I posted this story on my Facebook page last night, and it’s blown up, with more than 500 likes, 43 shares, 39 comments and a reach of more than 14,000. I reprint it here … and repeat my thanks to these young men.
Call it another example of South Milwaukee student athlete volunteerism in action. Last night, I spoke to a local senior citizen who was concerned she would not be able to remove the snow and ice from her corner lot sidewalk. I sent Rocket football Coach Derek Hoff an email asking for help … and minutes later got a message back saying several of his players were already on the way. Jake Simuncak, Nick Honerlaw and Clayton Westrum stepped up. Really, really cool. Go Rockets, indeed.
