Before every high school football game, a sportsmanship statement is read to the players and over the public address system in the stadium.
Because it is long and there is a lot of noise, it is often not heard in the stadium and many officials choose to paraphrase rather than read the whole statement to the captains.
As football season approaches, I thought it would be appropriate to write it in my column so if someone actually reads my column, they will know what is being said on Friday night.
