous running clock en force when the president of the Dixon League, Seth Tegeler, called for a timeout and met the Princeton coach at midfield. Some thought he was upset about the score or running up the game, but that was the farthest thing on his mind.
Tegeler asked Princeton if they would allow one of their players. Jacob Garland, to score a touchdown. Jacob is a special needs boy with autism and Tegeler was hoping to, as Clint Eastwood would say, “Make His Day.”
