How do you instill good sportsmanship in today’s youth?

“I try to lead by example — keeping a positive attitude and giving my best at what I’m doing.”

Terry Smallwood, Princeton

“Be honest. Be honest with yourself, the game and your competitors. Be the bigger person and help a player up if he is down.”

Jeff Lucas, Princeton

“You have to let the kids know that they will lose at some point, and that’s OK. The effort is what counts.”

Denny Boyles, Princeton

“We try to encourage the kids to participate, to play hard and to play fair.”

Glenn Smith, Princeton

“Kids today need to be encouraged and taught good sportsmanship. I lead by example.”

Cliff Morse, Princeton
