A Sunday Feel Good Story – They Had No Fans

The basketball team from private school Vanguard College Prep in Waco, TX, recently said they would refuse to play against the Gainesville, TX, Tornadoes – a juvenile correction facility team. Their reason is not one you would expect. Give it a listen.

For all the stories we see about rotten kids, it’s refreshing to see there are still some good ones out there with open hearts and a sense of fairness. Well played, guys.

    Good story. Maybe it will give some of the delinquents some small hope that they CAN be good people.

    Wonderful story, Kathy.

    That small kindness may have been a life altering experience for some of those young men. I can’t help but wonder how different life would be for the Tornado kids if they had had the kind of parents the private school kids had. It’s tragic.

    Misty eyed, I agree CW. Acknowlegement and encouragement even when mistakes a4e made is REALLY half the battle as we have seen hundreds of times. Good find Kathy!

    How So UNBELIEVABLY Awesome, on the part of these youth, both the players and the student body of Vanguard College Prep~!
    There IS hope, and I hope that the compassion shown by Vanguard will help the youth of Gainesville turn their lives around~!

    Gotta agree with you guys – this was a good thing all around for everyone.
