Holiday Special, Sports: A Positive Life Altering Influence

  Broadcast in Sports

Call in to speak with the host

(818) 394-8507

Participation in sports can help keep teens out of trouble, though it's not guaranteed. Teens who participate in sports tend to have less time to get into trouble. Teen athletes also tend to do better academically and may get a boost in self-esteem compared to their peers who do not participate in sports.

In the last fifteen years, the rate of violent crimes among youth has increased by 30%. There is strong evidence that organized sports programs can reduce the likelihood of teen’s committing crimes. 

Bob Williamson is just one person that wished he became more involved in sports. “It would have made my life different. Put on a better path instead of winding up on the streets and getting in trouble.”

His childhood was dark and by the time he was fifteen he was an alcoholic; he attended 19 different schools; he graduated to intravenous meth and heroin use and became a hard core addict; he was extremely violent, carried a .357 Magnum, and became a dangerous criminal committing armed robberies.

This holiday special is one that will capture your hearts and provide inspiration. Bob Williamson shares his captivating and tear jerking story Saturday December 29 @ 7PM EST at BEYONDtheCheers on blogtalkradio.
