The Difference Between Boys and Men

Another great testimony of a boy becoming a man ... even though he is still a young fella.

Your players listen to you coaches - sometimes more than we think.

Hey Lou,

I just wanted to forward you some pictures of a boy on my basketball team that made a cake for a neighbor of his that has breast cancer. He's a 5th grader, a great kid and he is really taking to our talks.

After practice we talked about what it means to be a man.

We discussed how boys look to be served while men look TO SERVE.

Then we discussed how we can serve others. I challenged the boys to be men by doing something for others.

This boy in the pictures has a neighbor who has breast cancer.  He went home and made a cake for her and let her know that the team has included her in our prayers.

She was very happy that he had thought of her by making the cake and including her in our prayers.

This came after our introductory SportsLeader talk.

Take Care,
