To the Editor:

In the midst of the controversial crisis of the NFL and the national anthem is a feel-good story from high school football. The Rockport-Fulton Pirates, in spite of the cruelty of Hurricane Harvey, fielded a team of survivors and set out to play the rest of their season, all away games because their school and stadium are in shambles.

Each week, the opposing teams have exhibited the true sense of athletic competition-respect for the opponent. Seguin High School Band learned the R-F school song and played it at halftime. Wylie High School Pirates sent a contingency of fans to a game to support the R-F Pirates; both Pirates were winners.

Reporting this good news trumps the other banter!
