At the NFL National 7-on-7 Tournament presented by the National Guard
, Indiana National Guard Sergeant Kyle Anderson discusses the similarities between the National Guard's core values and football. "It's being a good person is what it comes down to," says Anderson. "If you have fun and be a good person you will be the one winning at the end of the day."
Anderson also explains that many high school athletes' initial perception of members of the National Guard are unfounded. "We are interested in the same things they are interested in, use the same things they do and are normal people, too," adds Anderson. He hopes that this will break down the barrier between Guardsmen and athletes so they can look to the National Guard as role models.
