"Teach them the right way to eat teach them that you have to pass your SAT's to get a good score to be able to go to college just to play sports and there's not just one side to this whole thing."

Two men in Lancaster County have taken their love of the city and sports and have created a new youth-sports focused non-profit. The official launch of the Lancaster Sports Association will happen on March 23rd with the help of Philadelphia Eagles running back Corey Clement and the Lancaster Barnstormers.

The mission of the new non-profit is to make sure all kids, no matter where they live, can play sports in high school, college and maybe even professionally. Lancaster city is charming and vibrant but the city streets are not the most ideal location for running the bases or scoring a touchdown.
