The Cardinal High School Football team from Middlefield, Ohio was finishing up a ten-mile team building canoe trip on the Cuyahoga River when they encountered an elderly couple who needed help. The man was treading water and the woman was in the boat, holding onto a tree branch and they were stuck on the rocks.
Some of the players jumped into the water and helped get the seniors safely back to dry land. The woman saved by the team says the young men saved their lives and the couple wrote a letter to the school explaining how grateful they are for the rescue.
The teammates and the couple are planning to attend the next school board meeting where the players will be honored for their bravery. “It’s nothing special that we did,” player Parker Kosh says. “It’s just something that I feel we should do as humans, just look out for each other.”
