Pilgrims News · IHSAA and Sportsmanship – The Andy Griffith Show


As was reported here earlier, the IHSAA is making a push for athletes and fans to practice and display great sportsmanship.  When teaching a life’s lesson to someone, I have been known to use various episodes of The Andy Griffith Show.

Andy Taylor was the Sheriff of the fictitious town of Mayberry.  With the use of great story lines, and even greater characters, Andy taught young and old how to be a better person.  He used his son Opie, his Aunt Bea, and his bumbling Deputy Sheriff Barney Fife to teach us virtues like being respectful, being responsible, and this episode about SPORTSMANSHIP!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  Here is the youtube link:
