What a great story of sportsmanship

Amid all the steroid scandals, I came across this story of uncommon sportsmanship. What a story and a lesson to teach young athletes about the true importance of sports - caring about teammates, respecting your opponents, and building character that will extend beyond the court. Nowadays, talented kids are being plucked out of junior high and groomed to be superstars in college and beyond without ever getting to experience the simple joy of playing a friendly high school game. I'd much rather root for kids like Darius McNeal and Johntel Franklin than spoiled millionaires who cheat or behave badly.
