The Key to Being a Good Fireman

Ron Allen, a retired Fireman and Assistant Football Coach at Louisville Manual High School, shares a fascinating story of how he helped rescue a girl from a train-car wreck years ago.

He comments on the virtue of perseverance and the need to build a relationship with the person you are trying to save. I thought these were excellent tools to teach the young men and women we coach ...

He is speaking to a group of Dads, young men and boys who belong to a Conquest Club in Northern KY. He generously drove up from Louisville.

Conquest is a National network of leadership programs, clubs, and camps for boys and young men 5 - 16 years of age. Conquest trains boys to become self-disciplined and confident young men, Catholic leaders who possess moral integrity and are committed to improving the communities in which they live.
