Righetti High School football players are working hard this week as they prepare for a game against the Knights and perform invaluable community outreach.

About 15 varsity Warriors on Thursday (Sept. 25) and Coach Ed Herrmann plan to spend time with students at nearby Ralph Dunlap Elementary School and participate in recess/lunch activities. The players will work with the youngsters to promote participation in recess activities, physical fitness, study habits, self-discipline and responsibility. Team members will wear their jerseys and be there from noon to 1:15 p.m.

“It is a great opportunity to reach out to local kids to show them a positive role model and have a lot of fun with them at the same time,’’ said receiver and defensive back Austin Stout, Class of 2015.

Coach Herrmann knows participating in community outreach is an important part of what being a student athlete is all about.

“It teaches our players the value of community service,’’ said Herrmann, who also performed similar outreach as a player during high school in Philadelphia. “We know the younger students look up to high school students and athletes. This shows the community that our athletes are role models – not just on Friday nights.’’
