    I would like to add my thanks for such an inspiring article. I hope these football players will be featured nationally as an example of the proper way to support & encourage fellow students to get along & thrive!

    What a great example! How wise to realize that love is more powerful than hate. This young man led by being kind and then everyone else realized that they needed to follow his good example. I think that we often spend too much time trying to correct misbehavior without trying to encourage good behavior. Maybe if we all spent a little more time in our lives encouraging positive behavior and attitudes instead of focusing on the negative, we would all be happier. It is never too late to begin. And as this young man knows, it all starts with each one of us.

    mightymite So it would have been better served if it would have been another Christian religion other than The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? Mightymite----let go of the HATE!!! What a wonderful story. And thank you to ESPN and the Deseret News for telling this story!!!! What a great example of how all of us should live our lives, and what a great message of how young people solved a problem.

    @ mightymite

    Some folks never miss a good opportunity to be obnoxious. Would be rather tough to know he was going on a Mormon mission, if the article never mentioned religion. Really really?

    A better approach just might be to help someone out yourself.

    What a great story showing what small actions can do for a person.

    @mightmite, shame on you for warping this wonderful story.

    ESPN did not highlight him because he is mormon. I am sure people of amny different religions participated. The original article never mentioned religion but the DNEWS just felt the need to take it there? Really?
