LHSAA Recognizes Act of Sportsmanship in St. Thomas More vs Breaux Bridge Basketball Game

Posted: 02-18-2014 | Categories: Basketball - Boys, Coaches, Parents & Students

Through its "Beyond the Game" Sportsmanship program, the LHSAA seeks to recognize those individuals who go "Beyond the Game" to empower others through sportsmanship or community service. This week, we wish to highlight St. Thomas More's boys' basketball team as well as that of their opponent, Breaux Bridge High School, for allowing a special needs St. Thomas More student to have such a big moment in his life during a game on Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014.

The video clip below illustrates that special moment for Matt Stevenson, a St. Thomas More High student enrolled in the school's Options Program, a program that provides modified academic inclusion designed to meet the needs of developmentally disabled students. Here, both teams show what it means to truly go "Beyond the Game" in sportsmanship.
