Richard Sherman grew up on the streets of Compton, California riddled with crime, drugs and gangs. He fortunately escaped this life by excelling academically in the classroom and athletically on the football field. After graduating in three years from Stanford University, he was drafted in 2011 by the Seattle Seahawks. Not content with being a NFL All-Pro, Sherman helped create a vision within his community by stating that there are better options outside of being in a gang with associated criminal behavior. Richard Sherman, after being inspired by his own role model, subsequently used his football fame to create a foundation that supports and motivates young inner city youth to overcome obstacles.
The Bears got themselves out of trouble and Burgess made his old team mates pay, charging through the line to dash 60 metres for his hat trick. Levido added the extras and it was 20 points to 2 at half time. Wyong were literally running up hill the second half, three converted tries behind the Bears and Morrie Breen Oval slopes from north to south made the job hard. The Roos had the majority of the ball early in the second half but could not convert into points. It was a different story for North’s though, scoring their fifth try thanks to Latrell Robinson backing up Sitveni Moceidreke to score right in front.
If it already has not been recognized, Ali had an exceptional career inside the ring and remarkably outside of the ring as well. Ali gave young blacks hope to have a successful life no matter what circumstances they were in. He suffered from Parkinson’s disease and did a lot for charities to help others dealing with the same disease that he was fighting. Ali became one of the greatest individuals in sports of all time while helping young black people believe that they can accomplish whatever they set their mind to. From the words of Evander Holyfield stated in the article “The Greatest,” written by Gordon Morino, “In my neighborhood, when I was just a boy, everyone was always telling me, ‘You ain’t gonna be nothing.’ Then one day I heard Ali on television boasting about how he was the greatest and telling people ‘you can do anything.’ I was amazed.

Now that he’s won a superbowl and recognized as, perhaps, the best quarterback in football, many forget that Aaron Rodgers’ success was guaranteed. Every step, from highschool, to college, to the day he was drafted, to the day he stepped in to replace Brett Favre as the Packers’ quarterback, Aaron Rodgers has been underestimated. “I’ve always felt like I’ve been underappreciated. I’ve been
Terrell Owens-The Machine in The Field Terrell Owens is inarguably one of the most controversial figures off the field in the history of NFL. Born in 1973, the six-time Pro Bowl selection has played for Seattle Seahawks for the better part of his career. He is a talented player and is highly respected for his abilities in the field. Owens holds and shares several NFL records and whenever he is in the field the NFL betting odds cannot be stacked against him. Hall of Fame Plight Earlier this year, it was an unexpected turn of events when Terrell Owens failed to get voted in the Hall of fame awards.
Palmer missed a wide-open Darren Fells that would have resulted in a first down. All game long, Palmer looked off- he looked much more like the Palmer at the end of his time with the Bengals than the Palmer we have grown accustom to seeing. Palmer finished the game with six turnovers. Larry Fitzgerald, who has been the NFL’s most reliable receiver over the last decade, had two wide-open drops. The Panthers’ defense held the Cardinal’s terrific wide receiving trio of Fitzgerald, John Brown, and Michael Floyd to a combined 80 receiving yards.
Le is a different looking person, who would stand out in a crowd just by his height alone. Frazier had been friends with Le for so long, that he’s seen him at his best: fit and built like that of a football player, down to his worst: when he was fighting “generic cancer” and was claiming that he would be dead in six weeks. Eight years later, and the man is still kicking. Their friendship has also had some rocky moments. Le can be quite
The Australian flyweight title was his first title fight, and he won it quite convincingly. Sadly Lionel passed away 4 years ago, on the 18th of June, 2011. He passed of a heart disease he had been battling for a few year. In 2007 he had a stroke, leaving him partially paralysed and with speech disabilities. He was rewarded a state funeral for all his boxing achievements and all of the fighting he put in for aboriginal rights.
In his career he had some things that molded him to his character. He realised that he wanted to be a football player when he was in High School, but he worked twice as hard in college. And after college he was drafted to the Atlanta Falcons and that when he joined the NFL. “You know I’ve had my ups and downs.” Is another quote from Brett Favre.
