TACKLE YOUNG FOUNDATION VISITS GRAPE STREET ELEMENTARY
Through his Tackle Young Foundation, Rams linebacker Kenny Young donated $5,000 and more than 400 books to Grape Street Elementary School in Watts last week.
Khari Jones Jr. of the Los Angeles Sentinel was on hand to cover the it, writing that Young believes children should tackle their problems before they get older and become too difficult to handle.
"In my career, I tackle my opponents quickly before they get a touchdown; otherwise, it would be a problem," Young told Jones Jr. "With little kids, this is an opportunity for them to understand and be aware of tackling issues early. If the drama is at home, internal or the classroom, we are about to handle it early. Being aware of tackling issues early before they get older, and before the issues are too big to handle."
