Outdoor education beneficial to CHS students, TV's 'Inshore Angler' says

Logan Weeks, 15, said he enjoys the course because it can help prepare him for a hopeful career with the United States Coast Guard.

During the visit, Pike — who has appeared on NBC Sports television programming and the Outdoor Channel — switched topics in hopes of motivating the students.

"Being a person is easy; there is nothing to it," he said. "But to wake up and be a great person and a great role model is a lot of hard work."

"America needs to change how they think about heroes," Pike said.

Although professional athletes can be role models, they shouldn't be considered heroes, he said.

Reserve that honor for wounded soldiers, he said.
