Elementary School Students in Morenci, Michigan Talk about their Favorite Sports

Morenci, Michigan

Story Narrative:

"I'm Jaden."

"Jaden, do you do any sports?"

"Yeah. Football, basketball, wrestling, and baseball."

"Lots of them. What position do you do in football?"


"You gotta block the guys. That's an important role."

"What's your favorite?" (speaking to another student)


"Are you going to try any others when you get older?" "Bowling." "Swimming? Possibly. Skateboarding?"

Part of the "Stories from Main Street" project--an effort to collect stories about small-town life across the United States. The project was the brainchild of the Smithsonian's "Museum on Main Street" program, an initiative that brings traveling exhibitions about subjects of national importance to small towns across America.
