Danny and Lyle discussed the Benton Harbor (MI) football team and their recent visit to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. Lyle had just returned form the trip and was excited to talk about it. If you remember the Benton arbor Varsity football team finished an historic season by making the playoffs for the first time in school history and overcame 4 wins in the past eight years. The team received national attention and was given a trip to Walt Disney World on Good Morning America in November.
The kids really enjoyed the trip and most of them (32 of 35) have never been on a plane before. The kids were gracious and respectful. When they walked into the Magic Kingdom for the first time they looked as though they had just seen Heaven.
Hard work and discipline can sometimes pay off in a big way. We may not have wished upon a star but several stars did achieve a dream.
