High School Football Team Wins by Feeding Players Dinner: A high school football team in Burke County, Ga., has won the state championship after school officials realized that many of its players were malnourished and needed dinner. Defensive lineman Jessie Bush, 17, recalled that things were different four years ago. "A lot of people -- they was hungry, tired, and sleepy sometimes," he said. County family income is so low that 85 percent of students qualified for free breakfast and lunch in school and many go without other meals at home. The school's coach and nutritionist sought aid under the federal Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act and now provide dinner to 500 lower-income students for $3 a meal.
