Members of the Cardinal High School Football team from Middlefield were on a canoe trip a few weeks ago along the Cuyahoga River. While traveling along the river, they came upon an elderly couple in distress near Hiram. The man had been treading water for 20 minutes, the woman was in the boat holding onto a branch. They were apparently stuck on the rocks. So, some of the team members jumped in and saved them.
The couple wrote a letter to the school letting them know how grateful they both were.
