Sports is an exceptional teacher. It can give life lessons, provide access to the world, and bring good people together to do good things. It can be the vehicle for love of the games, the people, and the planet. This video is two Washington-Lee Generals, talking about why and how sports can be used to improve lives, improve families, and improve communities. From the student-athlete, the scholar-athlete, and why coaches and parents do what they do for them, LovePrints conversations hopes to add to what you know, express how you feel, and ask questions about the games we play.
