I’m sorry, who doesn’t like football??

14 hours after finding out that his brother was killed in a motorcycle accident, Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (right) gave a moving performance in a 31-30 win over the New England Patriots. Teammate Ray Lewis embraces him after the game.

Ray Lewis is my favorite football player but not because of his stats or records. It’s his mentality and actions. Ray Lewis coachs young black teens from the worst neighborhoods in America and shows them a male image that many of them had never seen before. It’s his dedication and the passion that he brings to the things he loves that is truly amazing. He said ”Greatness is alot of small things put together. Walk as a king so people will remember you as a king.” One of the most inspirational black men alive today. @KingKwajo

I’ve always been told that I’m too small. I’m not big enough. I’m not fast enough. I don’t have what it takes. I prepare so NO ONE can take what is mine. NO ONE can replace my mind, my heart. To be the best and stay there, sweat is necessary. I’m older. Of course I’m older. That’s the beauty of it. 16 YEARS PLUS. Different level of wisdom, different level of understanding, different level of punishment. I wanna live long after my records have fallen; long after my rings have tarnished. Whatever you got to do to make sure you chase your legacy every second of your life. Will you be remembered? HOW will you be remembered? Why wouldn’t you fight for the greatest achievement ever? LEAVE. YOUR. MARK. to endure forever!
