My husband and I were visiting Lewiston, Idaho, last weekend when we encountered members of the Madison H. S. Football team at the hotel in which we were staying.

The young men we interacted with were extremely thoughtful and polite. They offered their table to us in the breakfast area, opened doors for us, and pardoned themselves when walking in front of us. We have never before observed such considerate behavior.

We wish to convey our appreciation to the team, its coaches, the players’ parents, and the entire Rexburg community. While Madison did not win the football game, they are true winners in our minds.
