An example of this is the infamous Johnny Manziel, who inevitably believed because he was a “big shot football quarterback” he could get away with his corrupt idea of raping his girlfriend. Although I agree with this on a national level I disagree with this on a personal level. I believe there our heroes all around our community; one person I see as my hero is my brother. My brother is a paramedic/EMT and a volunteer firefighter. He dedicates everyday of his life to ensuring the safety of others and helping those in need when they are sick and hurting.
Bo jackson was a epic hero by today's standards. He was born in raised in alabama, he was picked on for a stutter he had developed, and was known for his outstanding feats in sports.

Another heroic trait he

To that, Odysseus replies, “How sound that was! Yet I refused. I wished to see the caveman!” Again, this shows us that Odysseus has a lot of nerve; he is facing off against a massive cyclopes. It also shows us how he is fearless; while his men all want to run, Odysseus stays.
In particular, they encouraged and helped Dally, who recently recovered from the hospital, in fighting in the rumble. Dally even says, “‘We gotta win that fight tonight...

In “The most dangerous game” written by, Richard Connell, he uses many devices such as: characterization, plot structure and theme to contribute to the overall meaning of the story. Characterization is a big part of the overall meaning of the story which is that survival is of those who are smart, cunning, and can adapt to their environment. The protagonist Rainsford is at a constant battle with the antagonist General Zaroff. Throughout the entire short story they both have similar minds sets and then farther along the main character 's mind set develops into something more.

For example, Neymar, who is a free-flowing, showboating football phenom, uses his style of play to express himself on the pitch.
I cuss him out like my own son. But every time he takes a hit to his head, that scares me, it scares the hell out of me”(Newton). Bo Jackson was a two sport athlete. He played two professional sports, football and baseball. Many consider him to be one of the greatest
