Coach Cancels Football Practice, Tells Students to Shovel Snow Instead

A high school football team in Lucas, Ohio, had to cancel practice Monday because of a big snowstorm, but their coach game them an assignment so they could help the community during the snow storm.

Instead of risking hazardous travel to practice , coach Scott Spitler asked the players to shovel snow.

“Our kids understand we are pretty blessed with the support we get from our community,” he said. “We’ve got some community members who, because of health reasons or age, they could use a hand.”

The team then helped  to clear more than 20 driveways for free which was the best kind of workout.  In a tweet Monday, Coach Spitler shared several photos of snow-cleared driveways and congratulated the team for their work.

“Great job today Cubs, over 20 community driveways cleaned!” Spitler wrote. “Thank you Lucas for always being so supportive of our players, program and school!”
