My comments are in response to an article, "What a concept — to teach young athletes to trust in God and country," written by your writer, Corey Costelloe, in his X's and Arrows column dated July 14.

Thank you for the article on the character and integrity of Little League vs. the disgusting antics of the women's U.S. Soccer team captain. It was a shame that the value and talent of the winning team members were ignored by the press.
