An Ohio high school football team is being praised for demonstrating heroic work, as some of its members rescued an elderly couple in distress on an Ohio river last month.
After completing a ten-mile team building canoe trip in late July along the Cuyahoga River, Cardinal High School football team members from Middlefield, Ohio, came across a couple in their 70s in distress near Hiram, located about 40 miles southeast of Cleveland.
Several team members then jumped into the water to rescue the couple. They utilized oars to get the man safely above water.
“Wasn’t exactly the Cavalry riding to the rescue, but it had to be that sort of feeling when our guys showed up en masse in our canoes,” Cardinal said.
The woman rescued by the team said over the phone to a FOX reporter that the young men saved their lives. The couple wrote a letter to the school letting it know how grateful and thankful they are for the team’s rescue.
“It’s nothing special that we did,” Kosh said. “It’s just something that I feel we should do as humans … just look out for each other.”
