Bronze Heads

"In the Hall of Fame Gallery, a Green Bay Packers fan looks at bronze busts of enshrinees at The Pro Football Hall of Fame on August 3, 2013 in Canton, Ohio."

This month, I had the opportunity to travel to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

From gold jackets, heartfelt speeches, to witnessing persevered history of the game, and bronze busts - the entire weekend was inspirational.

As an athlete, I treat most everyday life like sports. I firmly believe sports builds character and teaches young men and women about life long before they realize it. Still to this day, I continually lean on and learn from my teammates, coaches and mentors.

Getting to experience three days surrounded by like-minded sports folk, athletes was really uplifting. I left Canton feeling re-energized and suggest everyone make it there at least once - whether you're a fan, player or coach. And even if you're not any of the aforementioned, or perhaps working the event, it's a must attend weekend.

Thanks to everyone at the Hall of Fame for their time and energy putting on such an amazing weekend. I hope to return in the near future.
