“Unless it is in terms of an old Jerry Rice NFL Films clip, football and ballet are rarely put into the same sentence. Some high school football players in the Canton (Ohio) area, with the help of the Canton Ballet, are changing that. With the right ingenuity, it sounds like football and ballet can make a great – if unlikely – pair.” – USA TODAY, Tim Whelan, Jr.
