We sometimes hear too much about what is wrong with youth sports. Even more, I often hear complaints about governing bodies that seem more focused on their rules than they are on doing what is right. It’s absolutely true that we need the rules to make help govern how we do things. However, this story out of Florida helps understand why the rule book sometimes needs to be tossed out the window.
Major props to Winter Springs High School and especially the Florida High School Activities Association who gave the thumbs up to a dying man’s wish in less than half an hour.
