The joy of sitting in the stands at a high school sporting event is not keeping statistics, looking at the scoreboard or yelling at the referees.

The joy is, or should be, watching the joy of youth. Bad coffee and an even worse hot dog will only give you indigestion. Still, not even the indigestion or rock-hard stadium and bleacher seats can change one element: Some players play the game the right way on and off court, field, etc. These players have shown future generations on how the game should be played.
