BOYDEN—Former arena football player and coach Ryan Sloth met with Boyden-Hull Elementary students on April 16 and read several of the children’s books he has authored. Sloth, who was a cornerback on the Iowa State University football team, combined his lifelong passion for sports with his new passion of children’s books by writing a series of sports-related books featuring Sammy Sloth. Sammy learns life lessons along the way. Read about the author’s background and more about his time at Boyden-Hull Elementary in the April 19 issue of The N’West Iowa REVIEW.
