NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Three high school football teams are leaving the field for the streets to help spruce up North Charleston.

The teams from Fort Dorchester, Stall and Academic Magnet high schools are heading out Tuesday as part of the North Charleston Police Department’s “Tackling the Neighborhoods” program.

The players are cleaning up areas around the city along with school resource officers in an effort that’s part of a program to inspire students to give back to their community.

It’s the second year the program is being held. Last year, nearly 250 students participated.
