We’ve always been told that organized sports provides structure for youth and gives them the ability to become more self-assertive and responsible.

Five players from the Syracuse High School football team have been arrested on 54 charges relating to a crime spree across two northern Utah counties. The strapping young men allegedly robbed at least 10 local businesses and damaged other nearby homes and businesses. Why’d they do it?
“”They started doing this, and they were successful at it,” said Deputy Davis County Attorney Rick Westmoreland. “They were getting money… they were getting a rush, so they just continued to do it.”"
