    Athletes at a North Texas high school are taking their talents beyond the field and giving back to children in their community, and it’s something good.

    The varsity football and volleyball teams at Boles High School in Quinlan wanted to honor children fighting the battle against childhood cancer.

    The athletes surprised four very deserving kids with a goodie basket filled with Boles High spirit to make them feel special. Landrie Lay, Zachary Madden, Jordan Reeves and Alyssa Daggs were all surprised by the Boles athletes.
