I was at the Pizza Ranch in Alexandria yesterday when this bus stopped and about 40-50 soccer players and coaches from Pelican Rapids unloaded and came in to eat.

I thought to myself: it’s about to get loud and the buffet is going to empty out fast.

Instead, I was very impressed at how well mannered and respectful these students were.

Pelican Rapids should be very proud of how this team represented their school and their community. I wish I would have stayed longer so I could have taken a picture of the team to add to this post!

If you know someone from the Pelican Rapids area or school please forward this to them because this team and the coaches really deserves some recognition!

I was also amazed by Pizza Ranch for keeping the buffet loaded!
