Football players are not just students they are part of their community. Another football program that is trying to help its community is Pleasant Hill.
The Roosters recently participated in the Pleasant Hill Optimists community betterment project called “We Care” for the fifth straight year. In the past players from the Pleasant Hill program have worked on cleaning up trash, building bleachers and painting a gazebo in the town park. This year the Roosters helped to build fire pits, paint shelters and bathrooms at the city park.
Like many other programs across the Metro Pleasant Hill is committed to being active members of its community. Pleasant Hill coach Kyle Roach said he tries to keep his players focused on what is in important. Roach referenced this quote from a football coach in Florida:
“Take care of academics in the classroom and character in the community and the football takes care of itself.”
