Football was the only thing that brought the Thompson boys together. Before football was routinely introduced in thier life, the boys had this bad reputation of not getting along, fighting all the time and arguing over almost everything.
On a particular day, father Thompson brought the boys to the Jesse Owens Park in Los Angeles, a place consisting of a large indoor swimming pool, a gym and a stretched out practice field.
By the time, Tedric was seven and his brother, 9. The young boys initially assumed they were to go swimming until their father ordered them to throw off whatever they had brought with them for swimming.
Instead, the father said- ‘Let’s go over here. We’re signing up for football.’ And that changed everything. As soon as the kids started playing football, they bonded so well, leaving their father dumbfounded and contended at the same time.
