PROVO – Members of the BYU Cougars recently returned from a trip to Los Angeles, where they hosted a football camp for disadvantaged children.
The Saturday event, which was hosted by head BYU coach Kalani Sitaki and his More2Life foundation, aimed to give students from Inglewood, California the chance to learn through life mentoring, as well as educational and athletic opportunities.
“If I was in 6th grade you know coming up right now at that time I wish a college came down and gave me something to look up to,” BYU lineman Tevita Mo’unga stated on the impact of the team’s efforts. “Give back and change it up, you know, and hopefully change one person’s heart is basically what we’re trying to do.”
In addition to holding a football camp, the Cougars spent time serving food to the homeless.
This event follows a More2Life-sponsored trip to Harlem last month, which held similar service-oriented goals.
