Students in Western Pennsylvania had a snow day on Monday, but instead of staying home or meeting for an indoor workout, these teens on a high school football team were instructed by their coach to get outside and help their neighbors.
Coach Brian DeLallo at Bethel Park High School near Pittsburgh, took to Twitter to announce that Monday’s weightlifting session in the gymnasium was cancelled—but he had an alternative assignment for the young men.
“Due to the expected severe weather, Monday’s weightlifting workout has been cancelled. Find an elderly or disabled neighbor and shovel their driveway… that’s our Monday workout.”
He also told the boys not to accept any money.
By mid-morning more than 27 of the athletes were texting photos to the coach, with some saying they were on their 6th driveway.

One of the students even reported that his elderly neighbors were not accepting their non-payment requirement, insisting on a donation.

“What better workout than shoveling driveways,” said Braedon Del Duca, a junior on the team who went from house to house offering their services with teammate Colton Pfeuffer.
“It’s just nice getting out here, helping out the community, just helping out others that need help,” Pfeuffer told WTAE-TV News in Pittsburgh.
“We’d love to do it for everybody that we can,” echoed Del Duca.
