A Learning Experience For All

Noah Kittelson, center, counts down as Kevin Lazas, left, and Andy Turnbow, 9, a Special Olympics athlete from Huntsville, get in a three-point stance Thursday during a football clinic hosted by the Springdale High football team at the indoor field house at Springdale High School. Kittelson and Lazas, both track and field athletes at the University of Arkansas, volunteered to help at the event. The Springdale football team hosts the clinic annually for Special Olympics athletes. The team was expecting more than 300 Special Olympics athletes from around the state to participate in the event.

The man in the helmet took a handoff, then ran five yards before crashing to the ground after hitting a red pad used in football drills.
