Violence, Trauma and Touchdowns-- Life in Muck City
Violence, Trauma and Touchdowns-- Life in Muck City New Operation GritBox Podcast Episode! Journalist Brian Mealer hops on the podcast to share the story of his time in Belle Glades, Florida. Mealer spent a year with the Glades Central Raiders high school football team. Glades Central is consistently ranked as one of the Top high school football programs in the country. The Belle Glades area has sent an extraordinary number of players to the NFL, including many in the first round! Absolutely incredible considering the chronic poverty, disease, violence, and trauma that cripples players futures before they can ever begin. Amazing Story, I choked up a couple of times in the interview because of the amount of trauma Glades Central players go through and how similar it is to the situation of the football players I coach at Castlemont HS in Oakland. If you are a Fan of young people overcoming adversity then you will love this episode!
