We cover a lot of the nuts and bolts of college athletics on the blog and in the paper — the wins, the losses, the touchdowns scored and given up.
There is more to it, though.
The story of Kelsey Hodges and her involvement with a family from Sanger illustrates that point.
Some of you might have caught the story in today’s paper, but the basics are Hodges, a senior soccer player, met a family from Sanger with a child suffering from cancer. The family has a foundation called the Kick it Kodi that raises awareness of childhood cancer.
UNT is hosting a fundraiser for the foundation on Friday night.
Here’s the story: UNT to raise money for Kick it Kodi foundation.
UNT is off in football this week, which usually means that the UNT soccer team will draw a big crowd. The UNT volleyball team is also in town. Both will open Conference USA play tomorrow.
Be sure to stop by and lend a hand if you get a chance. What Hodges is doing for Kodi Tutt and her family is an example of a college athlete using the opportunities she has received in life to benefit someone else.
