A Sports Star Worth Celebrating

Ty Warren of the New England Patriots is not exactly the biggest star in the NFL, but he has won a couple of Super Bowls.

I found this story about him from ESPN's website to be refreshing: Warren passed up a $250,000 off-season workout bonus in order to stay home with his wife and three kids while finishing his college degree from Texas A&M.

In an age of sports stars who think they are invincible because of their athletic prowess, I was encouraged to read about Warren's concern for his family, education and life after football.

I trust there are many stories like this, but unfortunately they don't often make the headlines.
