Conway High football coach Clint Ashcraft met with his team and told them, “we need to do something.”
“I looked around and a lot of the players nodded and were shaking their heads and said, ‘we need to go do that.’”
Wednesday afternoon, about 100 Wampus Cat football players boarded buses and headed for the River Plantation in Mayflower to help with cleanup efforts from Sunday’s tornado.
The players took a break from practice and offseason work to toss metal, trees and all kind of debris instead of weights and blocking sleds.
“We wanted to leave the place in better shape than we found it,” Ashcraft said. “If there is just one little thing we could accomplish in the afternoon, we want to do it. We wanted to help make a difference in one little area.”
