WLOX Editorial: Football teaches life lessons

Our congratulations to the high school football teams at both St. Stanislaus and Resurrection. The two will play for the state title in their respective divisions this weekend.  It takes a big effort and dedication to get through the playoffs into the championship game. These young athletes deserve our praise.

We view athletics in general as worthwhile for what it teaches young people; how to work as a team; being competitive; organizational skills; relationship building; nutrition; and leadership skills. These are all attributes our young people can carry through life helping to make them productive citizens in a competitive world.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
