This month, the 119 individuals that make up the OBU football team provided a much-needed service to Pleasant Grove School, Superintendent Scott Roper said.

They were able to remove old playground equipment, lay sod and put down mulch in many areas, he said. “We truly appreciate the hard work and dedication the team provided to our school and students,” he said. “The projects that took the team an hour or so to do would have taken us days or even weeks to complete.”

Roper said he looks forward to continuing Pleasant Grove's relationship with OBU and the football team.

“It has truly been a pleasure,” he said. “We couldn’t have done it without them; their act of kindness will benefit our school for years to come.”
