Heart, Sweat and Sweet Potatoes

The basics of football are quite simple, put your hand in the dirt, focus on your task, fire off the ball and never stop moving your feet.   So how do you go from a good football team to great?   Writer William Arthur Ward once wrote “Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records.”   The 2017 South Granville Vikings Football team may want to consider having this quote inscribed on the walls of their locker room.   You might not notice it by looking at their record, or checking the weekly scores, but if you take a closer look on the back of their helmets you can see the reminder of days that didn’t go as planned.   October of 2017 was filled with those days, and will likely go down as one of the most memorable months in the lives of this year’s players and coaches. From football fields to farm fields and heart attacks to heartbroken, this group of young men took the opportunity to turn tragedy into something positive.
