Leadership within any organization is key to its strength and sustainability. Cuero ISD athletics is an example of that with a high school course dedicated to building leaders.
Currently, they are going through the book, “Chop Wood Carry Water: How to Fall in Love with the Process of Becoming Great” by Joshua Medcalf.”
“It’s teaching us about this guy’s journey and the hardships that he goes through,” CHS senior Caleb Vernor said. “Every Friday, we split up and get together with the team and talk together, share some stories that relate to the book. We make a better bond between all of us.”
Along with becoming closer as a team away from football, the student-athletes involved in the class visit younger students in the school district. Recently, they went by Hunt Elementary.
“When we got over there, everybody got assigned to their own classroom,” Utah Jalufka said. “We started talking to them [elementary students] and helped them with their math facts. They asked us some questions about football. It was a really fun experience just getting to talk to the younger kids.”
