Card Football Players Show Appreciation With Service

bc-football-102.jpgAugust is always a hectic time for high school football players as they engage in pre-season practices and begin a new school year. At Boone Central this fall, players are busy even away from the field and classroom.
A number of Cardinals began community service work this past Saturday for local businesses that are participating in the 2010 Boone Central Football Card promotion.
Coach Arnie Johnson said this is the fourth year Boone Central has sold the discount cards, which can be used at various businesses in Albion, Petersburg, Norfolk and other areas. This fall, the coaches and team are showing their appreciation to the participating businesses with service projects. Players began by performing tasks at the Albion Pizza Hut, Subway and Fairview Lanes, and plan to include all participating local businesses in the weeks ahead.
Johnson noted that, while not mandatory for team members, any players who do one hour of this community service will receive the same credit toward their football letter as playing in one quarter of a game.
