Sportsmanship Plus - Girls Soccer

Spooner @ Hayward
April 30, 2019

The soccer press box is being replaced; so the public address system was not working. Both teams decided they would line up together and sing the national anthem. As a veteran of 23 years of military service in the Army and the Wisconsin Army National Guard, along with being an Iraq War veteran, I was so proud of both teams. It gave me "goose bumps" and made my eyes water a little as we all sang the national anthem together before the game. This moment made me extremely proud to be an American, and I was even more proud of the student athletes from Spooner and Hayward. A job well done by some fine young Americans!
