How Boxing Saved My Life: Mentoring Youth Through Sports
AIR DATE: August 15, 2012
Steven Call knows about tough love. He used to be a boot camp drill instructor for juvenile felons. Now, he runs a boxing club. And his athletes deal with everything: drug addiction, prison time, homelessness. But boxing is "just a tool" to help them, he says. The real work comes outside the gym, in the hours he spends getting them housing, or listening to their problems. So how did sports change your life? We talk with coaches around Las Vegas who are using athletics to help youth.
